The 6-5, 315 pound lineman has finished his senior season for Highland Springs High School. "We ended our season at 9 and 2. We're done for the year."

Don't expect Willis to spend the next few months relaxing however as he plans to work hard in the weight room and on the basketball court. "I'm playing basketball now. I'm also working hard in the weight room."

Is the prize recruit still firm with his commitment to the Tigers? "Yes, I'm still firm with my commitment," stated Willis.

Willis enjoyed watching the Tigers impressive wins against Florida State and South Carolina over the past few weeks. "I watched both games. I enjoyed watching them, but I'd rather be playing."

The Highland Springs standout has not scheduled any official visits but he does plan to visit Clemson. "I will visit Clemson. I don't have a date yet."

So will the powerful lineman schedule any other official visit? "I may. I haven't really thought about it yet." Willis was not sure where he would visit if he decides to take any additional visits.

Coach Lovett continues to keep in touch with the Virginia prospect. "Coach Lovett called last week. He just wanted to know how I was doing. He wished me a happy Thanksgiving."
