Warren was a true freshman walk-on last season, but he still managed to win Scout Team Player of the Week three times. Here’s what I said about him in last year’s countdown:

I think Michigan got a bit of a steal here with Warren, who has some good athleticism and a live arm. Of course, he’s in the same class as 5-star recruit J.J. McCarthy, but down the road, Warren could be a guy who factors into the depth chart if he continues to build his body and work on his mechanics (which can be inconsistent).

In the spring game back in April, Warren looked like the third best quarterback on the roster – better than former Texas Tech starter Alan Bowman and better than freshman 3-star Alex Orji. Warren completed 12/23 passes for 175 yards and looked like a scholarship quarterback. Will he retain that #3 role during the season? It remains to be seen. What we do know is that both Cade McNamara and J.J. McCarthy will play, and it’s likely that if something happened to either one, the other guy would just be the full-time quarterback. So it would take a couple injuries for Warren to see the field much, but I do think he should be the #3 quarterback.

Prediction: Backup quarterback

Warren was hurt by the COVID situation. Originally slated to graduate in 2020 from Los Angeles (CA) Loyola, he took a prep year and transferred to Suffield Academy, which has sent safety Brad Hawkins and defensive end Kechaun Bennett to Michigan in recent years. Connecticut then did not play football in the fall – though nor did California. So that extra prep year didn’t do much for him when it comes to QB development, exposure, etc.

I think Michigan got a bit of a steal here with Warren, who has some good athleticism and a live arm. Of course, he’s in the same class as 5-star recruit J.J. McCarthy, but down the road, Warren could be a guy who factors into the depth chart if he continues to build his body and work on his mechanics (which can be inconsistent). Either way, Warren is headed for a redshirt.

Prediction: Redshirt
