2015 RB gets surprise on Longhorns visit
By Max Olson
At the beginning of Texas’ Sophomore Day on Saturday, Chris Warren was told the coaching staff planned to offer about four or five scholarships to 2015 prospects.
“I didn’t think I would be in that bunch,” Warren said.
The sophomore running back from Rockwall, Texas, was in for a surprise. By the time the day was over, he had a verbal offer from the Longhorns.

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound athlete said Texas coaches also think he has the potential to play defensive end or linebacker. After all, he’s likely not done growing. But Warren was pleased and relieved to hear his offer was to play running back.
“The coaches say they like what they see and they’re probably going to come to my spring practice,” Warren said. “I was humbled and surprised. Like I said, I was just really surprised.”
