Warner still working on visits

Fred Warner remains committed to BYU but two schools in particular, USC and Washington, continue to pursue the three-star linebacker as the off-season moves on.
One important note to consider as Warner's recruitment continues is that he does not plan to take a mission after high school which could play a factor for teams that choose to keep coming after the San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills recruit.
"All the different teams and especially BYU have asked about my mission," Warner said. "What I tell them right now is that I don't plan on taking one because it's not something I want to do even though I'm LDS.
"If I do decide to take one later on, I might take one, but as of right now I don't plan to take one. I'm going to play football right into college."
USC and Washington have not stepped back from recruiting Warner, even though he's been committed to BYU since early April.
The Trojans might be of particular interest since it's the local school for Warner and USC has not slowed down one bit. His recruitment actually has gotten busier since his pledge.
"Because of the tradition of USC and because it's such a great college," Warner said. "They're big time and being from Southern California I'd be close to home. There is still a lot of stuff to think about."
Official visits are being worked out. Warner will definitely visit BYU sometime this fall and then trips to USC and Washington are also expected.
In total, the three-star has been offered by Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, BYU, Cal, New Mexico State, USC, Utah, Washington and Washington State.
"I don't have anything planned right now except for BYU," Warner said. "Different schools are trying to talk to me about setting one up with them like USC and Washington have talked to me about it but I haven't set up anything yet."
