Phillips Adds Big East Offer
De Paul Catholic High School wide receiver Shakim Phillips is receiving a ton of interest right now from programs like Rutgers, Boston College, North Carolina, Purdue, Ohio State, Georgia, Notre Dame, Penn State, Virginia, West Virginia, Oregon, Florida and Vanderbilt and the 6-foot-2, 192-pound athlete has also picked up another offer to add to his portfolio. "Coach Jeff Hafley from Pittsburgh talked to me a while back and they offered me a scholarship to play there," Phillips stated. "Coach Hafley seemed like a really good guy and while I don't know a whole lot about Pittsburgh I have watched them for a long time now because Larry Fitzgerald is my favorite player. I really started watching them as much as possible when he was there and have just kept watching them since I guess. I'm planning on visiting there, but just don't have a date yet." "I went to Rutgers for junior day last weekend and learned a lot about them which has made me like them a lot more," Phillips explained. "They really stress family and understand that people make the difference in team chemistry which I really believe in. I just felt extremely comfortable at Rutgers." As a junior, Phillips caught 40 passes for 850 yards and 12 touchdowns.
