NOTE: Kansas State has elected to advance players’ classification even though the 2020 season did not affect eligibility. Those who wish to take advantage of this extra year will be listed as a (“super”) senior again after their original eligibility would have been exhausted.

Talor Chadwick Warner (b. July 8, 2002) is a big, physical offensive lineman from Gardner-Edgerton High School who is majoring in sociology and projects as a scout teamer in 2021.

Warner redshirted and did not see any game action in 2020. He prepped with current K-State linebacker DaVonte Pritchard.

Warner played under head coach Ryan Cornelsen at Gardner-Edgerton and was named to the 247Sports Top 247 for the Class of 2020, checking in at No. 224. The organization also ranked him as the ninth-best offensive guard and second-best player in the state of Kansas.

Named a first-team all-state lineman as both a junior and senior by The Topeka Capital-Journal and The Wichita Eagle, Warner also was a first-team selection as a senior by the Kansas Football Coaches Association.

He was named a first-team All-Simone Team pick as one of the top prep players in the Kansas City area, as well as a 2018 first-team USA TODAY Sports ALL-USA Kansas performer.

Warner helped to lead the Blazers to an 8-2 record and a trip to the state playoffs in 2019, while they went 10-1 and advanced to the quarterfinals of the state playoffs in 2018.

He chose K-State over offers from Air Force, Akron, Ball State, Columbia, Eastern Illinois, Illinois State, North Dakota State, South Dakota State and Western Illinois, as well as interest from Iowa State. Warner’s chief recruiter was his current offensive line coach, Conor Riley.
