Four-star has a change of plans

Four-star cornerback Donovan Warren (6-0, 175, 4.4) from Long Beach (Calif.) Poly has been very busy since his season ended two-weeks ago hosting in-house visits with DeWayne Walker from UCLA, Ken Norton Jr. from USC, and Ron English from Michigan.
The talented athlete has one more in-house visit before heading out before the holidays to take one of his last two visits. Warren has made some changes in his official visit plans too.
"Cal will be in my house tomorrow (Tuesday December 12th)," Warren said. "Then I'm going to take an official visit to USC this weekend and an official visit to UCLA on January 12th.
"That will be it for my official visits. I will make my college choice known on signing day."
"I have narrowed it down to four schools," Warren said. "They are UCLA, USC, Michigan and Cal."
"At UCLA they are building something special over there and it is close to home," Warren said. "I have a chance to come in and compete for playing time as a freshman, plus the academics are great.
"USC has a great football program and great tradition. A USC education is top of the line and the alumni after football is good.
"Anywhere I go out of the four schools, I will get a chance to come in and compete," Warren said. "It will be a matter of how I feel about the coaches and the chemistry of the players."
"If I leave the state it will be Michigan," Warren said. "Michigan is a great program and also has great tradition. Coach Ron English is a great coach and a down to earth guy."
"At Cal I have some of my boys up there," Warren said. "They also have a good program where I may get some early playing time because some players are leaving and Cal is one of the elite programs in the Pac 10."
