Warmack out to impress

MARIETTA - Mays High offensive lineman Dallas Warmack admits he hasn't had much opportunity to visit many schools that might one day be interested in his services.

But he's got a pretty good excuse.

Until just recently, the 2015 prospect would travel whenever they could to Tuscaloosa, Ala., where his older brother Chance enjoyed an All-SEC career playing for the national champion Crimson Tide.

But now that big bro is busy preparing himself for the upcoming NFL Draft, his little brother has been able to get out a little bit more.

Last Saturday, he spent the day in Athens to check out the homestate Georgia Bulldogs before taking part in Sunday's Atlanta Rivals Camp Series.

"It was my first time getting to Athens, and I liked it a lot," said Warmack, only 15 years old. "I had a really good time."

Apparently Bulldog coaches were impressed.

Although Warmack has yet to receive a verbal offer, the 6-foot-2, 280-pound offensive guard said coaches from both Alabama and Georgia will be attending his upcoming spring game.

He's also been invited to attend both the Mark Richt Camp and Dawg Night later on this summer.

"They said they want to come and see me perform," Warmack said. "After that, anything can happen."

For some, following in big brother's sizeable cleats might be an uncomfortable journey.

But Warmack doesn't mind.

"Not at all. I look up to my brother, he always tells me not to get cocky, but stay confident. He just tells me to take this recruiting process at my own pace," he said. "Part of me wants to get out of his shadow a little bit, but it's pretty cool to be a Warmack right now."
