Clark Phillips III is one of the top defensive backs in the class of 2020.
The junior out of La Habra, California has many of the top programs in the country after him, and last night, he outlined those that currently stand out.
Clark Phillips III announced his top 12 via Twitter on Monday night.
It doesn’t sound like this is necessarily a list of finalists, at this point in his recruitment.
Thank God for putting me in this position ?? pic.twitter.com/8PIVQCFlXZ

The full list: Arizona State, Cal, LSU, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oregon, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Utah, Vanderbilt, and Washington.
There are no crystal ball predictions over at 247 for where he will wind up committing.
Phillips is ranked No. 53 overall in the class.
He’s No. 6 among cornerbacks, and No. 9 in the state of California.
This fall, he recorded 18 tackles, 10 pass deflections and two interceptions at cornerback, and was also a very productive receiver for La Habra. On offense, Phillips went for 1,210 yards and 19 touchdowns on the season.
The SEC seems to be factoring into Phillips’ recruitment in a big way. Alabama, which did not crack this top 12, hosted in back in June, and he took unofficial visits to LSU and Texas A&M, both of which are on the list, for games in November.
