Phillips wants to return to Clemson

It's quite early in the recruiting process for Da'vante Phillips, but he's got a handful of big-time offers and plans to commit somewhere this summer.

The 2015 wide receiver has a few favorites and hopes to takes some visits this summer before making an early decision.

"I have a couple of offers from Florida teams – Florida State, Florida, Miami, South Florida – Alabama and Clemson," Da'vante Phillips said.

"It's exciting to have D1 teams recruiting me."

The sophomore wideout said he wants to commit to a program this summer. While he isn't officially naming favorites, he does have his eye on a few schools.

"Right now I'm looking into Miami and Florida," Phillips said.

The Miami native grew up a Hurricanes fan and knows plenty of people at the program. "I like (the Miami) facilities," he said.

He also visited Florida last summer and is teammates with new UF running back commitment, Dalvin Cook.

"I like their coaches, I like the campus and the school," he said.

"(The coaches) talk to me through my running back, Dalvin Cook."

Never rule out the Crimson Tide for a top recruit. Phillips is keeping his eye on Alabama, in addition to Miami and Florida.

"It's a good school, good program, championship team. They're in my top favorites right now," he said.

The 6-foot-1, 175-pound receiver said it's a few unofficial visits that stand between him and his planned summer decision. One of his biggest deciding factors will be the coaches at the program and how they recruit him.

"I want to go back to Florida, I want to go back to Clemson. I want to get offers from LSU and USC," he said.

"(I want) coaches and if they want me how they say they want me, if they show me love. (I want) coaches that treat you like family."

While it will be quite some time before Phillips takes that step to the next level, he knows he has the tools to make a difference when he gets there.

"I'm a physical blocker, I'm a physical player. I have a lot of strength," he said.
