Ranked no. 66 in the Prep Hoops Texas 200, Collin Warren is emerging as a valuable Division I prospect. The talented senior is coming off a 29-point and six-assist playoff performance against Houston Lamar.

“Our mindset is to play for each other and do whatever it takes to win,” Warren said after his team’s playoff victory. “Elkins basketball is a brotherhood and we are all in.”

A 6-foot-3 athletic guard, Warren has performed well throughout the regular season. ” I believe I’ve played great and I’m blessed to have wonderful teammates that find me in the right spots and love to play the game just as much as I do,” says Warren. His well-above average level of play has caused his recruitment to pick up a bit. He currently holds offers from Houston Baptist, Lamar, McNeese State, and Navy. Warren has also heard from Murray State, New Mexico, Northern Colorado, and Stephen F. Austin.

IN COLLIN’S WORDS

Houston Baptist: Houston Baptist offered this week. I look forward to communication with the Huskies’ coaching staff. The campus is local and I’m moved by the timely access this provides as the recruitment goes forward.

McNeese State: I have visited McNeese State informally. The McNeese State coaching staff has shown dedication to their reach. I appreciate their honorable recruitment demeanor.

Navy: The Naval Academy is at the first stages of recruiting me. I have not taken that visit at this time, but my communication with the Naval Academy coaching staff is always informative and positive. I believe the Naval Academy coaching staff shows great leadership and the desire to recruit academic and athletic leadership. It’s an undeniable balance I can appreciate.

FINAL THOUGHTS

When talking about his plans once he arrives on a college campus, Warren states, “It is to my understanding that the next level has access to more technology concerning the athlete’s improvement. I’m open to that development to be successful at the next level.” He also mentioned that he is looking to improve all parts of his game to meet all of his coach’s demands.

As of right now, Warren is solely focused on helping his team reach the state tournament in San Antonio. The Knights face Katy Morton Ranch for a Tuesday night playoff matchup at the Merrell Center.
