According to the Dallas Morning News’ Chuck Carlton, Warren wasn’t happy about his playing time with the Longhorns and his move to tight end. He spoke about why he left for the NFL Draft and his concerns about how he was used at Texas:
“Coming out, some things happened and then I figured it would be best for my family if I came out instead of going back to school for another year. Originally I was just trying to leave the university, trying to get somewhere else, I just feel I wasn’t going to be put in a position where I would want to shine.”
Warren also said the players and coaches were sometimes not on the same page, but that practices for the Texas Bowl brought the team closer together.
“”Like the team and coaches were coming together but I do feel like there also was a disconnect somewhere along the line,” Warren said. “If something came to where the coaches and team were coming together, that helped them in their bowl game.”
Warren did not play in the Texas Bowl after declaring an intention to transfer schools. He did, however, say that he sees the Longhorns having success in the future.
“Coach Herman and his staff have definitely instilled a huge work ethic in the guys there,” Warren said, “and I do believe the guys coming in are really good players and they can help the team. I think that Texas can get back to where they should be.”
