Since the Texas Longhorns offered Many (La.) defensive end Myron Warren back in early October, the 6’3, 240-pounder has been a bit of a mystery in one key regard — there wasn’t any publicly available film on the consensus three-star prospect.
Now committed to the Horns since just before Thanksgiving, Warren’s game stepped out of the proverbial shadows on Monday when he debuted his senior film on Hudl.
According to the video, Warren had 85 tackles, 30 tackles for loss, and 14 sacks during a monster senior season that could vault him into the ranks of four-star prospects.
In it, Warrens shows off his ability as a speed rusher from the edge and as a run-stopping force. He displays excellent quickness off the ball and strong overall athleticism, including change-of-direction ability. Capable of overwhelming opponents physically, there’s a nastiness to Warren’s game that is aided by his strong motor — just look at how he finishes nearly every tackle with the maximum amount of force.
The question with Warren is how quickly he can translate his game from 2A Louisiana high school football to playing against high-level college athletes. There will definitely be a major jump, as the quality of his competition does not appear strong.
However, many athletes from Louisiana, especially from smaller schools, have plenty of untapped physical upside when they arrive on campus. Warren fits that mold — he’s the defensive end version of 2016 signee Malcolm Roach, who played linebacker at Madison Prep in Baton Rouge.
So, if it was hard to feel excited about Warren when he pledged due to the lack of film on him, Texas fans now have more insight into a player who could eventually replace Roach in the starting lineup. And the insights are heartening.
Warren is ranked as the No. 637 player nationally, the No. 44 strong-side defensive end, and the No. 24 player in Louisiana, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
