Collin Warmouth, a 6’3” point guard from Roseburg High School, is one of the most lethal playmakers in the class of 2019. With tremendous scoring ability paired with elite athleticism, the junior hopes to help Roseburg close in on their first league title in years.
Warmouth’s ability to attack the rim makes him the most prolific slasher in the Southwest Conference, and by constantly making athletic drives at the basket, he opens up a world of drive and dish opportunities that boost his assist numbers. The Roseburg point guard’s deadly crossover and size give him the tools to play at the next level, and his solid outside shot spreads the defense thin and adds a new dimension to his game.
“My ability to score the ball in all different ways will provide opportunities for everyone,” Warmouth said. “Also my leadership abilities will help bring the team together and push them to continue to improve.”
Leading a team as a junior is no easy task, but Warmouth seems to be up for any challenge that faces him. The do-it-all athlete also plays quarterback for the Indians in the fall, and baseball in the spring, giving him a loaded schedule year round. Putting up consistent numbers in all three of these sports is seemingly impossible, but Warmouth proved the doubters wrong last year by playing a significant role on each stage.
“I’m always busy and have no breaks throughout the year,” Warmouth said. “I try to get in the basketball gym during my other sports as much as I can” he added.
This extra work earned Warmouth first team all conference honors as a sophomore, a rare occurrence that should raise his stock in the recruiting world. To get to that position, Warmouth undoubtedly led his team by averaging nearly 17 points, 3 assists, and 5 rebounds per game. These numbers are very impressive, and the fact that Warmouth has gone virtually unnoticed on the basketball court is surprising to say the least.
Heading forward, Warmouth should be the second best pure offensive threat in the SWC, second to the likes of Jay Elmore. Warmouth should also continue to get his teammates involved efficiently, and if the Indians play their cards right, their centerpiece could be in the conversation for All-State honors.
