6-foot-3 WR from Tallahassee gets UM offer

This 6-foot-3 wide receiver prospect from Tallahassee says the Canes are one of his newest offers. Read on to learn more about him as a prospect and to see what Miami's chances are early on.

Christian Philpott from North Florida Christian HS in Tallahassee told Scout that Miami offered him this past week.

Nike numbers from the spring:
33-inch vert
34-foot power toss

Playing on a team that finished the season 9-3, he finished with 33 catches for 720 yards and nine touchdowns. He only plays on offense (no defense or returning kicks). His yardage and touchdown totals led the team.

East Carolina, Wake Forest, and Indiana were some BCS schools who offered him before his junior season even started so they've been recruiting him the longest. He then added offers from schools like Penn State, Ole Miss, and NC State early in 2014.

Philpott told Scout back in March that Penn State and Indiana were his top two choices. He made spring visits to LSU, Georgia, and UCF but only the Knights offered him during those trips. He said a few weeks back that UCF is recruiting him the hardest.

Miami offered him within the last week but he doesn't know a whole lot about the school or the area yet. The Canes are really trying to recruit the Tallahassee area harder, and it seems like they want to offer kids at some of the premier schools (like NFC) in that area. Philpott is definitely one of their top prospects, and fits the mold of the big receivers that Al Golden and his offensive coaches seem to really want.
