The Plant High School to 17th Street pipeline is in full effect. Whop Philyor is officially headed to Bloomington.

Teammates with Juwan Burgess & head coach Tom Allen’s son and already-enrolled LB Thomas Allen in high school, the Tampa wideout is an integral part of the Tampa-to-Bloomington pipeline.

HOW HE STACKS UP

Philyor put up video-game like numbers at Plant en route to a Florida High School state title game in 2016. He hauled in 91 catches for 1,329 yards and 20 touchdowns. In one season. Of high school football. Not college. Not the NFL. High school.

He’s a mid 3-star recruit by all services.

WHAT IT MEANS

Philyor feels like a slot reciever, but he’s still a bit taller than others that have played the position (Ricky Jones, Mitchell Paige) for Indiana in recent seasons. A major threat with the ball in his hands. Don’t be shocked if he contributes early at Indiana as a versatile skill position type.
