Alabama OL headed to Southern Miss
Birmingham (Ala.) Wenonah offensive lineman Eric Phillips has pulled the trigger on his college decision.
“I’m going to Southern Miss,” he said. “I committed to them after going on my visit last weekend. I just liked the atmosphere there more than any of the other schools that were looking at me. They made me feel like I was really wanted there, and I think it’s a place that I could wind up staying there even after college is over.”
Phillips (6-5, 245, 5.0) also had offers from UAB and Troy State, while drawing interest from Ole Miss and Mississippi State.
“I had a good relationship with the Southern Miss coaches,” he said. “They were real nice to me the whole time. And when I spent some time with the players on my visit, that kind of sealed my decision.”
