Almost every time the Oklahoma Sooners land top tier talent, its on the offensive side of the ball. With that said, the 2020 class – consisting of players like no. 1 (Perrion Winfrey) and no. 2 (Josh Ellison) DT, and top 10 SDE (Reggie Grimes) – is showing a shift to more balanced recruiting. Grinch is looking to continue that momentum into 2021 by pushing for the nations no. 1 JUCO CB, De’Jahn Warren.

De’Jahn Warren

This 6-0, 175 lbs 4-star currently plays at Lackawanna community college. In 2019, Warren earned JUCO all-America as a freshman with 35 tackles, and 5 interceptions on 11 games played (via NJCAA). His hudl film shows a solid balance between a tenacious pass rusher and smart WR coverage. It also shows he loves special teams and blocking FGs..

Warren holds offers from a number of schools including Georgia, OU, Tennessee, Penn State, and Maryland. While 247 Sports crystal ball predictions have him going to Penn State, A recent interview with SI shows he might be favoring OU.

Grinch’s Push

When asked about Oklahoma, Warren responded with, “I see myself playing for that team,” he admits. “I like their program. I like talking to their coaches.”

He went on about his respect for Coach Grinch. Adding, “I think he’s a really cool guy,” Warren says. “Great personality. We have good conversations on the phone. This is my first year playing corner, so I need a coach that can really develop me. So that’s something that I keep in mind.”

While nothing is set in stone I like to see Grinch pushing for top Juco players, and I think OU has a legitimate shot with De’ Jahn Warren.

Warren is set for an official visit to Norman on November 20th, and is reportedly committing on December 14th, 2020.
