Warmack impressed?

Mays offensive lineman Dallas Warmack isn't even a junior yet but that hasn't stopped him from getting major attention.

As a matter of fact, it hasn't stopped two of the schools with which he is most familiar from offering him.

Those two teams are Georgia, the home state team that he grew up following, and Alabama, the school where his brother, Chance, played and racked up accolade after accolade in his four years in Tuscaloosa.

Warmack was there when those two teams squared off in the Georgia Dome for the SEC Championship game last December, and he is grateful that both programs have decided to offer so soon.

"It was a great game and we had a great time at that game," Warmack said. "Just to have those two programs coming at me and telling me that they want me and that I am a good player is just a great thing. I'm so happy that both decided to offer me."

On Tuesday, Warmack made his second visit of the summer to UGA to get a deeper look at the program, and the rising junior came away impressed.

"The visit went great," he said. "We learned a lot about the academics and we already know about the football program and athletic part of it. It was basically to see the academic part and we like it. Georgia has the No. 1 Communications program in the nation. My parents (Dylan and Courtney Warmack) love that because that is what I want to major in. We also saw how there is a great supporting staff for education at Georgia and that is what every player needs."

The focus of the visit may have been academics, but the Warmack family also spent some time with the Georgia coaching staff.

According to the Peach State lineman, he is already forming a good relationship with the Bulldog coaches.

"I feel very comfortable with the coaching staff at Georgia.," he said. "Coach (Bryan) McClendon, coach (Will) Friend, and we had a long talk with Coach Mark Richt in his office for about two hours. It was a nice bonding time."

Some may think that Warmack's older brother is urging him to follow in his footsteps to Alabama, but he says that isn't the case.

Warmack says that he knows his brother will support him no matter where he goes.

"My brother has told me that whatever I decide, he will be happy with it," Warmack said. "He told me that he is going to be behind me in every decision I make. I actually grew up a UGA fan and I really started loving Alabama when my brother went there and I got to know the coaching staff and see everything there."

When comparing both programs, Warmack also admits that both schools are so high on his list because of the similarities between the two.

"I like the same thing about both programs," he said. "At Alabama, there is great athletics, great academics, great coaching staff, and great people around the program, too. You can tell that at both places everyone cares about the players."

On Friday, Warmack will take his third trip of the summer to UGA for the annual Dawg Night event and in the near future, he plans on getting back to Alabama as well.

"I'm going but I'm not going to work out at Dawg Night," Warmack said of his immediate plans. "I'm just going to get some time with the coaching staff and enjoy my time there. I plan on making it back to Alabama pretty soon. I may be back in the next week or two when I get in touch with the coaches there."

With Alabama and Georgia firmly in the mix, Warmack says that he will also take a look at Tennessee as the Volunteers offered earlier this week.

Other schools will likely offer in the coming months, but the blue chip lineman says that he will have a decision sooner rather than later.
