Wyoming Offers Harrison Phillips From Omaha, NE (Millard West HS)

Bruce Thorson-US PRESSWIRE

Cowboys offer a top prospect in the heart of Cornhusker territory.

Wyoming has tended to skip past Nebraska when it comes to recruiting and focused more on the Great Lakes region. Even though Nebraska is an easterly neighbor of Wyoming the majority of the population lives on opposite side of the state. Any top talent that is produced in-state in usually gobbled up easily by the Cornhuskers who are the premier sporting event in the state.

That didn't stop the Cowboys from trying to land one of the top prospects from the Cornhusker State.

Harrison Phillips is a three star DE that stands 6'3 and weighs 250lbs. Wyoming is one of just eighteen schools to already offer Harrison. A large number of those offers have come from Ivy League and other FCS schools. So he must have no problems in the classroom. There are also some offers from strong programs like Kansas State, Northern Illinois and Ohio. He also has the attention of coaches from Stanford, Iowa, Nebraska and UCLA.

According to his Youtube highlight video Harrison had 81 solo tackles, 41 assisted, 35 tackles for loss, 11 sacks, 16 tipped passes, 5 forced fumbles in 11 games last year. Harrison is also a big talent on the mat and is a two time wrestling state champion.


It is good to see Wyoming looking for talent closer to home. There will certainly be plenty of competition for Phillip's services. He is likely to pick up another few offers as prepares for his senior year. Hope the Cowboys will be able to convince him that Laramie is the best place for him to excel.
