how about the coach that would offer him
story is he's been muzzled by the higher ups that like to control the message. No more talking about your family the recruit on message boards. Not surprisingly he's been noticeably absent since JD1 ended.
True? I don't know.
Prior posts with BrenhamHorn on this very subject (real offer vs approved for offer) show that BH is well versed in the difference. As his family and ride to the Jr. Day, I would be amazed if Darrion did not know the difference.
Well you implied you believed someone else and not him, and now it appears he has it.
He has it now. He didn't have it then and he confirmed that to us last night at his basketball game.

I talked with him a couple of weeks ago and he said his grades was good. With that being said there wouldn't be any reason why Mack wouldn't offer him. Ijs
We've reported this correctly the entire way through.
Darrion told us last night that he received an offer on Sunday and not earlier in the process. He did indeed misconstrue the earlier "approved for an offer" vernacular.
There is nothing wrong with that in my eyes. It's only a big deal if you choose to make it so.
But I'll repeat. We've reported this correctly the entire way through.

Well then what's he waiting for? Come on #9!
All jokes aside... Any chance a story with some quotes from him on the visit is in the works?

Yep. Jeff talked to him after his bball game last night. He'll have details later this morning. He had to drive back home last night and didn't get in until late.
Well...great that he has been offered ! Kid should commit then !

Any chance his ranking is going to change?
If UT offered I would assume any off field issues have been resolved.
247 rankings aren't in lockstep with UT's feelings. Two separate things.
What is the knock on him then for his ranking?
In another thread Gerry H intimated it pertained to something off the field and not his on field performance if memory serves. I read a lot of Longhorn stuff so I could be ay off base as well.
By no means an expert but his film loooked much better than his current ranking so what would be his scouting report or thoughts to have him ranked where he is?

Yep, that's how it should be construed. Going further than that is not constructive IMO.
I'm not referring to how you've reported it in the past. I'm referring to how when it was reported after the JD that he had an offer, Jeff came on and was adamant that he didn't and was unlikely to get one because he was behind others. Your comments at that time were that he may have misconstrued the offer and I stated why I disagreed. Doesn't matter, just happy that he now has the offer.
Because the issue came up last time, Jeff was hesitant to do or say anything until we confirmed it from both sides of the fence. I don't think that caution was inappropriate.
Additionally, I followed Jeff with a comment that said we feel he has likely been offered.
As I've said, we had this right in December. We weren't going to jump the gun unless we were 100-percent sure. We've done that here.
You guys can probably fault us for a lot of things but Darrion Johnson's recruitment - and offer or no offer - we got right.
Fair enough. Thanks for the explanation.
