At this time, there isn’t any further information available publicly about Brown’s medical situation, but he did send out the following tweet on Wednesday:

A 5’11, 188-pounder, Brown signed with the Longhorns in December following a breakout senior season, his first as a full-time starter. A consensus four-star prospect ranked as the No. 220 player nationally, the No. 12 running back, and the No. 23 player in Georgia, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings, Brown is the only running back in the 2019 Texas recruiting class.

Update (Friday (10:00 p.m. Central): In light of the GoFundMe campaign for Derrian Brown that is out there now, I reached out to Texas compliance to see if there are ways for Longhorns fans to donate to the Brown family for medical expenses and was told that compliance is working with the NCAA on that. So stay tuned there.
