With only a month until National Signing Day, four-star Myron Warren needed to see Austin before making his decision.

Mission accomplished.

The 6-foot-4, 235-pound defensive end from Many, LA committed to Texas today. He chose the Longhorns over Oregon, Tennessee, Nebraska, and TCU among the 27 offers.

Warren visited Baton Rouge last weekend, but LSU didn’t offer. That opened the door for the Louisiana native at Texas. He joins Malcolm Roach, Mike Williams, and others from Da Boot to call themselves Longhorns.

“It was home,” said Warren, to IT’s Justin Wells. “The coaches and players made me feel like I was already a part of the team.” 

Excerpt from the Recruiting Notebook: Warren is another great fit along the DL for Texas at the 4i-technique. He’s got a lightning quick first step that’s essential to playing the position and securing gaps against zone blocking OL or slanting on the blitz. You figure he’ll end up at 6-3, 270 easily enough and offer some of the same disruption up front that Malcolm Roach is bringing these days. – Ian Boyd
