UConn Wide Receiver Shakim Phillips Officially Transfers Back To Boston College

What once was lost, now is found...

Boston College got a much needed shot in the arm, as Connecticut wide receiver Shakim Phillips has transferred back to the Eagles.

Here is the Shakim Phillips story in case you were not aware. Phillips was a 4* wide receiver recruit, who chose BC over a bevy of other programs. He came to the Eagles and never clicked with the coaching staff, and after a season decided to transfer to the Connecticut Huskies. Over three seasons with the Huskies he caught 61 passes for 814 yards and four touchdowns. When Paul Pasqualoni's staff was replaced with Bob Diaco's, he left the team deciding to transfer for his final year, back where he started with the Eagles and because he is a graduate student he won't need to sit. He'll be joining fellow UConn send off Ty-meer Brown on the roster.

The Eagles wide receiving group was decimated by losses this previous off season with the graduation of leading wide receiver Alex Amidon, Spiffy Evans leaving the program, and Harrison Jackson being lost for the season with an injury. Phillips will be joining Bobby Swigert, Charlie Callinan, Drew Barksdale, Josh Bordner and a slew of freshmen who will all be competing for playing time on the wide receiving corp. There are no clear cut favorites for playing time, but you have to imagine looking at that group that Phillips has a good opportunity as any.

Phillips alluded to his return when someone on Twitter asked him about his final year of eligibility and where he was going to play:

He should be getting to campus when camps start in August. Welcome BACK to the Heights Shakim!
