How did the commitment go down this past weekend?
Willis: At 12:00 my dad and I called coach Bowden. First my dad talked to him. Then I talked to him. I told him I really liked Clemson and I wanted to play for Clemson. He said they really like me and wanted me to become a Tiger.
How does his father feel about his commitment?
Willis: My dad thought it was a great decision. I explained to him why I wanted to commit to Clemson. He understood that was what I wanted to do and he was all for it.
Why did you decide to commit to Clemson this early?
Willis: I really like the school and the environment. I wanted to commit early to get the pressure off so I could enjoy my senior season.
How firm is your commitment headed into your final season of high school football?
Willis: It's very strong. I don't think that would change things at all if anybody else offered me at this point. I'm coming to Clemson.
Which side of the play will you be playing on in college?
Willis: I can play either way, but I think they want me as an offensive lineman. Either one is fine with me though.
How do you feel about playing the same position as your father did in college?
Willis: Well, my dad is an offensive line coach for my high school. He coaches the interior line and another coach handles the tackles. My dad played college ball at Union College and North Carolina A&T. It's all good.
We'd like to conclude by thanking Mr. Willis for taking the time to speak with CUTigers.com. We will continue to track his on-the-field performance, throughout the 2003 season.
