Recruiting: Memphis offers Sergio Phillips


The Memphis Tigers have been hitting the recruiting trail hard this week, and the school recently offered DeSoto, Texas guard Sergio Phillips. It is the third offer for Phillips in his recruitment, and he has the California Golden Bears listed as one of his college choices.

Sergio Phillips received offers from New Mexico State and San Diego State at the start of his recruitment, and he has interest in Houston and Texas. Schools on his list include LSU, Kansas State, Baylor, Boise State, Missouri, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Oregon State, Stanford, TCU, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and West Virginia. He is big among Big 12 schools in the Midlands, but there are a couple of Pac-12 squads in on his recruitment.

The three-star guard is 6’3″ and weighs 300 pounds, and Phillips also runs a 5.2 forty. The 2013 recruit is one of the top 50 guards in the class and received a 247Sports rating of 83. The recruiting site also ranks Sergio Phillips as the 161st best recruit in the recruiting-rich state of Texas.

TCU is a major program showing interest, and there are several with interest in Phillips as his recruitment moves forward with three offers now under his belt.

Scout.con Midlands recruiting expert Greg Powers is one of the best in the business, and this is what he had to say about him before he received his first offer.

"Sergio Phillips, a 6-foot-4, 300-pounder from DeSoto (Texas) High has competed and succeeded against some of the top competition in the country and has drawn rave reviews from DeSoto head coach Claude Mathis, who has coached a plethora of top D1 recruits."
