Will Wade has done it again.

Five-star power forward Julian Phillips announced Friday his commitment to LSU. Phillips is the No. 15 overall player in the class of 2022, the No. 2 player at his position and the best player in the state of Missouri. He chose LSU over Tennessee, Florida State, and USC among others.

Phillips visited LSU over the summer.

“The visit was great. Me and my family had a great time down there with coach Wade,” Phillips said in an interview with 247. “They have a really nice campus with real nice facilities, and everything was very good when I went down there. Coach Wade loves my game and I’ve been on multiple zoom calls in the last few weeks where he’s breaking down my game and things like that.”

Phillips is the second player to join LSU’s 2022 class. The Tigers landed a commitment from Devin Ree, a four-star wing from Mississippi, last December.
