The ” Ohio Takeover” for the 2018 recruiting class of the Michigan State Football team continued its strength and growth this afternoon when Linebacker Edward Warinner committed to be a Spartan over his twitter page.
In his tweet Warinner said, ” Thank you to all of my coaches and teammates that have helped become the football player that I am today. Most importantly I want to thank my family for everything they have provided for me and shaping me into the person that I am. With all of this being said, I am officially committed to Michigan State University.”
Warinner’s commit did not come long after his scholarship offer which was relied on April 4th.
Warinner, a six-foot, two-inch 220 pound, 3-star Linebacker from Olentangy Liberty High School located in Powell, Ohio chose to become a Spartan and a member of the 2018 MSU Football Class over other college football elites that include Ohio State, Oklahoma, Pittsburgh, Wisconsin, and West Virginia. According to 247sports.com He also held other offers from Indiana, Northwestern, Boston College, Minnesota, and Kentucky among others.
According to 247sports.com, Warinner is rated as the 45th ranked player in Ohio and the 44th linebacker in the country.
Warinner’s connection to MSU goes deeper than just his commitment. Edward’s father, Ed Warinner, served as an assistant under former Michigan State Football coach George Perles in 1985 and 86.
Warinner becomes the fifth commit in Michigan State’s 2018 football recruiting class as he joins Trenton Gillison (TE), Xavier Henderson (ATH), Theo Day (QB), and Christian Jackson (CB) to make their debuts dawning the MSU green and white in 2018. According to SpartanTailgate, Michigan State’s 2018 class is rated 20th in the country and 7th in the Big Ten.
