Hometown: Atlanta, Georgia
High School: Marist School
Position: ATH (Running Back, Wide Receiver, Punt Returner, Wildcat QB)
Weight: 180 lbs
Rankings: Rivals 3* (position 72), Scout 3* (position 100), ESPN 3* (rated a 77, 94 position, 73 state), 247 Sports 3* (rated a 81, position 202, state 105). Selected Boston College over UCF, Western Kentucky, Connecticut, Virginia, Wake Forest, Mississippi State, Florida State. Originally recruited by Aaron Smith.
Stats: Finished senior season with 831 rushing yards, 707 passing yards, and 13 total touchdowns.
Strengths: Willis is easily the fastest player in this BC recruiting class. He has a second gear that is simply awesome to watch. He played in high school with what looks like a small offensive line, so it will be interesting to see what he will be able to accomplish with the BC line.
Realistic Outlook: It looks like BC will be using Willis as a running back, which could make him an immediate contributor to the BC offense. His versality and solid speed would be a huge asset for Steve Addazio who wants to run the ball, but is running out of running backs. Love his attitude and commitment to BC, expect he could be a name we hear called often at the Heights!
