Phillips is a 6-foot, 178-pound receiver, highly regarded three-star commit who chose Virginia Tech over Virginia, Penn State, Connecticut and West Virginia.
He was recruited by Aaron Moorehead, the wide receiver coach at Virginia Tech.
Phillips has great hands, with an exceptional ability to catch the ball in traffic. His potential is very high and was he very close to achieving a four-star ranking after the summer he has had.
He made his visit to Blacksburg on July 17th after being offered on May 21st. The visit paid off in a big way for head coach Frank Beamer, who landed one of the best receivers in the class.
