Nigel Warrior has been rumored to have Alabama as his favorite school, but he squashed that speculation on Thursday.
Warrior, a 4-star safety from Peachtree Ridge High School (Suwanne, Ga.), thinks the rumors of him favoring Alabama stems from his numerous visits to see the Crimson Tide..
“That’s just all talk,” Warrior told SEC Country. “I’ve seen them play against really good teams, and I’ve liked what I have seen.”
The son of former NFL All-Pro and Tennessee Volunteers star Dale Carter said the six schools that he is strongly considering — Alabama, Tennessee, LSU, UGA, Florida and Ohio State — are all on equal ground.
“I do not have a favorite right now,” Warrior said. “Everybody is the same. Everything is neutral. Probably by the end of the season, I will have a team that I will really like.”
Ohio State is getting the first chance to impress the nation’s No. 3 safety. He will go on his first official visit this weekend for the Buckeyes’ game against Michigan State.
“Once I get up to (Columbus, Ohio), I am looking forward to seeing what it’s like being a football player there,” he said. “I want to know what their daily schedule looks like and see how the coaches coach.”
That’s the only official visit Warrior has set up as of now. He knows he wants to take one to Alabama and LSU. The other two official visits remain open.
Warrior will make his commitment on National Signing Day.
He is rated as the state of Georgia’s No. 4 overall prospect.
