Chaffey College basketball standout Tyler Warren is headed to San Diego State.
Panthers coach Jeff Klein says the 6-foot-7 post player out of Silverado High School saw limited time last year and he grey-shirted the previous year so he will have three years of eligibility remaining.
“He’s got a lot of raw talent,” Klein said. “He can really jump, he works hard and is a very coachable kid so he has a lot of upside.”
Klein said the player had a lot of offers from smaller schools where he likely could have played right away but he wanted to go to a bigger school and got a good combined academic-athletic financial aid package.
