The Longhorns wrapped up fall camp on Saturday with a scrimmage inside Darrel K. Royal Texas-Memorial Stadium, and one of the highlights of the day was freshman running back Chris Warren, according to sources.
Warren took full advantage of his opportunities with the 1st team, which arose due to starter Johnathan Gray being held out to rest after getting a bit banged up this week and backup D'Onta Foreman being out virtually all day due to a small injury.
Warren, the No. 6 RB in the country and No. 56 player overall, scored on about a 20-yard touchdown run up the middle against the first team.

The big back, who checks in at 6-foot-2 and 232 pounds, has gotten rave reviews from both head coach Charlie Strong and QB coach Shawn Watson this fall.
Warren is named after his father who spent 11 years in the NFL as a running back, mostly with Seattle. He rushed for 7,696 yards and 52 touchdowns over his career so the younger Warren definitely has his work cut out for him if he plans on one-upping his old man.
