This was an interesting Tweet.

Warren is still the top-rated junior college defensive back in the nation.
And, as far as anyone knows, he’s still committed to the University of Georgia.
But the Lackawanna College star is also six days away from the National Letter of Intent early signing period, which means nothing is official.
Penn State flipped a four-star wide receiver, Harrison Wallace, from Duke earlier this week, and maybe they’re working to do the same with Warren, who had Penn State and Maryland among his final three schools with Georgia in the spring.
It was a bit of a surprise in August when Warren verbally committed to Georgia, partially because he said in February that he wouldn’t commit anywhere he hadn’t visited. At that point, he had not visited Georgia, but he had been to Penn State.
So…who knows? Penn State sure could use an experienced hand in the secondary, and it’s possible he can play in the same secondary next year as Jaquan Brisker and former Lackawanna teammate Ji’Ayir Brown. What’s for sure is, it’s worth watching Nugget Warren over the next few days.
