Great Coaches,Great Environment,Great Academics, and Winning tradition on the rise,Honored to be committed to The University of %%MATCH_3%%— Clark Kent (@%%MATCH_0%%) December 17, 2014
The commitment wasn't much of a surprise as many had thought Warren was poised to commit to the Huskies last week, however, he was talked into waiting until January 8th so he could announce at his school in a media event.
After thinking about things, Warren said he and his mom just decided to make his decision public and neither of them could be happier.
"We were talking about it and my mom was like 'just do it and get it over with', so I called up the coaches and told them my decision," a happy Warren told Dawgman.com. "It's exciting. Coach Petersen said I made his Christmas and with the guys committing (over the past couple of days), it's pretty cool that I made him that happy.
"I'm just relieved. I knew I wanted to go there, especially with the staff there. I really like them a lot and I feel really comfortable with them and their philosophy on things."
Many were surprised it took the Huskies so long to offer the talented prospect, but he said he wasn't frustrated or concerned at all.
"They were real up front with me and told me how the process works," Warren said. "They take their time evaluating guys to make sure they are an 'OKG' and so when that offer comes, to me at least, it was much more meaningful."
Warren helped lead his team to the state quarterfinals from his linebacker spot and he said that's the spot he'll play when he arrives at Washington next summer.
"Coach (Bob) Gregory and I talked about where I will play when I was up there for my visit and he said he could see me at middle linebacker or outside linebacker and I think they even might want to see me as a BUCK too," Warren noted. "I'm excited about my opportunity there with guys leaving, so it's all about me being ready once I get there to do what I need to do to make it so they can't keep me off the field."
Warren chose Washington over offers from Washington State and California%.
