When Louisiana native Greg Monroe opted for Georgetown, it opened the door for Storm Warren of Monroe (La.) Richwood High School to sign with LSU. Now Warren is waiting to see who replaces John Brady as the head coach of LSU.
"No this doesn't necessarily change my situation," said Warren about the firing of Brady. "You can't place the status of your commitment on just the head coach. I committed to the school."
Warren did, however, leave a little wiggle room for himself.
"I'm pretty much still committed," he said. "I do have to wait and see who gets the job. I hope everything stays the same, though."
Warren, the No. 129 ranked prospect in the Rivals150, is having a strong senior year leading his squad to a regular season district championship. He is putting up near triple/double numbers and even registered a quadruple/double in a recent game.
Fellow class of 2008 signees Delwan Graham, a Rivals150 forward, and Dennis Harris, a 6-foot-10 big man, both told Rivals.com that they are still firmly committed to LSU regardless of the coaching change.
Graham, a high-energy forward from Dunwoody (Ga.) High School, said he was sold on the school as well as John Brady. The coaching change was difficult to swallow but remains strong with the Tigers.
Harris, a developing face up four man, said he was shocked by the news but, like Graham, remains steadfast with his plan on enrolling at LSU.
Storm Warren scouting report:
Perhaps a tad undersized as an interior player, Warren makes up for it with a big time motor and impressive athleticism. He is a terror running the floor and hitting the offensive boards. Limited in his perimeter skills, he does have the potential to be an effective player from 15-feet and in.
