An experienced and productive defensive lineman just hit the market, and Oklahoma State coaches want him playing in Stillwater next year.

Colorado State defensive tackle Devin Phillips entered the transfer portal on Halloween. One week later, he had an offer from the Cowboys.

Phillips is a 6-foot-1, 305-pound defensive tackle. He started all 36 games he’s played in Fort Collins coming into 2022. Last season, he amassed 33 tackles, four tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks. He also logged a QB hurry. In just four games this year, Phillips had seven takedowns and 1.5 tackles for loss.

In a rebuilding year under new head coach Jay Norvell (of Oklahoma fame), the Rams are currently 2-7. Phillips has played under three head coaches over his five years at CSU. He announced his intention to transfer Oct. 13.

Hailing from Monroe, Louisiana, Phillips was a four-star prospect, according to ESPN and the No. 245th recruit in the 2018 class. 247 Sports ranked him as a three-star talent and the No. 61 defensive tackle in the nation. Phillips also held offers from the likes of Miami, TCU, and Texas Tech out of high school. He originally committed to play for the Horned Frogs as a junior, but instead followed his older brother who was an offensive lineman at CSU. His dad played at ULM.

OSU is just the latest school to come calling. Since he entered the portal, Phillips has tweeted out offers from Arkansas State, Old Dominion, Sam Houston State, Western Kentucky, Marshall and Florida Atlantic.

The Cowboys could definitely use a seasoned and productive starter like Phillips in the middle of their defensive line with Brendon Evers announcing his retirement from college football. Fellow Cowboy DTs Sione Asi and Samuela Tuihalamaka are both redshirt seniors.
