Class of 2024 prospect Bennett Warren has received over 15 offers since Jan. 18, including one from Tennessee football. The attention for Warren is no surprise.
At 6-foot-7 and 305-pounds, the offensive tackle has gained some major attention from major schools.
“It’s a great thing to know that I’m being recruited, and I’m blessed and honored that these programs think of me,” Warren told Off The Hook Sports.
Tennessee football joined the Warren sweepstakes on Jan. 18. Texas A&M, LSU and Auburn round out his SEC offers.
“I had a reaction of excitement to the Tennessee offer,” Warren said. “It was coach (Kevin) Pendleton who gave me the offer and I’ve built a pretty great relationship with all the coaches.”
Pendleton’s role on Tennessee’s staff, after coming on in later 2022, is assistant offensive line coach. Offensive line coach Glen Elarbee has also been involved in Warren’s recruitment.
During his recent onslaught of offers, Warren has received a lot of attention from many schools nationwide.
“I’d say Auburn, Ole Miss, Michigan, Texas, A&M, and Oregon are also recruiting me pretty hard,” he said.
Hailing from Sugar Land, Texas, in-state Texas A&M has seemed to become an early favorite to land Warren. With one crystal ball projection on 247Sports pointing toward the Aggies, they may be the program to beat.
Warren made it to College Station for an unofficial visit before the February dead period.
“It was awesome,” Warren said about his visit to Texas A&M. “It also helps that I know so many players from A&M.”
Warren doesn’t have any visit lined up for the offseason yet, other than a trip to Tennessee. While there isn’t a date for his trip yet, he would like to stay for “a couple of days” to take in multiple practices and get a good feel for Knoxville.
The offensive tackle had a solid season for Fort Bend Christian Academy, earning first-team All-District and second-team All-State honors. Although he is yet to be ranked by 247Sports, it is safe to assume that ranking is on the way.
As for a timeline for Warren, he doesn’t have anything set in stone yet.
“I’ll probably narrow my recruiting down over the summer but nothing yet,” he said. “Any and all programs are free to recruit me.”
When Warren takes visits over the offseason, he will be looking for a school that will allow him to achieve his goals.
“I’m looking for a place where I feel most at home, where I can be myself but also get good work in and get to pursue my goals,” he said.
