    I have a friend that is in close on the Darrell Scott situation & he is telling me that DS has chosen Texas, but MOST of his family is NOT happy with his choice.

    He skipped school today to talk to his family some more about what would be best for him. The big draw for Colorado right now is that his uncle plays for them & the campus is A LOT closer than UT.

    Also heard from my brother (obsessive Michigan fan) that Terrelle Pryor will be waiting until National Signing Day for BASKETBALL to announce his decision. He is allowed to do this because some of the schools that are chasing him are offering to let him be a two-sport athlete, especially Oregon.

    Guess we will just have to wait and see what happens tomorrow.

    Pryor is all but guaranteed OSU. Oregon is out and it is really down to Michigan and OSU.

    Mack Brown works his magic yet again. Darrell Scott goes to Texas.

    I absolutely love the Boulder campus and its a Top 10 campus no doubt but how can you compete with The University Of Texas? We have the city, the women, the facilities, the campus, the nightlife, the summerlife (Lake Travis FTW), the tradition, National Championship history, and a chance to start as a freshman. I just hope he doesnt go Adrian Peterson on us and punk out at the last moment like AP did.....

    I wouldnt be mad at Scott if he chose Colorado. It sounds like his family is all over him to go there & that has to be a lot of pressure.

    Plus, he has never really given us the impression that we were definitely his choice, just the front-runner.

    Julio Jones (#1 WR) is down to Alabama or Florida State.

    He's going to be a Nole. I can feel it.

    Hopefully thats not just wishful thinking on your part.

    He has been a Bama lean all year long. Good luck.

    As a UT fan, I would love to see you guys snatch Jones from Alabama after all the Appelwhite drama.

    punkout may have been a poor choice of words....was referring to APs 'punkout' more than anything else

    You beat me to it, but here it is anyway.

    Darrell Scott - RB - Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure
    The nation's No. 1 running back recruit has narrowed his choices to Texas and Colorado, and, according to sources, it appears that the Buffs have the inside track as of Tuesday morning. Will announce at 12:50 p.m. ET on Wednesday at the ESPN Zone in Anaheim.

    If any of you have rivals subscription, check out Nigel Bradham and his videos. 5 star linebacker from Wakulla county, right by Tallahassee. He is going to FSU. Rediculous talent this guy has. They are saying he could be the next Derrick Brooks. 6-2 230lbs already. Very fast. #1 OLB in the nation, #4 best prospect in Florida, #16 prospect in the nation. He's also rated #3 in best instincts of any LB.

    Regarding Texas. D.J Monroe is easily the best recruit that UT has. He was damn good in the Army All-American bowl. He is rated as the fastest corner, apparently he runs a 4.4. 3rd best athlete at the corner position, 5th best cornerback in the nation, 6th best overall prospect in Texas. He's also the #48 rated prospect in the nation according to Rivals. He's undersized at 5-9 and only 165 pounds, but mark my words, this guy will be a great college football player. Another guy I thought was pretty darn good was Dravannti Johnson. He's listed as a middle linebacker, but apparently he played alot of DE and OLB in high school. Looking at his videos, he seems like a brick wall. A couple tackles he striaght up picks the RB up and slams him down. Also he apparently runs a 4.6, which probably helped him out when he also played DE in high school.

    Personally, I think that Aaron Williams is UT's best recruit. It's a travesty that Rivals hasnt given him a 5th star.

    #36 player in the nation
    #1 Safety in the class
    #4 player in Texas

    Safety Rankings:
    Ball Skills - 1st
    Coverage Skills - 1st
    Fastest - 2nd

    How about, "Texas easily has a lot of great recruits"?

    Texas doesn't have any blue chips yet (per Rivals) but they have a deep, loaded class this year.

    At the last minute, family is more important than just about everything else. Scott goes to Colorado.

    BOOOOOO!!!!

    Maybe his family should let him make his own decision.

    If he chooses Colorado, thats fine.

    But if they try to force him to go to Colorado, I'm not okay with that.

    The kid probably knows which situation will be better for him more than anyone else does.
