Maybe Mack and Wyatt like the kid and think he has the ability / football smarts to be a player. Correct me if i'm wrong, but our highly touted team of defensive players that were mostly high level recruits got consistently lit up by more than a few guys that would have received the same response by UT fans as Griffin Gilbert is getting now. Personally, I will trust in Mack and hold back on judging the kid before he gets a chance. Not every player in America has to be a "top 100" kid to turn into a good player.
I'd be happy if Griffin Gilbert was full offered. I think that he could help out Texas in the Red-Zone Offense from day 1.
Guys, we stand by our sources on this.

Pretty obvious who was right covering this one from the start today.

Thanks for the down votes. Apparently having some faith in Mack and allowing a kid a chance to prove himself are bad ideas. I don't mind anyone disagreeing with me, but I think the down votes are a bit harsh. Sorry guys, great football teams are not made of 100% superstars. Griffin Gilbert is a hard working young man with talent. Or, maybe Gary Patterson can't recognize talent?
