"I've been getting a lot of letters from UVa, Maryland, and Tech," Phillips said. "A few [schools] have invited me to their spring games. I went to Tech's spring game last year," Phillips noted.
Phillips spoke with VTI about each of his favorites. "Virginia - I like that they're coming up and getting better. They're really young and they have a really good campus and they are really good academically. On Virginia Tech, I've always wanted to go to Tech and it's been my favorite school forever. And their football program is really good too. Maryland, I heard they wanted at least two quarterbacks in this class so that'd be good."
This past season, Phillips took several other visits to the two in-state programs' campuses. "I went to 2-3 UVa football games last year with recruits and went to three Tech games," Phillips said.
Phillips told VTI that he expects to attend the spring game at Virginia Tech on April 19th. This summer, Phillips will attend the Nike camp in Blacksburg, the UNC team camp and an individual camp at Maryland. He also expects to attend either the Virginia Tech or Virginia individual camps.
