Phillips, a 6-foot-1, 181-pound prospect, only had one other FBS scholarship offer, coming from Iowa State. He received an offer from the Boilermakers on Thursday morning.
Upon receiving the scholarship offer, Phillips tweeted: "Rejoicing over here!!!!!! Purdue University just offered me!!! #26!! Oh my gosh!!!!! Thank you jesus!!!"
Phillips is the Boilermakers' second verbal commitment for the 2014 class, joining three-star receiver Trae Hart.
While Phillips appears locked in with Purdue, his fellow 2014 commit, Hart, isn't making his pledge seem so strong.
"I'm a Purdue commit, that's where I'm at," said Hart to Scout.com on Thursday. "I would listen if other schools came in and talked to me. I would listen to them. But I'm at Purdue right now."
