He had a pretty impressive offer list.  Another crux in the argument that CMA can't get out of state players.

FWIW, Hogs are now No. 10 according to 247Sports' team rankings for c/ 2018, and the Hogs are No. 16 in the composite national team rankings (composite is an aggregate of the 4 major services -- ESPN, Scout, Rivals, and 247Sports).

Hey Kevin do you know Phillips official height? Is it closer to 6'5 or 6'7?
it seems the avg I've seen now is around 6'6  And 215lbs.   So, that is good size. Long arms and can jump with passing and drive ability.  Great pick up!  Was so glad we got this kid.  Now if we can just get Chaney  as the crown piece.  Ya know, it's hard to imagine how good this class might have been had traiter money bags not cheated his way over to Piss st.   Which, same thing last year, had doo doo brown not went to UK and fit in with last year's class, the Hogs probably easy make final 4.  And same with this 18class.  Now, we have nicely filled in replacement pieces for traiter money bags, and we will take another step towards the promised land this season.  I really believe that by the time gets to post season that no one will want to play us!  I think we'll lose some close games early but really come in around January and go on a long win streak that will take us to a sweet 16 trip.  I figure we'll probably barely miss making it to the final four.  Then when this 18 class hits, we'll be a final four team!  It's happening guys!  Mark it down!  The consecutive years going deep in the tourney will make this new generation look at Arkansas as a destination school once again!  And it just so happens that we have a plethora of in state talent coming up to help Arkansas truly make winning habitual!  :)   I am so happy for Mike and the staff and the Hog fans!   I just truly wish the state produced enough talent in football to be able to help Bielema as much!  Oh well, basketball is headed towards a title, baseball is headed towards a title, at least 2 out 3 ain't bad.

What this 2018 class does for us is secure that we won't take a big dip down out of postseason play. We may fall to the NIT for a year while these kids adjust, but we are going to be competitive and right there in the hunt for the next 5 years.

You conveniently forgot Georgetown, Virginia Tech, Arizona St., TCU... Not powerhouses but all teams looking for players to compete in P5 level basketball and they deemed JP as worthy.

One thing that frustrates me about basketball recruiting is the fudging of heights. One site lists him at 6'5", another 6'6", then RD calls him 6'7", and then Nick Mason this morning calls him a "6'7 to 6'8 wing".

It gets a little ridiculous at times.

Sorry, I was looking at 247, who is usually more accurate than Rivals. Rivals doesn't even have his correct High School listed, so I'm not sure if I would trust them.

No need to try to discredit the kids abilities with your "sources". The coaches are pretty good evaluators of talent and he passes the eye test on film. Plus, he has great measureables along with impressive strength and athletic ability.

Give him at least 24 hours grace period. You have the rest of his career to tear him down. Today however, Hog fans want to praise him.

Edit:   I may have misread your intent and if so, forgive me but I am leaving this up as a warning shot to any of the MMQB suicide squad who wander in here.

Please hold off the premature evaluations. Just a little romance first please.

It can be like that because some take measurements without shoes, others don't. I'm 6'4 without shoes but will boots or some basketball shoes, I look like a legit 6'6.

Ha you're forgiven. My comment had no intent in disrespecting the kid. I just remembered looking at 247, a trusted website, and seeing 4 offers. My reply was more in response to the poster.

Phillips seems to be a real diamond in the rough. We need as many 6-5 plus playmakers as we can get.

Nick mason is the biggest agenda/bias person out there.  If he loves the kid he will embelish him, if it were not a great pull for the hogs he would be listing him at 6'4".  I would take anything Mason says with minimal accuracy.

Btw, I think the kid is a small forward for us regardless of his height. I've seen his video and he isn't quite a 1, we will have plenty of options at the 2, so he really will be a wing player. Now, if he is close to 6'7", he can be like Hall and play the 4 in a small ball set.

He visited Georgetown and had an offer there, and he was scheduled to visit Virginia Tech with a scholarship there, but he cancelled once he knew he wanted to be a Hog.  He's a top 150 guy, a few spots away from being a 4-star on Rivals.  He's a very good pick-up, and a guy that if he would have waited until the Spring would have had a ton of high major offers.

If that is the case, and In my mind, that is exactly what we need.  An athletic wing guy, can post up a little, and have handles.  These are the types that put Mike's system over the top and competitive with top talent.

I have no problem with Phillips, let me be clear. I love the signing. We need long wings. It's just the height inflation has annoyed me for some time in basketball.

We have some real idiots on the radio waves throughout Arkansas.  Nick Mason is just another, just look what he writes.  he is a c h i t stirrer and sparks up the clicks, calls, etc to make people think he followed.

In fairness, He is probably closer to the 6'7-6'8 range, than he is the 6'4'6-5 range.  You have to remember most of those recruiting services don't really go out of there way to keep the weight/heights updated.  For example a lot of recruiting sites had Dan Gafford as 6'9, he's now 6'11 when he got on campus and measured by our staff. 

Here's a good picture to give an indication of how tall he is.  Scotty Thurman is 6'6, at least that's what he was listed as his entire college/professional career.  Both Chaney and Phillips are clearly taller than him by at least a couple of inches.  Chaney isn't standing straight up, so he's probably an inch taller than what he looks on the picture.  So, just going off of that you could probably say Chaney is around 6'8-6'9 which depending on which site your looking at that's correct.  And Phillips looks like he might be an inch shorter than Chaney, so that 6'7-6'8 prediction is probably accurate.

I gotcha, but in this case he's not off or giving the kid anything because he likes him.  That's just what height he's heard he was at.  And looking at the picture I linked it looks like he's at least a legit 6'7.

I absolutely LOVE Drew Morgan!  I clicked on your tweet link of the pictures he took with our staff and then scrolled down to the comments and noticed Drew Morgan said "The best setup for success. UofA  #realtalk".  Love that he is basically still recruiting for us and in a sport that he did not even play!

I noticed this as well.  Something else i noticed that i am surprised i didn't know before or if we did not do it before i am glad we are now. Nolan recruiting for/with Mike.  I am positive meeting and talking with Nolan would catch any kids ear.

I split the difference, going with 6-6 until I see him in person. He's not as tall as Chaney, who some list at 6-7 and others at 6-8.
