In-State 2015 WR Talks South Carolina Visit

Although he's only a sophomore Pelion High wide receiver Freddie Phillips is well traveled. One of the state's top prospects in the 2015 recruiting class Phillips was in Columbia recently to take in the Gamecocks win over Georgia a few weeks ago. We sat down with Phillips to talk about his time in Columbia with the Gamecocks.

Freddie Phillips Profile

"It was electric! The crowd was in it all game long! It was very loud!"a

Having traveled to so many games already in his young career we asked Phillips if there was any comparison to any other games he's taken in so far?

"None this year have come close to the atmosphere at that game. It reminded me of last year game when Clemson beat Auburn when they were undefeated."

What was Phillips' favorite part of his time in Columbia?

"I really enjoyed watching South Carolina's offense, the way they went to work on the Georgia defense was unreal!"

Phillips shared with us some other things he was able to experience while he was in Columbia.

"I spoke with Spurrier Sr. and Spurrier Jr. We talked about how my season was going so far and when I'll be back again."

The 2015 prospect has seen Clemson, North Carolina State, and South Carolina this season and we asked him if anybody has really emerged as an early leader for him.

"Nobody has really stepped out front, but if I had to say one it'd be North Carolina State."

In regards to his own play this season Phillips talked about how things have gone so far.

"We ran the ball heavy last game. So I didn't get many touches at receiver. I made up for that on defense though."

"I've got 30 tackles, 2 forced fumbles, and 3 pass break ups on defense. I have 21 catches for 354 yards and 3 rushes for 45 yards on offense." (Numbers were prior to Phillips' game last Friday.)

Asked if he's happy with how he's performed so far this year on the field he had this to say.

"The few times I have been called on I have step up, so I'm satisfied with my play."

College coaches have had quite a bit to say to the 2015 prospect too. Have they started to envision where they'd like to play Phillips on the next level?

"They like my size. Many coaches have complimented me on my size and build. They are not really specific with where I will play because I play so many different positions."

The well traveled Pelion standout isn't done taking visits either. He shared with us some upcoming visits that he's planning on making before season's end.

"I'm going to try and visit Georgia Tech. I'm also planning on re-visting Clemson, South Carolina, and if I can make it back to North Carolina State too."
