The Georgia Bulldogs football program has offered a scholarship to elite class of 2024 athlete Dwight Phillips. The Bulldogs are the latest program to show interest in one of the fastest high school athletes in the country.
Dwight Phillips plays high school football and runs track for Pebblebrook High School in Mableton, Georgia. Phillps is rated as a four-star recruit and is the No. 40 athlete in his class.
The 5-foot-11, 175-pound athlete plays quarterback, running back, wide receiver, and defensive back for Pebblebrook. Phillips won the individual state championship in the 100-meter event. The rising junior ran an incredible 10.43 second time in the 100 to win the 7A state title.
Could Phillips be a rare dual sport athlete in college like Georgia Bulldogs wide receiver and track star Arian Smith?
The four-star athlete has an impressive array of scholarship offers including Oregon, Michigan State, West Virginia, Texas A&M, Kentucky, Florida State, and many more.
On tape, Dwight Phillips’ speed and acceleration is apparent. The average high school athlete simply does not have the speed to keep up with Phillips. The four-star shows versatility, speed, and more speed on film. Phillips returns kicks and punts at a high level and is not going to be caught in the open field.
The Pebblebrook standout announced his scholarship offer from the Georgia Bulldogs via his Twitter account:
