Watch highlight videos of Fred Warner here
On 247sports.com, Warner is rated as a 3-star prospect. He is considered the 72nd best outside linebacker in the nation, and the 89th best player overall in the talent rich state of California.
The Mission Hill Grizzlies boasted a 10-3 record in their 2012 season, including a 4-0 record in the Avocado East League. Fred Warner was definitely a large contributor to the team’s success. Though there isn’t a lot of statistical information available for this high-schooler, taking a look at the film available makes it clear why there has been national interest in Warner.
Warner will have big shoes to fill as he prepares to transition into college ball in the future with his predecessors including the likes of Spencer Hadley, Jordan Pendleton, and, of course, Van Noy.
The outside linebacker himself is excited about committing to playing for BYU. Here's what he had to say on Twitter:

Fred Warner, the lightning linebacker, will be a great addition to BYU’s defense and will hopefully keep the legacy alive when he moves through the BYU pipeline in the next couple years.
