The 2018 class is nearly full now after Jordan Phillips committed to Arkansas. The guard is listed anywhere between 6-foot-5 and 6-foot-7, and announced via twitter that he was picking the Hogs over schools like TCU, Virginia Tech, Fresno State, and Tulsa. Phillips is from the DFW area and is the fifth commit of the 2018 Class. He and his father visited earlier in September and committed just a couple of weeks later.
Both Rivals and 247Sports list Phllips as a three-star. Rivals has him in their top 150 prospects while 247 lists him just outside that mark.
The do everything guard averaged over 23 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists in summer ball. Scotty Thurman was the lead recruiter for Phillips and was a big part of the reason he came. Here are some highlights from his sophomore season, so he’s had a full year to build his game and frame in the time since these clips.
Phillips is the fifth in a class that right now looks to have six scholarships available. He is the fourth guard to commit in that group so the focus is likely to be on a post player with the impending departures of Trey Thompson and Dustin Thomas. It sounds that Phillips is still growing and could come to Fayetteville with the coaching staff having him as more of a small forward type of player. Reggie Chaney is another post player the Hogs are going after to keep an eye on. He could be the one to close out the 2018 class.
