For Phillips, it was his first visit to Clemson of the 2013 season.

"They did really good. The offense played sharp," he told CUTigers. "Didn't see too much of Tajh [Boyd] and Sammy [Watkins]. But the rest of them, Martavis [Bryant], Charone [Peake], all of them did really good, and Jay Jay [McCullough] at tight end."

While on campus, he spoke with defensive coordinator Brent Venables, who serves as Phillips' primary recruiter to Clemson, and wide receivers coach Jeff Scott.

"They're going to keep up with me, watch me play and everything. [They want me] to send them some film," Phillips said.

In addition to the Clemson trip, Phillips has also been to Georgia Tech this fall. He was in Atlanta for the Yellow Jackets' 70-0 blowout win against Elon.

"It was good. That was my first-time being on their campus, seeing their facilities. It was nice," he said.

Phillips will visit N.C. State this weekend for the Central Michigan game.

At Pelion, Phillips is playing both ways. He's a safety on defense and working at running back on the offensive side of the ball and scored a pair of rushing touchdowns.

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 Top Stories
