Srong-Safety will be a Sunhshine State Battle
"With Doc Holiday on the Gator staff now, I now plan on visititing Florida on (1/7)," strong-safety Randy Phillips said. "I'm also going to visit Miami on the (1/21) and Florida State on (1/28)."
What does he like about each three of his favorites?
"Miami is the place to be," he said. "They put players into the NFL. Florida has a great atmosphere. Florida State has great tradition."
His father, Randy Phillips, Sr., was quite the athlete in his day.
"I played with Jessie Hester and we both have quite the following," Phillips Sr. said. "I dropped out of school early for a year so I could go see the world. When I went back, I wasn't eligible for football. I'm quite proud of my son."
Phillips Sr. grew up a Miami fan like his son.
"I always wanted to play for Miami," he said. "If Randy chooses a different school, I'll be fine with that as well. I followed Jessie Hester when he was at Florida State and in the NFL. He wore No.4 at Florida State."
Phillips told Scout.com what the biggest factor in his recruitment will be.
"It's got to be someplace that feels like home," he said.
The Palm Beach County standout also told Scout.com that he would like to play college football with his good friend in running back Antone Smith.
"We would like to play together in college," he said. "I think Antone will end up at Miami like me."
In only seven games played as a senior, he recorded four picks and 57 tackles as well as 710 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns.
Phillips has been selected to play in the Florida/California All-Star game which will be played in the Orange Bowl on January 2nd.
