"I didn't work out or anything, but I was able to use the time to just chill with the coaches a bit," said Cottrell. "I'm definitely interested in the program. I'm open to anyone at this point. It's a school close to home, I would get a great education, and definitely has coaches that would help me develop as a football player."
"The offensive line coach Adrian Klemm is my recruiting coach at SMU.," said Cottrell. "We have a really good relationship, I have known him for a little while...It's an honor to be recruited by him. It makes you feel good."
Currently the 73rd rated defensive end in the country, Cottrell stands at 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds.
"I don't have any plans for the next couple of weeks, but when I do get some, I will let you know."
