Early bird may land Warren

Those that wish to recruit Willie Warren, here is a little tip. Be at main gym at Westfield High School at 9:15 on Saturday morning during the Kingwood Classic. The 6-foot-4, 195-pound guard from North Crowley (Texas) High School will be waiting.

The five-star prospect is one of the most sought after players in the nation and the always candid Texan said he is hoping to find different ways to see who is really serious.

"That will show me who wants me and how bad they want me if they show up for an early game on a Saturday," Warren said. "That will say a lot."

Always cognizant of who is in the picture and who is not, Warren said he is paying even closer attention to who is standing on the sidelines and sitting in the bleachers.

There will certainly be a big following. Warren said he recently "re-opened" his recruitment despite not being a committed prospect.

"A lot of schools stopped recruiting me because they thought I had closed it off and was only considering a couple of schools. So (my mother and I) decided to re-open it because of the coaching changes. We'll see how that goes," Warren said.

Warren says Kentucky, Kansas and Texas "are the main three that are coming real hard since day one." Without calling the trio of programs his leaders, Warren said the schools are high on his list.

Maryland, Indiana, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Michigan, Florida, Marquette and "a whole bunch of other schools," Warren says, are also in the picture.
