Each and every time Phenom Hoop Report gets to report or sees a commitment from a player we have seen over the years, it is always a fantastic day.  It is great to see players achieve their goal to play at the next level and it is such a great accomplishment for that player.

Here is the latest commitment.

Player: Julian Phillips
Class: 2022
Committed to: Tennessee

What Was Said by Phenom Hoops:

“Phillips was an absolute animal all weekend long, as the 6’8 Top-100 prospect gave all viewers a glimpse of his improved game.  Overall, Phillips has everything you want in a big-time prospect, and with his consistent outside threat (something that has improved a lot over the last year or so), Phillips is simply a matchup nightmare.  He gave everyone a view of his athleticism, versatility, offensive scoring power, and impact on the boards, blocking shots, and running the floor.  There is a reason why he is one of the top prospects in the country and it was easy to see why.”

“Honestly, I don’t know what else to say about Phillips’ game that hasn’t been already said.  He is a special talent and a reason why college coaches were lining the baseline to watch.  He checks off so many boxes as a prospect and with his work on his outside game, one can easily put him in an array of options on the floor and see him succeed. The balance of athleticism, skillset, versatility, handles, physicality and size, and IQ… Phillips is the whole package.”

“Julian Phillips had the entire state of South Carolina on notice this past season, and rightfully so. Being an athletic wing with length and true scoring prowess, it is no surprise that many consider Phillips the top wing in the entire state. Phillips has the confidence to take over a game, and I’m sure high-level coaches have been salivating for some time now.”

“Phillips is something special, there is no doubt about it.  You can see that he has continued to work and develop his overall feel, continuing to expand his game and feel, knocking down shots but operating on so many levels. Add that to his ability to defend multiple positions and be a presence everywhere on the court, there is a lot to love about this young man’s game.”
