Cottrell had a really strong junior season finishing with 80 tackles, 58 unassisted. He also had five sacks, an interception, and a fumble recovery.
He has attracted plenty of attention and gave us a rundown of his Junior Day trips so far and where he is heading.
"Before today at Oklahoma State we went to Mississippi State, Syracuse, and Kansas," said Cottrell. "Then today we were here and coming up I'm going to USC (Southern Cal) for Junior Day.
"I'm just looking for a good school, a winning program, and a place where I can fit in and fell comfortable for the next four or five years."
Oklahoma State has a member of the 2011 class from Plano West. Offensive lineman Travis Cross, who is already enrolled and in school for the spring semester, was a teammate with Cottrell the last two seasons at West.
