DB Jalyn Phillips of Lawrenceville, GA had already announced a top five of Clemson, Alabama, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Southern Cal before arriving at Clemson for an unofficial visit Wednesday. He had Clemson in his top five without an offer from the Tigers. He got that offer Wednesday.
“The atmosphere there is incredible,” Phillips said earlier in the week. “I have good relationship with all the coaches. Coach Venables shows so much passion in running the defense that it gives me goosebumps. They are another program that stays in the winning column.”
Phillips has already taken an official visit to Oklahoma and he is planning to visit Tennessee and Alabama. He has set August 20th for his announcement.
