In case you were unaware the Oklahoma Sooners hosted 4-Star LB Jacob Phillips (6-3/230) for his official visit this weekend. Phillips stars for East Nashville Magnet High School in Nashville, TN. If you are wondering what schools Phillips can choose from, basically you can name almost any school in the country, but most assume that he is down to three schools (OU, Bama, and Notre Dame).

Phillips is exactly what you look for in a prototype inside linebacker. He will play at 240lbs. + very easily and would solidify the Sooners linebacker class in 2017 as one of the best in the country. The major thing that sticks out with Phillips is that despite his size, he looks incredibly comfortable dropping in to zones in pass coverage.
We won’t have to wait to long for Phillips decision, as he will decided soon after he finishes all 5 of official visits. Something tells me you should like the Sooners chances with this one.
Prediction: Jacob Phillips will commit to Oklahoma.
