Last week, Warner was in Provo on an official visit and had the chance to watch the BYU vs Boise State game. With his brother as his host, and a great defensive performance on the field, the decision to come to BYU was in the forefront of his mind. His dad has never been shy about letting it be know that he would love to see his sons play together, and BYU is the benefactor of that dream.
Today, Troy tweeted:
