Texas RB signee Derrian Brown hospitalized with undisclosed illness

Recommended Posts

Traditionally, UT has honored kids scholarships if they are injured after they commit, even if they must go on a medical. I don’t know if that require’s one year on a football scholarship, counting against the 25/85. 

The last I recall was the RB from Newton. 

I hate this for Derrian, but there is and should be, a reward for loyalty. 

Hook ‘em!

The latest post on the Caring Bridge site says Derrian started talking the day after he started walking again.

He is now in a private room and expects to start pt Tuesday or Thursday.

Sounds like he is continuing to improve. Please keep the prayers coming for Derrian.

I saw a report today that said Brown was walking and talking today. He's been moved from ICU to a regular room now. He should begin rehab in the next week. His progress has beaten expectations.

This is fabulous news. At this rate, he may very well play football again.
