Willis enjoys Arizona visit

Priest Willis is one of the top recruits in the country and recently visited Arizona. Read on to see what he thought of the practice, his recruitment, and more.

New University of Arizona football coach Rich Rodriguez has made no secret of his desire to control in-state recruiting. 2013 in-state recruiting will be very important for the UA coaching staff, as the class possesses some of the better players in the country.

Most prominent among these players is Tempe Marcos De Niza cornerback Priest Willis.

Willis is an elite talent and will be able to choose what college he will play for. While he is working hard on the field, he is also concentrating on some of the over looked aspects of the game.

"I really want to focus on being a better student of the game," Willis said. "I want to learn as much as I can so I can anticipate what is going to happen on any play. That can happen by watching film or just studying and observing things on the field.

"Obviously, I also want to get bigger, stronger and faster and just continue to work on my craft to be the best defensive back I can be."

Despite his busy schedule, Willis has checked out some colleges, including UA.

"The Arizona visit went well," Willis said. "I got to check out the campus, which was nice. I got to watch a practice and just see how things went.

"Everybody was working really hard, and the coaches were all funny and seemed to really know what was going on."

Willis liked his UA visit, but there are many other schools he will look at.

"I'm looking at a lot of places, but I don't really have any plans at the moment," Willis said. "I will get that stuff figured out soon and proceed from there.

"As far as a decision, I don't plan on making one any time soon."
