Transfer Tracker: Texas DE Myron Warren enters the portal
The Transfer Portal has changed the landscape of college football. So at Rivals we bring you the Transfer Tracker, where we analyze players entering the portal and rate them on what kind of impact they could make at their new home.
AS A RECRUIT
Warren initially committed to TCU, but re-opened his recruitment once his offer list started to expand. He later landed at Texas, choosing the Longhorns over a number of other suitors during his senior season.
Warren's career with the Longhorns never got off the ground as he didn't log a single snap as a true freshman. He was expected to compete for playing time this year, but elected to enter the portal this week instead.
POTENTIAL LANDING SPOTS
A one-time TCU commit, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him end up back with the Horned Frogs, who have been active in the transfer market this offseason. USC might also be an option, with several former Longhorns coaches now with the Trojans.
"Warren was a bit of a late bloomer in high school but turned into one of the best pass rushers in the state of Louisiana for 2019. The former TCU commitment ended up at Texas as a big get for the Longhorns and its unclear why he is leaving as he was expected to be in the two deep this season. He can play end or guard at a high level and should attract plenty of Group of Five interest." -- National Recruiting Director Mike Farrell
Impact Rating: 7.0 out of 10
The Transfer Portal continues to change the way college football programs recruit and mange their rosters so we here at Rivals.com continue to evolve our coverage. Each time a player of note enters the portal, we will examine their potential impact on the college football landscape and assign an impact rating, both when they enter the portal and when they choose a destination. The scale is from 1-10 and the description below explains the scoring scale.
1.1-4.0 — Not a big impact expected, likely a non-starter and down the bench depth player.
4.1- 6.0 — A solid impact can be expected in the right scenario and has the potential to battle for a starting job.
6.1-9.0. — A high impact player who won’t change a program but will certainly be a very good contributor and starter.
9.1- 9.9 — A very high impact player who should start the moment he steps on the field and will change the outlook of a program immediately.
10 — A franchise transfer who has a chance to be an All American and one of the elite players in college football.
