Phillips eyes two schools

The Gators have been on the recruiting trail for the last month evaluating prospects in all classes.

One of the guys that the Gators have visited is 2015 Miami (Fla.) Central receiver Devonte Phillips.

“Everything is going good for us this spring,” Phillips said. “We are all working hard on the field this spring and a lot of college coaches have come by to see me and my teammates.”

For the 6-foot-1, 189-pound Phillips, two schools are standing out to him as he gets ready to make an early commitment.

“I plan on committing this summer sometime,” Phillips said. “Florida and Miami are the two schools that are recruiting me the hardest right now. Coach T-Rob from Florida and coach (James) Coley are the two coaches that are recruiting me from those schools.”

The 2015 prospect says that he has the best relationship with cornerbacks coach Travaris Robinson form Florida.

“I love coach T-Rob,” Phillips said. “He is open with us and treats us like family every time I talk to him or see him. He just tells us what’s real in life and what it’s going to be like at Florida or any other college program we go to.”

Phillips says that both Miami and Florida give the family atmosphere feeling when he talks to them.

Phillips teammate is Florida running back commitment Dalvin Cook and the two of them plan to visit Florida this summer.

“I will probably visit Florida for Friday Night Lights with Dalvin,” Phillips said. “But I know I’m going to go up with him sometime. I want to go up there and sit down and talk with the coaches. They tell me when it’s my time to play in college that they will be throwing the ball a lot, so I want to see what they have.”
