Kyle Philips is the next wide receiver who hopes to add to the legacy of great pass catchers at UCLA.
The 5-foot-11, 176-pound Philips is a native of San Marcos, Calif., and has been committed to the Bruins since the spring. He is expected to sign with the Bruins on Wednesday and also plans to enroll early.
Here is all you need to know about UCLA’s dynamic wideout in the Class of 2018:
4-star WR Kyle Philips
247Sports composite ranking: No. 57 wide receiver, No. 43 prospect in California, No. 330 overall
Hometown: San Marcos, Calif.
School: San Marcos
Weight: 176 pounds
Offers: 15, including Michigan, TCU, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Utah and others
Commitment: April 21, 2017
Senior season stats: 1,318 yards on 59 catches and 10 receiving TDs in 2017. For his career, Philips had 195 catches, 3,170 receiving yards and 31 TDs. He also had 2 interceptions on defense.
Where he fits at UCLA: Philips joins a deep pool of talented wide receivers who will return to the Bruins in 2018, including seniors Jordan Lasley and Christian Pabico, junior Theo Howard and sophomore Demetric Felton. However, Philips was a highly productive player in high school, and if he comes in and has a good camp, he could push for a spot as a reserve receiver.
