Iowa State Offers Texas Athlete

Dallas Carter (TX) High School's Jarvis Phillips has just added another offer to his list.

"I just got an offer in the mail from Iowa State," he said. "I also have offers from Kansas, Colorado State, Louisiana Tech, Tulsa, Rice, and North Texas."

The 6-foot, 190-pound athlete plays quarterback for his high school team but knows he might be switching to a new position in college. "Iowa State is recruiting me as an athlete and I'm not really sure what position they would want me at," said Phillips. "It's not a problem because I just want to make plays and help the team win."

Jarvis told Cyclone Sports Report that Cyclone assistant coach Jay Boulware has been the one that is recruiting him for Iowa State. "We talk about once a week and I think he's really a nice guy," said Phillips. "He said he is coming down either next week or sometime soon. He told me the program is coming along and that he believes I could make an impact on their team."

Jarvis also likes the possibility of playing in the Big 12. "I feel the Big 12 and the SEC are the two best so conferences so I would really like to play in the Big 12," he said. "It would be a dream to play against the best competition each week."

Jarvis feels he won't be making a final decision for a while. "I'm hoping to take a visit to Iowa State and some of the other schools but that won't happen until after my season ends," he said. "I don't think I'll wait until signing day but I probably won't decide until after I'm done with all my visits."

Jarvis hopes to keep his season alive when he leads Dallas Carter High School against Richardson Pearce High School tonight in the second round of the Texas state playoffs.
