Can FSU get back in on 5-star F Julian Phillips? More fallout at LSU

Julian Phillips, one of the top players in the 2022 recruiting class, will re-open his recruitment. Initially an LSU commit, Phillips decommitted from the Tigers after the firing of head coach Will Wade.

Phillips, a 6-foot-8 small forward, is a 5-star prospect and slots as the No. 12 player in the 2022 class, per 247 Sports Composite rankings.

Phillips committed to LSU in Oct. 2021 and signed in Nov. 2021. He picked LSU over Florida State, Tennessee and USC.

Florida State already has a big 2022 class in the mix: six players, including five signees. There are also NBA Draft decisions on the horizon for talented freshman forwards Matthew Cleveland and John Butler.
