Are the Oklahoma Sooners on the Verge of Landing 4-Star LB Jacob Phillips?


The Sooners class of 2017 could very well be on the verge of adding one of the best linebackers in the class of 2017 in Nashville, TN product Jacob Phillips 6-3/230.

Phillips is the number 37 overall ranked prospect in the class of 2017 according to Rivals. He has a had a very busy recruitment to begin his senior season, visiting Alabama, Notre Dame, LSU, Texas A&M, and the Sooners.

Phillips has narrowed things down and is set to announce his decision on Wednesday.

I think it goes without saying that adding Philips to this class would be a monstrous addition that would add some serious defensive firepower to this class. Philips has the size 6-3/230 to be a monster at middle linebacker (he will easily play at 240lbs+), yet is definitely athletic enough to excel in pass coverage as well.

So the big question is will Phillips commit to the Sooners on Wednesday? I am cautiously optimistic that he will. We won’t have to wait long to find out.
