San Diego State’s Warring is a Texan.

Kahale was the third MWC player taken, and the second of the third round.

Tight End Kahale Warring continued the big Friday for the Mountain West Conference, becoming the third out of four players selected when the Houston Texas picked him number 86 overall (3rd round).

Warring was seen by many scouts and talent evaluators as one of the more high-ceiling tight ends in this class. He only played one year of football in high school, walk-on and redshirted at San Diego State before finding an ever-growing on the field role for the Aztecs over the past three years. He came out early as a junior after producing 372 yards on 31 receptions and totaling 3 touchdowns.

That being said, it may point to Kahale having a limited role his first year or two (especially with Houston being stocked at that position) in hopes that he can continue developing and eventually become a featured tight-end every team is looking for these days. At 6’6” and 250 lbs, he is a huge target in the passing game. Coming from the run-heavy offense of San Diego State, effective blocking is a requirement.
