HAMPTON, Va. – Some say T.J. Warren has an “old man’s game” or is coasting through games, but Warren doesn’t let that bother him.
He simply continues to get the job done.
Warren, a 6-foot-7 forward from Word of God (N.C.), starred this past season alongside Torian Graham and Joseph Uchebo and continues to impress on the AAU circuit with Garner Road. He has a versatile offensive game, with the ability to knock down mid-range jumpers and also finish at the rim with his strength. Warren has good hands and runs the floor well.
His skill set makes him a difficult match-up for most opponents.
“It’s because of my size,” Warren said. “I can put it on the floor, I have the ability to handle and I can shoot.”
While he is currently a combo forward who can play inside, Warren is looking to make the transformation to a wing.
“Colleges see me as a three,” he said. “I’m improving my foot speed and my 3-point shooting. I’m trying to get a killer instinct.”
Warren has seen his recruiting take off recently, picking up offers and interest from a variety of schools.
“Right now, in no order, it’s Florida, North Carolina State, Georgetown, Kansas, Ohio State and Louisville,” he said.
Warren also mentioned Arizona State, Arizona and Virginia Tech at one point.
He said he has no favorites or a timeline for a decision.
“I’m wide open,” Warren said. “I’m looking for style of play and location.”
