Blinn's Warren is the man in the middle

With more teams using a 3-4 scheme as their base defense, run-stuffing nose tackles who can occupy blockers and get penetration are becoming a hot commodity. Blinn DT/NT Sean Warren (6-0, 295) already has one offer to his name and he's getting a lot of attention from some other D-1 programs. caught up with the talented interior lineman and he updated us on things...

Warren prepped at Texas City High School and was a full-qualifier, however he only got looks from some D-2 schools so he opted to go the JC route.

"I had a few friends who came up to Blinn to play and they said I should come up and we had all talked about going to school together so I decided it would be best to come to Blinn," Warren told recently. "I've been really happy here. The coaches are great, the program is great and I've learned a lot here.

"They've taught me how to work hard and what kind of a work ethic I would need to get to the next level. They've taught me so much as far as lifting weights and just focusing on my technique to get better every day."

As a freshman for Blinn, Warren posted 20 tackles, five quarterback hurries and five tackles-for-loss.

"I played the nose most of the time, so it was my job to take up the middle, so our speed guys could run to the ball," Warren said. "Honestly, I don't mind not getting tackles. I'll do the dirty work. I'll do what needs to be done so we can win. That's my ultimate goal anyway -- wins."

On the recruiting front, one school has already stepped forward with an offer for Warren and he hopes more could be on the way in the future.

"North Texas offered me so I have a D-1 offer," an relieved Warren said. "My goal in coming to Blinn was to go D-1 after I finished so I'm excited I have that option right now.

"SMU, UAB, Troy, McNeese State and LSU have been sending me stuff too, so I might have more offers if I do well during the season."

Warren has excellent physical numbers to go with his outstanding size, posting a 5.31 forty time, a 345 pound bench press, a 515 pound squat and a 28-inch vertical.

Because he was a full-qualifier, Warren will be able to sign with a school in December and he'll have three years to play two following the season.
