"It's over. I'm a Cane. What I saw this weekend confirmed that I need to join the family. Florida State's nice and all, but I'm a Hurricane. No more visits."
Phillips, 6-0 and 185 pounds, is being recruited as a safety by the Canes and came away impressed with the visit this weekend.
"It was a real good visit," he said. "It just made me realize how tight those guys are. The unity there is great, something I want to be a part of someday. My host was Marcus Maxey but I was pretty much with everyone. Plus, there were a lot of recruits there."
The talented defensive back said he met with the coaches this weekend and discussed the possibility of playing right away.
"They said if I work hard enough I can go in there and play," he said. "That's what I'm trying to do. I don't really wanna just wait around. It's up to me."
Phillips says he's very excited about his future as a Hurricane.
"They got a great team coming back," he said. "All the guys are working real hard. I can't wait to become a part of that."
Phillips then had a message for Canes fans.
"It'll be fun watching me and Kenny (Phillips) in the same secondary," he said.
Phillips is a full academic qualifier.
