Four-star running back Chris Warren chooses Texas over UW on National Signing Day

Rockwall (Texas) four-star running back Chris Warren will stay close to home, choosing the University of Texas over Washington at a National Signing Day ceremony at his school Wednesday morning.

Texas and UW were his two finalists. He flipped a coin during his ceremony, then announced his commitment to the Longhorns.

Warren and his mother, a Seattle area native, made an official visit to the UW campus this past weekend, giving the Huskies hope that the touted running back might be willing to leave Texas.

Warren, one of the nation’s top recruits, rushed for 2,320 yards and 36 touchdowns in leading Rockwall to a 12-1 record in Texas’ largest classification this past season.

His father of the same name is regarded as one of the best running backs in Seahawks history. The elder Warren, a fourth-round draft pick in 1990, finished his Seahawks career as the franchise’s career leader with 6,706 yards (a record later broken by Shaun Alexander).
