that's a shame.
Good for him, wish it had worked out for him at Bama.
Good luck to DP!
"Theres No Substitute for Guts"
Man I hate that. Good luck to Darius
Good luck to him. I know the situation wasn't easy for him and I don't blame him one bit.
Hope it works well for him also...
I wish we could've kept him, but good luck to him. I think he has good potential.

He never felt comfortable with greyshirt offer. Initially looked like he was okay with it, but our contacts at Vigor said he was very confused this morning so this isn't a surprise.

Hate to lose him but the staff must have really liked the other defensive lineman, Good luck to Darius! RTR!
Good luck to him, he had options and he took one of them. He and Taylor will be in situations where they will see the field, best wishes to both.
Wish nothing but the best for DP...
"Character" is doing the right thing when nobody is looking.
I was looking forward to watch DP progress Thur the years. I think he will have a very good career at Arky and wish him well except when we play them.
Hope this does not hurt the relationship with Vigor and the surrounding schools. RTR
Shane- do we know when he was offered the greyshirt?
Best wishes to you young man. BE GREAT!!!
Sucks, I really liked Darius, thought he'd end up being a star for us at DE.
BTW, all of you people talking about hurt feelings, the guys reported that his HEAD COACH was 100% okay with the situation.
That seems to be the case. He was ok with it but Arkansas gave him something to think about. It's hard to stay home for a semester when your classmates are leaving. I'm happy for him
Question is...how long did he know about the grayshirt offer? If it was only 2 weeks, like it has been rumored, then shame on our staff. That is wrong on so many levels and the bad PR will be well deserved. Grayshirting is not a bad practice and an offer to play ball is still an offer. No one doubts that. Communication and timing is the problem and that starts with Saban. If a kid knows about the grayshirt possibilty up front and he wants to roll the dice, then that is a personal decision. You can't drop this on a kid 2-4 weeks before signing day. If I'm the kid's high school coach, I'm royally pissed right now. Bama can't afford to continue this practice.
I hate to hear that..wish him all the best up there.
Hate it for him, but great pickup for Arky, wish him the best.
