WR Freddie Phillips Profile
Venables recruits the Columbia area for Clemson. That's why he was in to check on Phillips, a sophomore wide receiver at Pelion.
"We were talking about my track. He's been keeping up with me track. We were talking about that and coming to camp this summer. There were a lot of topics," Phillips said in an interview with CUTigers on Wednesday.
Venables also told him, "to just keep on working and stay patient with them."
Clemson isn't the only school that's been by Pelion to see Phillips. South Carolina stopped through last Friday.
Several more are on the way.
"Florida, I know. N.C. State and UNC, those are the ones I know for sure, right now," Phillips said. "Some others might be coming by, like Georgia Tech."
This spring, Phillips visited Florida and N.C. State. He'll hit several camps this summer, including Clemson, South Carolina, Florida, Florida State, N.C. State and Alabama.
Phillips finished his sophomore season with 32 receptions for 436 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, he had 48 tackles, one interception, and six pass deflections.
As a freshman, Phillips had 27 catches 423 yards and four touchdowns. He recorded 41 tackles and one interception on defense.
He'll head to Landrum High School for the Upper State meet on Saturday. Phillips is competing in the 400-meter dash, 4x400, 4x100 and high-jump.
This spring, his best time in the 400 was 50 seconds. His top high-jump mark was 6-feet.
