"This is all a huge misunderstanding," the source said. "This was something that wasn't that big of a deal and got blown way out of proportion." The three current players, the source said, were quickly released after being taken into custody. The source added that no written tickets were at any point issued to the three current players and none are expected to be issued. Additionally, the source added that no formal charges are expected to be filed. "Again, it was just a big misunderstanding," the source said. "Things should have never gotten to the point that they did."

The latest on the Monday-morning arrests of Alex Okafor, Kenny Vaccaro, and Barrett Matthews from Hookem.com ($). Again, if charges aren't filed, there probably won't be any need for suspensions and we can all just move along on down the road, which still remains the smart response to an order to do so by a police officer.

Coach Wyatt, he was trying to tell me that he was basically wrong and that he sees something in me, and coach Chambers was trying to see if I was still interested. I told them I was still interested."

-- West Mesquite wide receiver Eldridge Massington, who was in communication with the Texas staff ($) on Wednesday night. Does the renewal of interest mean an offer will be forthcoming? Hard to say, but the odds look better today than they did on Wednesday afternoon.

My family really wants to go down there to Austin and check everything out with me. They want to see what Texas is about, too. Like I said, I’m going to call and set that up. I’m going to try and set that visit up for sometime soon, like over the next few weeks so we can visit, then we’ll go from there."

2013 Alief Taylor defensive end Torrodney Prevot on his visit plans. In the conversation with Hookem.com ($), Prevot named LSU, Texas, and Texas A&M as his leaders and said that he will make a decision soon after visiting Austin and then College Station for the Aggie spring game.

To put the line Nunez recruited in perspective [the 2005 group], the recruiting classes [Mac] McWhorter was directly responsible for (2004-2011) have yet to produce an NFL draft pick."

-- Hookem.com's Jeff Howe, discussing the recruiting success ($) of maligned former offensive line coach Tim Nunez in comparison to his replacement, the retired Mac McWhorter, whose legacy at Texas seems to get more and more negative by the day.

I take a lot of pride in my blocking. I’m a big receiver, and blocking has to be a big part of my game. If you block for your teammates, it can set up big plays. I also like to get after the DBs just to let ‘em know that I’ll be there all night and they better be ready. I love contact and love knocking people down."

--2013 Texas commit Jake Oliver to ESPN on the most underrated aspect of his game.

I've broken every finger, and all my nails are deformed from getting stepped on in the pile or getting them jacked up in an opponent's pads. I have no idea where I'll put my wedding ring. That's just the way it goes. I wouldn't call a broken finger an injury -- they come with the territory."

-- 2013 Texas commit Jake Raulerson, further solidifying his bad-a** credentials.

People talk about being a mid-major, but it's unbelievable the reception we get when we talk to California high schools and California junior colleges. It was better here, how we've been received, than it was when we got to Texas A&M. That's not B.S. When we got to A&M, high school coaches wanted to give us their I-AA players. Here it's been the opposite. Recruiting for me has been one of the most encouraging things for me as we go into spring.

-- Former Texas A&M linebackers coach Nick Toth on recruiting at Fresno State versus Texas A&M. Toth left for Fresno State when former Aggie defensive coordinator Tim DeRuyter took the job.

Darius James NOT attending OU JD Saturday James and Hughes were planning to attend Oklahoma's Junior Day on Saturday but chose not to this week. James is wearing a cast on his right foot after suffering a broken bone last week when he stepped in a hole on the Harker Heights practice field. His recovery should not affect James' involvement in spring football practices. (From Killeen Daily Herald)

This summer, the only place I went to was Texas. And I thought, 'I like this place a lot, I think I want to go here.' My mom said, 'I think you should just wait it out a little and go see some other places before you make a decision like that.' I did, and I'm glad I listened to her, because I liked the other places I went to."

Texas target Tyrone Swoopes on the appeal of coming to Austin ($) to play college football, as told to ESPN HornNation's Max Olson.
