From Unsigned Seniors in January to Committed Athletes Today

In January, MileSplit followed three unsigned seniors, Houston Spring Westfield's Deanthony Nervis, Arlington Martin's Isaiah Teer, and Plano Prestonwood Christian's Dennis Phillips at the Texas A&M High School Classic. These sprinters had hopes for a successful outdoor season, but their seasons were halted by the coronavirus pandemic. Fortunately, that didn't have a negative impact on their recruiting prospects.

In the fall, Teer will attend the University of Mississippi, Nervis will be at Southern University and A&M College in Louisiana, and Phillips will begin his collegiate journey at Texas Christian University. These athletes spoke with Olivia Ekpone about how their recruiting journey unfolded even during the pandemic.
