2014 DB Looking at Texas Offer?

A 2014 cornerback made his way to Austin this past weekend and could find himself with a Texas offer soon.

2014 Brenham cornerback Darrion Johnson was in Austin Thursday to take in Texas's game against TCU.

"It was pretty cool," Johnson said. "I had a chance to talk to the players, and that was pretty great."

It wasn't Johnson's first trip up to Texas, as the defensive back also caught the West Virginia game. He also said it wouldn't be his last trip to the 40 Acres.

"On the next one, I'm going to just go up and have a tour around the school," Johnson said. "Texas is supposed to let me know when to come up, and then I'll be ready to go up there and see all that."

Johnson's primary recruiter is defensive ends coach Oscar Giles.

"I like him a lot," Johnson said. "He's cool.

"They said they were going to offer me when they come down here in December," Johnson said.

The defensive back hasn't been short of attention, receiving offers from Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and UTEP. The Sooners offered him before the start of his junior year.

"I don't really have a favorite," Johnson said. "I'm just going to take all my visits and see which one I like the most."

Johnson was part of a young Brenham squad that bowed out in the second round of the playoffs. But he had a nice season, establishing himself as one of the state's top defensive prospects for 2014.

"I play with a lot of heart," Johnson said. "I'm always around the ball, and I don't give up."
