QB Reese Phillips on Patrick Towles, Drew Barker, Maxwell Smith and more


Maybe Reese Phillips has not received the hype or attention that in-state quarterbacks Patrick Towles and Drew Barker have in recent weeks. But not only is he talented, he’s also a terrific youngster.

Just check out how he answered these questions after the Blue-White Game:

On the other guys: “Oh, we’ve all gotten a lot better. Pat’s gotten better. Drew, he’s done a lot of good things. I’ve done a lot of good things. So I feel bad for the coaches, because we’ve all done a lot of really good things and a lot of our mistakes are the exact same mistakes, so …”

On his strengths: “My decision-making. I don’t make a lot of mistakes. I think I’ve had a real solid, consistent spring, and I think that’s what you want from a quarterback.”

On the competition: “It’s a friendly competition. We’re all friends. We’re real good friends, actually. We talk out struggles we’re having during practice. We’ll talk out what we need to do and stuff like that.”

On how easily Barker blended in: “Very easily. Very easily. Pat and Drew are from the same area. But my roommate, Cameron Fogle, that’s like his best friend. So I hung around Drew before he got here, and it was an easy transition.”

On what the spring has been like for Maxwell Smith: “He’s been positive. He’s one of my good friends, so he’s helped me a lot. He’s helped us all a lot. He’s (in) kind of a coaching-type of role. He’s embraced it.”

    Don’t lose sight of the goal. Winning the coveted starting spot. Good luck to all.

      I’m not going to jinx him. The last QB I thought was a really good QB and a great guy found himself the odd man out and left the team. I want Reese to hang around. If Barker gets the RS, then Reese will play even if he doesn’t get the starting nod on day one.

    Good luck Tennessee boy, you have got what it takes to be a great QB!

    I can’t wait till these guys get more practices in during summer. Barker is a distant 3rd and you can bet he will bust his butt to get the playbook down. Exciting times again.

    Thanks Larry V for this article on Reese. He is a great athlete and fine young man, and he is a competitor. I wish them all well, and may the best man win the coveted title of starting QB for the Kentucky Wildcats.
