In mid-December, it was reported that Jaelan Phillips would be leaving UCLA. A little over two months later, Phillips announced on Twitter that he would be headed to Miami to join Manny Diaz and the Hurricanes.
Phillips has confirmed via social media that he has officially been admitted to the University of Miami.
While Phillips is expected to join the Hurricanes he will not play for the team in 2019 as he continues to recover from multiple head injuries. Beginning with the 2020 season, and provided he’s healthy enough to take the field, the linebacker would have two years of eligibility at his disposal.
Phillips was the No. 1-rated recruit in the entire country for the Class of 2017
