Was it something I said?

I asked a boy out! And he said yes! But then he didn't respond when I tried to nail down the details. What should I do now?

I'm a 22 year old girl. A boy in a club I'm in has been flirting with me for a while, and he asked me to go to an event with him once. I gave him a non-answer back then because I was nervous. It still seemed like he liked me, though (moving in order to sit next to me, sitting close to me, making sure to come and talk to me if I was in another room; things like that).
I only started liking him recently, as I got to know him better through club-related things. I've been trying to flirt, but I feel really uncomfortable flirting when I'm in a group setting (I only ever see him in group settings). I read a bunch of advice given to other inexperienced people on AskMe, and asked him out over a text. I left the phone at home because I was nervous, and when I got back home, I saw that he'd texted back a "sure!" an hour earlier. I immediately wrote back to tell him I'd give him more details later on, and when I texted him this afternoon with said details, I got no response. The "details" message was along the lines of "would you want to do x on x date at x time?"
He participated in a club-related email thread this afternoon, so I know he didn't get hit by a car or whatever. What should I do? Should I just chalk this one up to experience and forget about it, or try calling him up tomorrow?
The only potentially complicating thing here is that I'm graduating school and moving back home in a few weeks. He's not; he's a year younger. I'm planning on getting a job and moving back to the area long-term, though, and he knows that.
