Report: UConn WR Shakim Phillips To Transfer Back To Boston College?

Left because of Spaz, returns because of Daz?

In what could be an interesting move, Connecticut senior WR Shakim Phillips could be returning to the Heights after a three year stay in Storrs. According to the Boston Herald's Adam Kurkjian, Phillips is at Boston College as we speak:

You may remember Phillips as a four star wide receiver who was recruited by Frank Spaziani but transferred before the 2011 season after our former head coach continued playing musical chairs with his offensive coordinators. Phillips, a 6-foot-2, 209 pound receiver had a relatively strong career up to this point with the Huskies, finishing third on the team in catches (28) and yards (406) in 2013. His career in Storrs East Hartford was highlighted by a 10 catch, 170 yard performance against Maryland. Phillips also missed the final two games of the season due to an injury.

Getting a year out of Shakim Phillips would be a huge boost for the Eagles, who already have lost Alex Amidon (graduation), Spiffy Evans (transfer) and Marcus Grant (transfer). The Eagles are very thin at the position and Phillips would most likely slot right in as a starter. A starting three WR set of Harrison Jackson, Bobby Swigert and Shakim Phillips gives Murphy a solid trio of receivers to work with. Then slot in a freshman as depth or if injuries pop up.

I haven't read anything to confirm it, but given that he had to sit out a year already, I imagine Phillips has enough credits to graduate and would be available immediately. Again, there is nothing confirmed, but if Addazio again goes out and grabs a player with experience to play in a position of need, then you have to tip your cap to the coach.
