Warren is one of Tennessee’s top remaining targets in the 2024 recruiting cycle and is the top remaining offensive line target on the board. Beating out two (future) conference foes and Michigan would mark a massive win for Josh Heupel and offensive line coach Glen Elarbee.
The 6-foot-7, 330 pound offensive tackle ranks as the nation’s 143rd best prep prospect according to the 247sports composite rankings. Warren also ranks as the nation’s No. 8 offensive tackle and the No. 25 player in the state of Texas.
The blue-chip offensive lineman has taken one unofficial visit and one official visit to all three of Michigan, Oklahoma and Texas A&M. Warren has taken just one visit to Tennessee— the last of his four June official visits.
Despite not visiting Tennessee before his official visit, the Vols have become a serious player in Warren’s recruitment since the visit.
Tennessee football’s 2024 recruiting class currently contains 18 commitments including from four offensive lineman. While the Vols have four offensive lineman committed, three-star Jesse Perry is the only Tennessee commit that will definitively play offensive tackle in college.
The Vols’ 2024 recruiting class currently ranks No. 10 nationally according to the 247sports team rankings. A commitment from Warren would boast Tennessee’s class to No. 8 nationally.
