Phillips 2019 athlete Joseph Thompson receives Toledo offer

Phillips sophomore athlete Joseph Thompson has picked up a scholarship offer from Toledo, he announced via Twitter on Wednesday.

The offer is Thompson’s second, according to Scout. He earned an offer from Northern Illinois earlier this offseason.

Thompson played wide receiver and cornerback for the Wildcats as a sophomore. He will be a junior next season.

After long recruitment, Memphis provides Westinghouse DB Milan Netisingha II chance to show he belongs

All Milan Netisingha II wanted was an opportunity to prove himself.

The Westinghouse defensive back was an all-state selection in 2016. Netisingha was one of the Public League’s best players during his senior season, but he’s considered undersized at 5-foot-9 and about 163 pounds.

Therefore, his recruitment was slower than that of many all-state players.

Signing day came and went, and Netisingha remained unsigned. He was still searching for the school that would give him an opportunity to prove himself.

“After signing day, Feb. 1, I was very discouraged,” Netisingha said. “A lot of my friends were signing. I’m looking at it (on Twitter), retweeting it, congratulating them. There were even some players — not to come off as cocky — that I know I’m better than. To see them sign with schools — no matter what level — (was difficult). I didn’t have any offers — NAIA, Division III, nothing.”

Netisingha added: “I didn’t know where I was going to end up. I didn’t even know if I was going to play football.”

All of that uncertainty changed last week, however, when Netisingha accepted a spot as a preferred walk-on at Memphis. He announced his commitment via Twitter on Friday, March 3.
