SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS — As signing day nears for Nigel Warrior, his decision grows increasingly more difficult. But his recruitment has become clearer in recent weeks.
Per Warrior, he is no longer considering Ohio State or Auburn, two programs he identified with throughout the fall. He mentioned Georgia, Tennessee, LSU and Alabama as schools he’s considering moving forward.
The four-star safety is slated to officially visit LSU (Jan. 15), Alabama (Jan. 22) and Tennessee (Jan. 29) in the coming weeks.
Warrior told SEC Country his relationship with both the Tigers and Buckeyes has declined in recent months, spurning his decision to no longer give either any consideration. He points to his official visit to Ohio State (Nov. 21) and the departures of Will Muschamp and Travaris Robinson as factors behind his reasoning.
On Auburn: “I don’t know, because everybody left. So, what do I do now? I’m really not looking at Auburn anymore. Now that they have new people coming in, I know I’m not going to have a relationship with them that quickly.”
On Ohio State: “I didn’t really like my official visit. And then it’s cold, anyway. That was one of the worst games to go to. It was raining, windy.”
Warrior is rated as the No. 4 safety in the country. He is the son of former Tennessee standout and NFL cornerback Dale Carter.
