Nebraska stops in to see Phillips

It might have crossed Harrison Phillips mind that Nebraska really wasn't interested in him because of no offer to this point. Today was a big day convincing him that they really are.

Harrison Phillips from Omaha (Nebr.) Millard West had a couple of big schools stop by to see him today. The 6-foot-4 and 250-pound lineman says that a third school, a PAC 12 school, has been coming on strong recently too.

"Nebraska was by to see me today," Phillips said. "Coach Barney Cotton was by to see me and that shows me that they really are interested in me since they came back to see me for a second time.

"UCLA was here too today. That was a new school that came to see me. They told my coach that they liked me and were going to go back and talk to their head coach about me. Stanford is a school that has really been really interested lately too."

Phillips is ready to go to work to compete for that offer from Nebraska. He will attend a one-day camp in Lincoln in a few weeks and says that he will work out at a couple of different positions, but both are on the defensive side of the football.

"I am going to camp at Nebraska on June 11th. I will just be there for the one day. I am going to work out for Nebraska at defensive end and defensive tackle. They really like me on defense.

"We haven't talked about offensive line at all, but I do long-snap for my school so some have considered me on the offensive side of the football a little bit."

Nebraska is just one of many visits or camps that Phillips has coming up or would like to get done this summer. All in all he's just ready to get out there to show that he's capable at competing at the highest collegiate levels this summer.

"I am just ready to go out there and show what I can do. My camp schedule is going to be busy, but it's a great opportunity for me to impress some more schools."
