The Wisconsin Badgers received good news on the recruiting trail on Saturday afternoon, as 2019 wide receiver Cameron Phillips publicly announced his verbal commitment to UW.
247Sports, ESPN, and Rivals all rate Phillips, who played for IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., as a three-star recruit. 247Sports’ composite rankings designate Phillips as the No. 75 wide receiver in the nation with seven offers from programs including Kentucky, Minnesota, and Cincinnati.
Both 247Sports and Rivals list Phillips as a wide receiver. ESPN lists him as an athlete.
Wisconsin now holds 18 known verbal commitments for the class of 2019, with Phillips joining Stephan Bracey as the two projected wide receivers in this recruiting cycle.
Phillips was definitely a high-priority target real early in this 2019 cycle. His name fell off our radar a bit this year but resurfaced in a big way. Definitely a surprise commitment.
