Earning first-team All-District honors with Cibolo’s Steele High School, Chad Warner got after Texas defenses last season. The breakout season with the Knights brought a growing recruiting spotlight with it. Slinging the ball around the yard with DEFCON in national 7-on-7 tournaments this offseason has helped Warner’s skills grow with more next level teams finding out about his talents.
Grambling State got on the board first with Warner, but the list of interested parties is growing.
“Houston, Baylor, Purdue, Pitt, UTSA, UIW, and Texas State are showing interest,” Warner said.
Power Five programs are sending representatives down to Cibolo to check out Warner’s arm talents.
“Houston came by, Purdue came by a couple of days ago, Baylor was down here, and so was Vanderbilt,” Warner stated. “That is all I can think of right now.”
The ball will be coming out hot at college camps this summer.
“I will probably go to Baylor, UTSA, Houston, Vanderbilt, Pitt, USC, UCLA, Tulsa, and I might go to Stanford,” Warner shared.
Keeping the wing firing, Warner spoke about his action with DEFCON.
“It was a really great season,” Warner said. “We were in the semifinals in every tournament. We are all sophomores; we had a very successful season.”
Working the Knights’ offense this spring, Warner explained the scheme.
“We run a bunch of different styles,” Warner stated. “We have RPOs (run-pass option), and we take shots. Our offense is balanced with everything mixed in.”
Preparing for the summer camps and fall schedule, Warner has been busy.
“I’ve been working on getting bigger and perfecting my craft,” Warner shared. “I know I can throw the ball; I have been working on my mobility and escaping the pocket.”
The work put in on his craft will show this fall.
“The biggest improvements have been the chemistry with my receivers, we played 7-on-7 together,” Warner said. “Our chemistry is there. Our timing is better. When my receivers are making their breaks, the ball is there. Our timing has been a big improvement.”
Warner threw darts last fall completing 69 percent of his attempts connecting on 171-of-249 throws for 2,436 yards with 23 touchdowns.
