The place to talk about the Texas Longhorns
The place for off topic discussion on Hookem
You have no favorite boards.
I posted this on the update thread but I am posting it as a separate thread as well. I just wanted to clear things up with his offer/non-offer status.
We very well could have made a mistake on Townsend. He could be offered today but I obviously misinterpreted his mom's texts to me as Cameron himself texted both Blake and me later that he had not offered.
Texas was very high on him but - and this is purely conjecture on my part due to the timing of everything - they might be gun-shy due to his lack of size. We will obviously know one way or the other once the sophomore day is over.
Sorry for us jumping the gun on that one. We were not rushing to "scoop" anyone or anything like that. It was simply a case of conflicting information that got a little more clarity after we posted it. Sorry about that.
Update: Townsend just talked to Manny Diaz and is expecting an offer by the end of the day. He said Mack Brown is going to offer before he leaves

It happens. No harm done IMO. You're a class act for posting this. We appreciate all you do for 247 Brian keep up the good work.
I'll back Perroni all day. He made the right call based on the info he had.
I read the exact text exchange. I construed it as an offer myself.
I still think he could be offered today.
