Potomac (Md.) Georgetown Prep offensive guard Andrew Phillips has received calls from coaches across the country since they could start contacting him on September 1st. Who has the 6-foot-4, 290-pounder been in touch with?
"Maryland, Stanford, Northwestern, Boston College, North Carolina and some of the Ivy League schools like Dartmouth, Yale and Columbia have called," he said. "None of them really stood out, but I got a lot of respect for all of them calling me and that's a huge honor. They're mostly just keeping tabs and seeing if I want to set up a visit."
Has the three-star prospect considered officials yet?
"I haven't really thought about it," he said. "I'll probably take three or four visits and I'm looking at the schools at the top of my list for officials right now. It all depends who else offers and is interested, it'll be a while."
Phillips is planning to take an unofficial sometime this year to Maryland.
"It's tough because on our schedule we play a lot of Saturday games, but I'll probably at least take one there just to check out a game."
The No. 15 player in Maryland and the No. 33 offensive guard in the nation, along with his Georgetown Prep teammates have adjusted well to the new league.
"It's an exciting time for us in the new league and it's a great honor because it's only filled with good people and you can say nothing but good things about the teams we play," he said. "We're 2-0 so far this year we won last week 28-7 over Gonzaga. I did pretty well, but more importantly out team pulled together. Our team is playing great and it's satisfying to see our running backs hit the holes hard for huge gains."
This Friday Georgetown Prep faces some stiff competition in Good Counsel.
