Sophomore defensive tackle Harrison Phillips announced Tuesday on Twitter that he suffered a torn ACL in the Cardinal’s Saturday game against Northwestern and will be sidelined for the remainder of the 2015 season.

“It’s now time to trust in the plan God has for me,” Phillips wrote in his statement. “I ask simply to keep me in your prayers. It’s going to be a huge challenge to come back from but I am at the best place and have the best staff to do it.”

Phillips will retain three more years of eligibility after this season, as he plans to seek a medical redshirt for 2015.

The former top recruit out of Nebraska played in six games last season at nose tackle despite weighing just 255 pounds, filling in after injuries to both Aziz Shittu and David Parry decimated Stanford’s depth at the position. Although Phillips had been recruited out of high school as a defensive end, he made the switch over to defensive tackle due to Stanford’s continued lack of depth at nose in 2015. He defended one pass against Northwestern on Saturday.
