Lufkin’s Dhailon Phillips Picks Up McNeese State Offer
Lufkin junior receiver Dhailon Phillips picked up his third Division I offer Friday evening, and this one came from McNeese State.
Phillips (6-3, 195) also holds an FBS offer from Texas State and an additional FCS opportunity from Stephen F. Austin.
The Panthers' 2017 prospect tweeted news of the McNeese State offer.
McNeese State, located in Lake Charles, La., competes in the Southland Conference.
The Cowboys are coached by Lance Guidry, and are coming off a 10-1 season in 2015, which included a perfect run through the conference. The season ended with a 34-29 loss to Southland rival Sam Houston State in the second round of the FCS playoffs.
Phillips had a standout junior season for Lufkin, finishing with 43 catches for 675 yards and six touchdowns in 11 games. The Panthers went 7-4, advancing to the Class 5A Division I bi-district round of the playoffs.
Lufkin will be a member of District 12-6A this fall along with Beaumont West Brook, Conroe, Conroe Oak Ridge, Montgomery, The Woodlands, and The Woodlands College Park.
Phillips, like all 2017 recruits, can officially sign with the school of their choosing on Feb. 1, 2017.
