His time is now
The preseason hype for Oklahoma guard Willie Warren continued on Monday. This time, it was national publication SLAM Magazine featuring the Sooner sophomore with a lengthy feature article on their website.
Here is the opening of the article as written by SLAM writer Joey Whelan.

With the departure of Blake Griffin – the number one overall pick in last June’s NBA Draft – Warren suddenly finds himself as “the Man” in Norman, a role he coveted from the moment he set foot on campus a year ago as a McDonald’s All-American.
“If you’re able to take a major school that already has its name out there and be the face of that program, if you’re successful at that then you’re ready to take that step to the next level,” Warren says. “Blake did that last year by leading us to the Elite Eight and winning National Player of the Year, he showed he’s able to be the face of franchise, win and be a leader. I feel like that’s something I need to prove I’m able to do.”
