Has he been offered by Texas?
To my knowledge, no he does not. I know this is going to turn into a pissing contest between sites because one of these threads will pop up every few days, but I do not believe that he has an offer.

I'm not going to lie. I can piss pretty far
Just not into the wind.
If I find out from a credible source that he's got an offer I'll gladly report that news.
Johnson is apparently stating that he was offered by Mack on Sunday. I'm not sure what to believe there, as I know recruits have been known to misconstrue things.
In any event, he should have an offer.
This is like the Quandre Diggs recruitment, who ended up starting for Texas as a freshman by the way.
Ask Brenhamhorn, he would know.

Akina is waiting ! I really hope Darrion will be a horn as well.

TEXAS DB's HAD A GREAT WORKOUT THIS MORNING. CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT ONE. GETTING BETTER!!!
Clearly not an old guy.
It seems some off field/personal/classroom issues are the obstacle not the kid's talent. I credit the coaches for having high standards and asking recruits to meet them.
I'm sure some chemistry is involved.......
Yeah, so true. But one of these days his faucet will start leaking like the rest of us old guys.....no.....pressure !!!!
So sad, but very true.
Well he said he was offered in the story on OB
Don't know how you can get more credible than the kid himself
He reported an offer a few months ago and we do not believe he was offered at that time. Is it possible that he was offered on Sunday? Certainly. I'd just prefer to talk to Darrion myself or speak with source following the visit who can clarify if he does indeed have an offer.

Dang guys that's rough on the kid
Does that say a little about what you think of the kid??
The quote was he was offered when he met with Mack one on one
Which sounds like Mack's MO
I understand his confusion in the past with all the approved for offer crap out there from Mack
I don't think it's rough on the kid. I think it's Bobby's saying that he knows how to make sure a kid has a legit offer. If this site thought that was the case, it would report it. Until then, it won't.

Signatures are stupid. You should block them.
Regardless of how you state it
It's kinda calling the kid a liar
I understand fully wanting to hear it from the kid himself
But if the kid tells the story and is quoted as saying Mack offered him face to face then I believe it.
well kids lie.......especially about offers. Should we sugar coat it with he misunderstood?
I think he's likely been offered now. He wasn't back earlier this year.
I think the stuff in December was semantics. The kid is not familiar with the same semantics that all of us are. That's not calling the young man a liar.
I have seen much different language when the mods are essentially calling a kid a liar. They use other language when there is maybe confusion, semantics, etc.
Well said Bobby.
Thanks for the clarification
We have all complained about Texas use of approved for an offer and the confusion it causes
