Having a move-in like former Woodland Hills (Calif.) Taft offensive lineman Darrion Weems move into a talented Texas high school is a story in itself. However, now that coaches know about him, the offer count will be the new storyline to follow throughout the summer.
The 6-foot-6, 285-pounder, Weems, is a pre-evaluation Rivals100 member who is now learning a new offense at Cedar Hill (Texas) High School. After leaving New Orleans for California, he finds himself at a new school for what looks to be the last time. Bring over two scholarship offers, Weems has now added his third from a school in the Lone Star state.
Coach Joey McGuire, who already has a loaded team of talent, certainly doesn't mind having another great player on his roster.
"Well, I'll tell you, he's special," McGuire said. "He's a great kid. Darrion is still learning our system, so he's raw in it right now. But, he's the type of guy that wants to learn and he's really a joy to coach."
Weems joins highly recruited offensive tackle John Jones in anchoring the Cedar Hill line.
"It's pretty amazing have Jones at left tackle and Darrion at right," McGuire said. "That's nice looking over there and seeing that."
The next offer came in from a Big 12 school – Baylor.
"Boston College and Oregon were offers that came over when he moved here," McGuire said. "Baylor just did though and his offer list from regional schools around here is about to explode.
"Texas A&M and some other schools have been by to watch him. It will get heavy here very shortly."
