Bio: 
Three-year starter named Honorable Mention All-Conference USA in 2016 after rushing 189 times for 907 yards and four touchdowns and catching 20 passes for 242 yards and an additional score. Earned Second Team All-Conference USA honors as a junior, carrying 190 times for 961 yards and five touchdowns. Rushed for 1,436 yards and 20 touchdowns in 2014. Didn’t record a start as a true freshman but led Charlotte with 716 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns on 129 carries.
Pos: 
Sturdy interior ball carrier with the ability to create yardage. Patient, displays terrific vision and finds the running lanes. Quick-footed, fluid cutting back against the grain and shows the ability to set defenders up and make them miss. Effectively uses blocks everywhere on the field and bounces around defenders or avoids piles. Runs solid pass routes and effectively picks up blocking assignments.
Neg: 
Not a natural hands-catcher and drops too many easy throws. One-speed back who lacks a burst and cannot beat defenders into the open field.
Analysis: 
Phillips is a tough, hard-working interior ball carrier with possibilities as a short-yardage runner or situational back.
