6-4, 225 pound tight end Philip Lutzenkirchen, the No. 7 tight end in the country according to Scout.com, has made his decision about his college destination.

"I am going to announce on the 16th," he told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "That is the day of our spring game. I'm not having a press conference. I will probably just call the coach after the game."

There was not a list of favorites that the Lassiter (Ga.) standout used to make his decision.

"I don't really have any finalists. I just made my decision in my head," he said.

Why did the top tight end decide on the team that will be his college destination?

"I have been there a couple of times. I feel comfortable with the staff and the players. I like the campus," replied Lutzenkirchen.

Lutzenkirchen also said he does not plan to join the trend of enrolling early.

"No, I am going to wait and enroll next summer," he said.

What type of player will the team that wins his commitment get?

"They will get a hard working player. Hopefully the hard work I do off the field will payoff on the field," replied Lutzenkirchen.

The summer camp plans are not clear, but football starts up again next week.

"I haven't decided if I will go to a camp this summer or not. We start spring practice on Monday," said Lutzenkirchen.

While not claiming favorites publicly, it is believed Auburn and Clemson are his top two schools, in order.

Lutzenkirchen finished his junior year with 46 receptions for 496 yards and seven touchdowns as a tight end while adding 48 tackles, an interception, and a blocked punt on defense.
