Isaiah Phillips is starting to see the benefits from a deep run in the playoffs in December.

Phillips, who played his senior season as running back at Lufkin, announced Monday that he received an offer from the University of Louisiana at Monroe.

This came a couple of weeks after Phillips received his first Division I offer from Northwestern State.

Phillips finished the season as one of the tops backs in East Texas. He accumulated 1,972 yards and 27 touchdowns in the Panthers' 14 games. Lufkin finished 11-3 after falling to rival Longview in the regional final game.

ULM finished 4-8 this season. It competes in the NCAA FBS subdivision in the Sun Belt Conference.

Phillips, like all seniors, is eligible to sign with any team that offers him on Feb. 7.
