Dewayne Collins(QB, sr) of Phillips is getting most of the ink in the papers so far this year. But Phillips is much more than just Collins. I've been impressed by the play of Phillip's Amani Jones(6-0, 210lb, LB, FB, jr). Jones is a wide bodied, hard hitting linebacker with great size(6-0, 210lbs), speed, and strength that translates well at the next level.
Jones has no offers so far but a lot of colleges are looking at him. Wisconsin, Boston College, Northwestern, Indiana, and Western Michigan have expressed interest so far. Syracuse sent a scout to watch him and his other teammates play in their game against Carmel.
Phillips is smart to use him on both offense and defense. Defensively, I've seen him play some good linebacking. He is an explosive tackler and quick on his feet. Offensively, he is listed as a full back but also goes out for receptions. He showed his speed numerous times in their 51-0 win against Stillman Valley. Jones plans to make an unofficial visit to Wisconsin soon Jones has no offers yet, but as long as he and his Phillips teammates keep playing at the level they have been playing, he will absolutely get more looks.
