A point guard that continues to not only rise up the rankings for several outlets but also for college coaches, 2021 6’2 Aisaiah Phillips from Wesleyan Christian could be looking to reclassify to the 2020 class.
“It’s an option my family and I are heavily considering,” Phillips said. “It is a blessing to be able to have the option but whether committing happens within the next few months or the next year, I’m going to be ready for the next level regardless.”
With a possible decision looming ahead, Phillips continues to put in the hard work, preparing for whatever may come his way. He continues to train and get in shape, hoping to get better each and every day during this downtime.
“I’ve still been working out and finding ways to get into the gym with my trainer,” he told Phenom Hoops. “A lot of two-a-days. I’m more focused on coming out of this time in the best shape and be the best player in all aspects…”
“I’ve been in contact with a lot of schools and they look forward to seeing me if and when we have the live period. They’ve been showing love and keeping in contact with me.”
The list of schools that have stayed in touch with Phillips continues to grow, as Cal Berkeley, UNCG, VMI, UNC-Asheville, Appalachian State, Georgia State, James Madison, NC Central, NC A&T, Murray State, Hampton, Winthrop, Clemson, Longwood, Belmont, and Charlotte have all been in some type of discussion with him.
“Just how they love my game,” Phillips said when asked what the schools are talking to him about. “How I make an impact on both ends and get my players around me better. Also, how I fit in their system. No one is standing out stronger than anyone else. The communication and effort are balanced; they all are upfront and honest with me about everything.”
With the season he had at Wesleyan, the list of interest could only continue to rise but with Phillips debating about reclassifying, some may kick their attention up a little more. No matter what though, Phillips is a guard that certainly can do damage with his ability to impact the game on both ends, as he showed that all season long at Wesleyan.
Player’s Game Description:
“I leave it all out on the court. I do whatever it takes to win. Rebounding, passing, scoring, and defense. I averaged two steals a game this year. I’m a playmaker; I do it all and make those around me better. I’ve definitely improved my vocal leading as well. I’ve been used to leading by example by leading vocally and putting good pressure on my team and coaches to get better each day is something that I’ve improved on and still look to keep improving in.” – Phillips
