Willis had offers from Clemson and Akron but is expecting other offers to come as he is now receiving significant interest from Tennessee, North Carolina State, Ohio State, Michigan State, North Carolina and Virginia.

The 6-6, 300 pound prospect, who runs a very impressive 5.0 forty, visited Clemson on an unofficial visit a few weeks ago and came away very impressed. "I felt Clemson had a great academic setup. I really liked the environment. I thought it was a place I could grow as a player and as an individual."

Location was obviously not a factor as the Virginia native has no problems at all making the trip down to Tiger Town. "My parents are for it," Willis added. "They don't mind that it is far away because they just want me to be happy wherever I am."

An offensive lineman and defensive tackle at the high school level, Willis currently has no preference as to where he would like to play at the next level.

"I'm really open to either," Willis said. "I have fun playing offense and defense so I'm just going to be more than satisfied to be playing college football down the road."
