Longtime Alabama commit explains why he’s looking around 

By Michael Carvell

Dallas Warmack committed to Alabama last summer but it hasn’t stopped the 4-star offensive lineman from looking around.

The 6-foot-2, 300-pounder from Mays High School is the younger brother of former Alabama All-SEC offensive lineman Chance Warmack, who played at Westlake High School.

The younger Warmack recently made an unofficial visit to Alabama’s archrival, Auburn. He also plans to check out Alabama, Auburn and UGA later this month. (He will be at Saturday’s G-Day scrimmage with his high school teammate, LB Natrez Patrick)

  • Why is Warmack looking around?
  • What is the status of his Alabama commitment?
  • What would another school have to do to change his mind?
  • How does he describe his relationship with Nick Saban?

Warmack, who has earned a spot in this summer’s Nike Opening in Oregon, talks about all of that and more in the above video.

Warmack observed Sunday’s MVP camp at Lovejoy High School.

WTH no comments allowed on the Adonis Thomas of Central Gwinnett visit to BAMA?

Poor kid looked pretty uncomfortable.  I bet he feels like he got bushwhacked.  Unfortunately the heat is only going to get turned up from here on.  I'd be surprised if he flips.

Can't blame the kid for using the opportunity to learn more about other programs that are calling and sending him letters.  He'll follow in his brother's steps.  He'll choose to win and develop over being underutilized and and watching his potential not being extracted.  I think we all know which program produces better linemen.

Stop the whining. The young man will make his decision, and for a lot of these players it comes down to feel. The justification (or rationalization) comes later. He has great opportunities, and whatever he picks, I hope it works out well for him. I'm a UGA fan but let's keep things in perspective. It's his life and I am just a fan.

sounds like he doesn't want to earn a spot. if that's he case then we don't want him at bama. aubum tells  him he will start early and hasn't even had one practice with them. what if he goes there and doesn't. that would make them liars. not good recruiting

The truth be known, Ga has never really got excited about lineman in general.

There just some big guys to block for the real football players such as the QB, RB and

receivers. It is no coincidence that great home grown Ga lineman have ended up starring at Alabama.

They usually go from Bama to the NFL.

At Bama, we believe the game is won in the trenches.

A lot of times, we find the best players we have are on the line. 

Such as James Carpenter who plays for the Seahawks.

He is from Augusta.

he is not going to bama unless parents/brother step in.  i said about  a month ago this was gonna happen.  we will see.  dallas is a great kid.  all you supposedly grown men talking bad about him need to get a freaking life.  what about Tobias getting best underclassmen at the mvp camp another teammate of dallas and Trez.  middle backer getting that award is impressive.  mays is loaded and you should see their o line.  tobias, dallas, and natetrez all train together.  maybe natetrez can talk tobias into going to uga.  natetrez  is a monster and i cant wait to watch him bt the hedges.

Terry Godwin visted Bama for our 1st scrimmage...

-Visited with his parents and younger sister
-Wants to play baseball and CNS said that he was fine with that.
-Coach Napier's (WRs coach) brother is the OC at Callaway HS.
-Plans on going to G day and A day.

Dallas Warmack started hedging his bets even before he committed, and then we signed 7 offensive linemen in 2014 and have him and two others already for next year. Soon, Nick will need an answer: In or out? The kid's life, the kid's choice. Alabama will be fine either way.

Probably feel as though he can not live up to BIG BROTHER'S SHOES who is in the NFL.



He wants a softie schedule and he knows he will not be given the job because his Brother went there.

probably hearing the " true" stories of Coach Saban. from friends there. What I mean is in Nick's world, " you are always expendable".

@POAD2013  Go ahead and comment. It's never made a difference with you what the article was about. It's always the same old stuff with you. Your main theme is these recruits not considering Ga Tech don't deserve to be admitted.

Regardless of who one pulls for young Mr. Womack will soon find out that Mr. Saban  D O E S N 'T

play games when it gets down to to business and F O O T B  A L L   is Mr. Saban's business.


Saban will just draw a line through Mr. Womack's name and yell "N E X T "!!!!

Sounds like a L E S S E R     E D U C A T ED    T-Brown(aka Toma$$  Brown)  maybe on the level of T-Brown Jr(aka Delusionaldog) but slightly higher than   T-Brown  III(aka Columbusdawg)

@mike69


You may be correct!!!!!  He could be thinking that he should be allowed to "slide" on his brother's reputation rather than having get down and dirty with the other recruits.

Gus has promised him the starting center spot from day 1 at fAU so that is something to look at no doubt. Nick told Julio Bama would win with him or without him and Warmack is no Julio. Bama is about done at OL with maybe one or two at the most. Cotton is outstanding and the Pettibone kid is pretty good as is Dallas. The kids want to play and play now and perfers a clear path to playing and that will not happen at Bama.

@96JB

Yep - that's right.  His brother spent 4 years playing for Saban and obviously lied to him - why else would he have committed to them.  Then, after his brother had left, he got the "true story" from friends at Alabama.

@KeepOnSmilingWetWillie  


Perfectly reasonable position for a young man to take. But Saban will need a straight answer before summer, I would think. 

KeepOnSmilingWetWillie

and his brother made 14 million on his 4 years and 3 NC rings. Then again you would know anything about NC rings.

@KeepOnSmilingWetWillie Don't let RangeRover (trying to compensate) get at you.  The guy is a loser and has been bashed into the ground verbally with logic and facts by me a few times.  His garbage isn't worth your time.  He's the typical Georgia fan, loose affiliation only by concrete sidewalks.

No D/A Chance signed for 14 million...again you UGA fans never put any OL in the 1st round so you wouldn't understand that. Keep running that mouth. You have no trophies to back it though! Range Rover....what a joke...I bet you're impressed though.
