ATLEE, Va. (WWBT) - Atlee quarterback Tyler Warren has verbally committed to Penn State, Raiders head coach Matt Gray told NBC12 on Wednesday.
Warren had initially planned to attend Virginia Tech and play quarterback, but decommitted from the Hokies in May. He will head to Happy Valley with the possibility of playing tight end. The Richmond Times Dispatch’s Eric Kolenich reported that Warren has drawn interest from big programs at tight end, including South Carolina and Michigan.
The rising senior led Atlee to an 7-4 season and back to the playoffs in 2018, after the Raiders had missed the postseason in each of the previous two years. He’s a dual-threat quarterback who has shined for Atlee with both his arm and his legs.
Warren also excels at basketball and baseball for the Raiders. He’s the second player from the area to commit to Penn State in the last two days, after Life Christian Academy’s Joe Johnson announced he would play for the Nittany Lions on Tuesday. Manchester’s Hakeem Beamon signed his National Letter of Intent to Penn State in December.
