Darius White Talks Texas ($)

31

For the first time since his visit to Austin for the Kansas game, White spoke publicly on Tuesday about the trip to campus. White mentioned that he was hosted by Christian Scott, whom he called his "homeboy," while also saying that he spent time with Colt McCoy and Jordan Shipley. Speculation has surrounded the impact of his new stepfather, thought to be nudging his stepson towards Oklahoma. However, White said that both his stepfather and his mother "loved" the environment and felt comfortable. As for White, he "liked everything about the game" and the campus, sounding more positive about Texas than he has in, well, roughly a year. Part of it may have been that he was able to "smooth everything out" with Mack Brown, a relatively nebulous statement that could be about the infamous incident with Favors at the spring game or could mean that they simply talked about why both sides had fallen out of contact. The other big news is that White was not able to make his scheduled trip to Norman last weekend and has not yet re-scheduled it. If he does not return, it would give the Longhorns the last say in his recruitment, potentially a major advantage for Texas, though it's hard to say how much of an impact the most recent visit makes in the mind of a recruit -- it probably changes on a case-by-case basis. The bottom line, however, is that the Longhorns are right back in the thick of it even if White isn't yet set to make a decision, with the earliest date he mentioned being the Under Armour All-American game on January 2nd.
