Phillips Hits The Road

Curt Phillips, quarterback from Kingsport-Sullivan South, (Tenn.), holds one scholarship offer, and several coaches are visiting this spring to take a closer look. Phillips has been on several unofficial visits, and he tells Scout.com about the trips.

"I still just have the one offer from Duke," Curt Phillips said. "Virginia Tech said it's just a formality. I was going up there the day the shooting occurred. One of their coaches came by the school today [Monday]. The Virginia Tech quarterback coach is planning to come the second week. Hopefully, I will receive an offer when he comes."

"Indiana said it's just a formality as well. Hopefully, they will offer me when they visit. I know several more schools plan to visit like Auburn, Alabama, Tennessee, Wake Forest, UCF and Wisconsin."

"We have been going to a few combines. We checked out Miami, UCF and South Florida. We got to watch all their practices. We made it over to Kentucky and Wake Forest to watch their practice."

"All the visits were really nice. I haven't been to a school yet that I would not enjoy going to. Georgia's campus seems really nice. Duke was nice. Wake Forest's coaching staff was really good. There really wasn't one school that stood out over the others."

When asked favorites Phillips replied, "I don't have any favorites. I am looking forward to seeing how everything goes with Wake Forest, Auburn and Georgia. Hopefully, I'll know where I am going in about three weeks. We'll see how spring practice plays out."

Phillips passed for 2,201 yards completing 138-of-217 with 25 touchdowns and only six interceptions during his junior season. He added 805 yards rushing with 14 touchdowns.

Phillips, 6-2, 213-pounds, is aware of his strengths and what he hopes to improve before his senior season.

"I think one of my biggest strengths is escaping the pocket. I may not have the strongest arm, but I feel like I can buy more time and escape out of the pocket," he said.

"I am working on making my reads as fast as possible. You can never be fast enough. I am working on getting the ball to the receivers faster when they come off their breaks."
