Four-star defensive end/outside linebacker Jaelan Phillips announced his top-five on Wednesday.
Phillips is also ready to transform his top-five to a top-one in just 24 hours. That’s right, the Redlands, CA product will announce his commitment Thursday at 12 p.m. PST.
Many believe the race is between Stanford and UCLA. Phillips did just take a visit to UCLA and has family ties to the Bruins.
Scout national recruiting analyst Greg Biggins’ analysis includes “Phillips projects best a pass rushing defensive end at the next level. He shows off a great first step, a nice burst off the edge, violent hands and the speed to run down a play from behind”.
I spoke to Phillips after he visited Stanford at a junior day event, where he also received an invite to The Opening Finals. Check out what he had to say about the Cardinal here.
