There are a few things in this world you simply cannot teach – but you can recruit. Of course, everyone talks about speed, but size is right up there, especially when it comes to the world of college football recruiting.
The nation’s powerhouse programs are always on the lookout for the biggest, strongest guys to replace the big, strong guy who just graduated or moved on to the NFL.
In the case of 2015 offensive line recruit Dallas Warmack, an older brother has already paved the way. Chance Warmack was one of the best lineman on a 2012 Alabama front considered one of the best in college football history, and now his little brother is poised to determine where he will be pancaking defenders at the collegiate level.
But will it be for Bama?
At 6-foot-1 and a whopping 295 pounds, “little” Warmack already has an offer on the table to succeed his older brother with the Tide. Tennessee and Georgia are the other two SEC schools to extend a scholarship offer his way.
ESPN.com recruiting expert Radi Nabulsi expects Warmack to commit to a school in the next two months.
“I would like to make my decision before the season starts,” Warmack said. “That’s when I’ll make my decision. If anything happens and I get hurt, I will be committed to a school. All the schools I talked to they wouldn’t take my scholarship away if I end up getting hurt.”
While there is no guarantee he will be playing for Alabama, we have to respect his mindset. Taking care of himself and making sure he is in line for a college-level education is a smart move.
We are, however, crossing our fingers that he declares for the Tide. Let’s make this a family affair.
