Centreville (Clifton, VA) 6-4, 250-pound offensive lineman Beau Warren recently added Vanderbilt to his list of scholarship offers. He has never visited Vanderbilt, but plans on doing so very soon. He has visited the two other schools to offer – Syracuse and Virginia Tech – and recently made a visit to UNC, which is showing serious interest.
“It was pretty nice,” Warren said of UNC. “It was just a random visit. They showed me around the football facilities first and then we got in a golf cart and they showed me the rest of the campus. It was a really nice day outside, so it made the campus look a lot better. It was awesome.”
When asked what stood out about UNC, Warren said, “I thought the coaches were nice and I thought the facilities were really good, too. I love the environment. The whole campus has that nature feel to it.”
Warren’s visit to Syracuse, which signed former Centreville standouts Daniel and Derek Bailey and Andrew Lewis in the 2005 class, took place earlier this year.
“I thought the campus was nice,” Warren said of Syracuse. “It was different compared to UNC because it was kind of city-based. But their stadium and facilities were really nice and I thought what stood out the most was the new coaching staff. They were great.”
With two brothers currently at Virginia Tech on football scholarships, Beau has become very familiar with Blacksburg. Having two brothers at Virginia Tech isn’t a negative thing for Warren,
who has been to Tech on many, many occasions.
“No, it doesn’t affect me negatively,” Warren said of his brothers being at Tech. “It affects me positively. They would help me adjust to the first year and stuff like that. And since they’ve been there, I’ve been able to see the campus a lot more and stuff and become more accustomed to it.”
Warren wants to make a decision before the start of his senior season but doesn’t appear close at this time.
“I wanted it to be as early as possible, but it might take a little longer than I’d hoped because it’ll take a little more thinking and seeing new schools,” Warren said. “Basically, I’m considering Vanderbilt, UNC, Syracuse and Virginia Tech.”
When asked if any school had the edge, Warren replied, “not too much.”
In addition to a visit to Vanderbilt, Warren hopes to visit Duke very soon as well. Each school is recruiting him to play along the offensive line.
