Who’s who of schools are chasing T.J. Warren

T.J. Warren is considered one of the premier scorers in the nation and this past week his ability to score the ball was on display throughout the AAU Nationals.

The Brewster Academy bound North Carolina native had a 38-point performance in Orlando. Few players can put up points like Warren can.

Because of that, the elite programs are in tow.

His list of schools consists of Georgetown, Florida, Kansas, UNC, N.C. State, Texas and Kentucky. Warren has been around the recruiting game long enough to know who is serious. In fact, a couple of schools are jumping out, he says.

“Kentucky, Georgetown, Kansas, and Florida stick out, but pretty much everyone is on the same level right now,” Warren said. “N.C. State, UNC, and Kentucky have been recruiting me the hardest but I like all of the coaching staffs, I have a different relationship with each one.”

When asked what motivates him to be one of the best scorers in the class of 2012 he replied: “I just want to continue working on all aspects of my game, three-pointers, driving, pull-ups, and posting up, I just want to master them all and be the best player possible.”

Some of the things he is looking for in a program are “a style that fits me, location, and good relationships with the coaching staff.”

Location sticks out in particular because both UNC and N.C. State are hot after the small forward and it could come down to those two if location really does play a factor. UNC just moved Warren’s visit to this weekend and plan on offering him face to face, according to those familiar with his recruitment.

If UNC is making him a priority can N.C State land one of the best scorers in the nation? We’re going to have to wait to find out.

“I’ll probably make a decision around Christmas time.” Warren said.
