Freddie Phillips will be one of the top prospects in the Southeast in 2015. The two-way standout was in Death Valley last Saturday when the Tigers hosted Ball State.
“It was real nice. I went down with my mom, dad and my friend Christian Taylor,” said Phillips.
The Pelion standout has been a frequent visitor to Death Valley.
“I went to three games last year. I was there for Auburn, Florida State and Troy,” said Phillips.
In June Freddie impressed the Clemson staff at the Dabo Swinney High School Football Camp.
“I camped at Clemson this summer. It was my first camp ever. The coaches called me Primetime,” said Phillips.
Freddie’s mom visited this summer and loves the Tigers. How does the sophomore like the Tigers?
“I love Clemson. I love the coaches, the atmosphere and the fans. Everybody is amazing,” said Phillips.
Freddie helped lead Pelion to a victory last Friday.
“We did pretty good. We won 56-21. Individually on offense they double teamed me for most of the game. On defense I shut down their best receiver. He had zero catches at the end of the night,” said Phillips.
Expect to see Freddie back int the Valley a number of times this fall.
“I will definitely be back for some games. I am not sure if I will make it this weekend,” said Phillips.
A number of schools are showing early interest.
“South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia Tech and LSU,” said Phillips.
