Smitherman is one of those kind of players fans and recruiters show up to watch put on a show. He is a true talent that plays with a football toughness and a chip on his shoulder at all times. Its something you can’t teach, but its built into the great ones, and it doesn’t hurt that he holds a 4.55 in the 40 and a 36 inch vertical. One of the most amazing athletes I have seen, he is one dangerous DB who can make you pay in a big way.
Phillip, who stands 6-1, 177 is a junior that football people know, not only in Oklahoma City but throughout Oklahoma. Also on the 2018 State Championship basketball team at Heritage Hall, he holds a 3.7 grade point average and a 28 ACT.
