Warner pops up on scene

Troy Warner has performed well at numerous 7on7 events this summer but he thinks it will take a few games in his junior season for more schools to get involved.
The 2016 defensive back from San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills has an offer from BYU and he said a few programs have reached out but he's mainly staying patient at this point until the season rolls around in the coming weeks.
"Right now I just have the offer from BYU and I talked to coach (Demetrice Martin) from UCLA along with Notre Dame," Warner said. "They're not talking to me too much but it's them and a few more Pac-12 schools.
"Once I do some good things on the field the first few games I feel like that will be when more schools will hit me up."
BYU could play a major factor in Warner's recruitment for a bunch of reasons. His older brother, Fred, committed to the Cougars in their 2014 class.
Warner, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound defensive back who looked especially good last weekend at the Huntington Beach 7on7, said he loves the BYU campus and there is a religious affiliation as well that could play a factor.
It's early, though, so Warner is not rushing a thing.
"I'm still keeping it open," Warner said. "Nothing is set but I do like the school. It doesn't give any other school less of a chance.
"I like what they stand for. I checked out their campus and I like that. They don't only play for themselves but they play for their family. It's a Mormon school and I'm Mormon so that's important.
"I'm going to take my time and make sure I'm making the right decision."
