A couple of days ago I was able to catch up with 4 star cornerback Clark Phillips III from La Habra, CA (the same high school as Greg Gaines) to talk about his Uw offer and interest in UW, and his overall recruitment. Listed at 5’10 and around 180 pounds Phillips has offers from across the country including Alabama, USC, Oregon, LSU, and Ohio State. Here is what he had to say:
Are you planning to visit any schools this spring and if so which schools:
Yesssirrrr most of the schools on top 12 (which he released earlier this month).

When did you get your offer from UW and who was it that offered you?
Coach Lake offered me and I am not sure of the exact date.
Who is recruiting you for UW?
The entire staff but mostly coach Lake.
What do you think about UW so far in your recruitment?
Love UW, they have a great style of play and coaching! They (the coaches) are great dudes.
What are you looking for in a school when you commit to it?
I am looking for the overall best fit for me.
When are you planning on committing to a school?
Not sure yet, I want to take all of my visits and my official visits first.
Phillips is a bigtime player who is rated by 247 sports as the 59th best player and 4th best cornerback in the nation. Phillips is high on the Huskies and will get a visit out of him this spring. Here are some of his junior highlights:
That is all for now and as always follow me @asieverkropp.
