Lufkin’s Dhailon Phillips Offered By SFA
One of East Texas' most explosive playmakers has added to his list of offers.
Lufkin junior receiver Dhailon Phillips (6-3, 195) announced via Twitter that Stephen F. Austin became the latest school to offer the Panthers' prospect.
Phillips, who also holds an FBS offer from Texas State, should see plenty more opportunities during the offseason.
SFA, located in nearby Nacogdoches, competes on the FCS level in the Southland Conference. The Lumberjacks are coached by Clint Conque, and are coming off a 4-7 season in 2015.
The 'Jacks have several native East Texans on its roster, and added three more to their 2016 signing class -- Nacogdoches DB Alex Gregory, Tyler Lee QB/ATH Zach Hall, and Brownsboro WR Tamrick Pace.
Phillips had a standout junior season for Lufkin, finishing with 43 catches for 675 yards and six touchdowns in 11 games. The Panthers went 7-4, advancing to the Class 5A Division I bi-district round of the playoffs.
Lufkin will be a member of District 12-6A this fall along with Beaumont West Brook, Conroe, Conroe Oak Ridge, Montgomery, The Woodlands, and The Woodlands College Park.
Phillips, like all 2017 recruits, can officially sign with the school of their choosing on Feb. 1, 2017.
