Crimson Countdown: DT Jordan Phillips 

June, 28, 2013
During the summer months, SoonerNation will take a closer look at each player on Oklahoma’s roster in our Crimson Countdown series. Each day, we will analyze each player’s impact on the program since arriving on campus, his potential impact this fall and his long-term impact. Starting with No. 1 Kendal Thompson, the series will follow the roster numerically through our final analysis of No. 99 Chaz Nelson.

No. 80 Jordan Phillips
Defensive tackle, 6-foot-6, 324 pounds, sophomore

Impact thus far: There has been more hype than substance thus far, even though Phillips slowly came on as a redshirt freshman. He reached the point where he played regularly in OU’s defensive tackle rotation during the home stretch of the 2012 season, finishing with 12 tackles in 10 games played as a redshirt freshman.
