No offer from Nebraska, but...

It was about as good of camp as Harrison Phillips could have hoped for short of picking up an offer. He was on his way back to Omaha when he updated about his camp performance in Lincoln today.

In-state standout Harrison Phillips was in Lincoln today trying to earn a Nebraska offer. The defensive lineman from Omaha (Nebr.) Millard West is getting looked at by Nebraska to possibly play a number of positions.

"It went about as good as it could have," Phillips said. "I didn't get an offer, but in talking with the coaches they still don't know which position I am best suited to play and they said that I really improved things with my play today."

Phillips says that he is tired after all of the looks he got a chance to give today at a number of positions. He worked out at two different positions on both lines and also got a chance to show what he could do as a tight end.

"I actually worked out as a defensive end, defensive tackle, guard, center and at tight end. I got a lot of reps in at a number of positions and I was really running all over the place trying to get as many looks as I could."

The fact that Phillips got a chance to workout as a center or a tight end is interesting. Phillips says that he's literally never played either of those two positions before. One of the reasons why Nebraska wanted to see him at tight end was one of his testing numbers earlier today.

"I have never played center or tight end before so that was a challenge. I had a 4.22-second agility run and that got the coaches thinking about me playing tight end."

Besides for his agility run Phillips says that he was unsure what a lot of his other test times were. He knows what he measured in at and that his weight was a little down after being sick recently.

"I am not sure what my 40-yard dash time was, I didn't hear it, but I came in a little lighter weight-wise than what I hoped. I was 6-foot-3.75 and 242 or 243-pounds."
