Chapel Hill Defensive Lineman Shaquille Warren Gives Verbal Commitment to Central Arkansas
Less than a week after one Chapel Hill senior defensive lineman secured his college future by making public his oral commitment, another Bulldogs’ D-lineman has done the same.
Shaquille Warren offered his verbal pledge to Central Arkansas during an official visit to the Conway campus Sunday afternoon, Chapel Hill head football coach and athletic director Thomas Sitton told ETSN.fm. The announcement comes four days after Warren’s classmate — Keith Minor — committed to New Mexico.
Warren gives Chapel Hill’s 2014 class its fourth Division I pledge. Defensive back Joseph Clark committed to Texas Tech in July, athlete Wesley Thompson chose ULM in November. Quarterback Andrew Black pledged to Division II Henderson State on Monday of last week.
Central Arkansas is an FCS school and competes in the Southland Conference. The Bears finished 7-5 overall and 4-3 in league play last season.
Warren (6-3, 226) was a member of one of the best defensive lines in East Texas, along with Minor and fellow senior Kevone Kennedy. Warren finished his senior season with 69 tackles, 15 for loss, a team-high seven sacks and two fumble recoveries in helping Chapel Hill to a 9-5 record and a run to the Class 3A Division I Region II final.
All oral commitments are non-binding. The first day recruits can officially sign letters of intent is Feb. 5.
