Major Defensive Target, Priest Willis, Gets 247's 5*
Priest Willis, CB, Tempe (Ariz.) Marcos di Niza
The 6-foot-2, 200-pound Willis is a player that’s simply impressed every time we’ve watched him in person this spring, including Saturday at the Under Armour Sevens in Phoenix. When you talk about versatility, Willis definitely comes to mind. He can potentially be elite at safety or a boundary cornerback type position in college and has the hips and recover speed to play anywhere that requires coverage. Combine that with his ability in run support and he’s a special prospect. He is now the No. 17 overall prospect in America and No. 3 at cornerback. Willis remains open with his college decision, but we think it’s either USC or the SEC for him.
If you look at his Profile, you'll see four teams listed at 'Warm.' When they say they believe it'll be USC or SEC, they mean USC or LSU. Nebraska and Oklahoma round out his top interests. We're behind right now, but the staff is staying on top of this one.
Another big target at corner is Cole Luke, out of Chandler, AZ. He's another big time corner Nebraska is hot after. But as you can tell from his profile, there's a lot of competition.
