Fall means football season and Collin Warmouth has been awfully busy. The all-around 6-foot-4, 175-pound wing is the starting quarterback at Roseburg High School and he’s trying to pick his squad up from a bit of a slow start. But Warmouth sees his abilities on the hardwood as his college future and he’s looking at quite a few possibilities after a good summer with Team Fly Williams.
“It was a lot of fun,” Warmouth said. “At the Bigfoot tournament we won our pool and we played the Georgia Stars, a pretty solid EYBL team but we ended up losing by five. Overall, I think I did pretty well as it was my first time playing AAU basketball and the style of play was a lot different than it is in high school. But it was fun and I was able to show that I can shoot it from anywhere.”
Shooters that can score from anywhere on the court with size are always in demand and it can be seen from the college interest Warmouth has been getting. He noted that he’s currently hearing from many of the state’s in-state Division III and NAIA schools including Willamette, Pacific, George Fox, and OIT, but also from some out-of-state schools such as Whitman, Chapman, Biola, and Point Loma Nazarene. So far one school stands a little more than the rest.
“I really like Point Loma,” Warmouth said. “Before Las Vegas, I took a visit there and I liked it a lot. The campus was really cool as it’s on the beach and talking to the coaches, I like them a lot.”
Point Loma Nazarene has not yet offered a scholarship so Warmouth is considering all of his options and is hoping to take more visits, which should spread out over the course of the school year as he doesn’t expect to decide anything until spring. In the meantime, he’ll continue on with trying to get Roseburg turned around after a rough 0-2 start.
“It’s been alright as we are off to a bit of a slow start,” Warmouth said. “But I think we’ll be doing a lot better.”
Warmouth currently ranks as the #22 player in the PrepHoops Oregon Class of 2019 rankings.
