Redlands East Valley’s Jaelan Phillips announced that he has narrowed his list of 19 college offers down to five with the announcement of his top choice to follow tomorrow at noon.
Phillip’s Top 5 includes four schools from the PAC-12 (Washington, Stanford, UCLA and USC) and Notre Dame being the fifth.
UCLA has been a dream school for Phillips and a program that has drawn the interest of several Inland Empire athletes, especially the last few years.
It would be hard to rule out Stanford as a contender, a place Phillips could fit right in as a student-athlete seeing as how he holds a highly regarded grade point average at REV. Phillips made two trips to the University, one of which was for a junior day event on Feb. 27.
While five schools have reached the final round of the Phillips’ sweepstakes, it is the end of the road for some highly touted programs such as Alabama, LSU, Florida and Michigan.
