2019 Northeast guard Jermaine Phillips flashed how active he can be on both ends of the floor earlier this fall.

The 5’11”, 165-pounder heads into his junior campaign looking to mature on the floor.

“This past season was very eye-opening for me and it made me realize that I could be good if I put in the work,” Phillips told Prep Hoops Florida. “What I learned most is that when you are in the gym, work on your game and focus on your weaknesses don’t work on what you are good at.”

He says his shooting grew the most this past season. He’s looking to score the ball more and be a lockdown defender.

Starting his basketball life at age 7, Phillips took this fall to get stronger and develop his guard skills.

He called his pure scoring ability his biggest strength as he wants to improve his ability to get to the cup and play all the positions on the floor.

No offers or interest have come yet for Phillips. He is a hard worker and I think a bigger role will pay dividends for him this season.
