This summer Pearland, Texas, 2014 linebacker Justin Phillips picked up his first offer when Oklahoma State stepped forward to extend a scholarship.
The offer came on the heels of a standout sophomore season and summer camp performance which caught the attention Cowboys' defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer. The Cowboys were not the only ones keeping a close eye on the 6-foot, 215-pound defender though, and recently he received his second BCS offer.
"Northwestern (offered) and I'm talking a little bit to Texas Tech," Phillips said.

The Wildcats' offer did not catch him by complete surprise since coaches have been in contact and he has noticed them around Pearland practices, but it was definitely a welcome addition to his offer list.
In addition to offering, Oklahoma State and Northwestern have made their interest known to Phillips who lists both as the schools showing the most interest.
As for Texas Tech, the Red Raiders also appear to be getting pretty serious.
"I talked to the defensive coordinator and he said they're going to be watching me and I think he said he would be coming down," Phillips said.
Texas A&M is also showing interest, and the Aggies are the only school he has been able to visit so far.
"I went to the A&M/LSU game," Phillips said. "It was great. I liked the atmosphere up there."
He does not have any other visits scheduled at this point, and is keeping an open mind when it comes to the recruiting process.
