Harrison Phillips had a huge junior year tallying 115 total tackles (80 unassisted and 35 assisted) including 35 tackles for loss, 11 sacks and 16 pass break ups. Phillips also had a big U.S. Army All-American Combine which got the ball rolling and today yielded offer No. 6.
Some of the best things about Harrison Phillips you have to project. The 6-foot-4 and 249-pounds plus standout from Omaha (Nebr.) Millard West could project to play a number of positions at the next level from all along the defensive line, tight end to possibly on the offensive line.
Phillips had a huge junior year playing defensive end for Millard West. Phillips also had a big performance at the U.S. Army All-American Combine particularly in the bench press when Phillips did the second most of the entire combine, 30 reps at 185-pounds.
Phillips seems to be waiting a little for a Nebraska offer, but built on his resume and combine performance already he has picked up six offers with the latest one coming today. The snowball effect for Phillips may just be weeks away with the evaluation period starting up on April 15th.
"I picked up an offer from Northern Illinois today," Phillips said. "That is offer number six. I also have offers from Kansas State, Ohio, North Dakota, South Dakota and South Dakota State."
Phillips is claiming a top five of Arizona State, Kansas State, Iowa, Iowa State and Nebraska. Phillips says that he has taken or will take junior day visits to all of the schools in his top five.
