Lufkin, Texas linebacker Aaron Darks was scheduled to make his first official visit over the weekend.
“I was scheduled to go to Kansas last weekend for their game against Nebraska,” the 6-foot-1, 205-pound Darks said. “I didn’t want to go. I had other plans come up. They usually call me on Wednesday each week. I might try and re-schedule that visit when they call this week.”
Other than Kansas, the three-star rated Darks continues to hear from the same schools.

“Houston calls every once in a while,” he said. “I still get some stuff from Arkansas, Iowa and LSU.”
Darks previously had a scholarship offer from Houston and he has recently added another offer to his list.
“Kansas has offered,” Darks said. “They offered me a scholarship about the same time we set up that visit.”
Darks has helped lead Lufkin into the playoffs.
“We went 5-1 in district games,” he said. “We were the district champs. We’re into the playoffs now.”
Darks managed to get through the season despite a couple of minor injuries to his thighs.
“I had a couple of bruised thighs during the year,” he said. “I’m fine now, though. I finished up with 57 tackles on the year. The injuries slowed me down a little bit. But, that is an easy way to explain why my tackle numbers are so low.”
