Airyn Willis: All Schools Under Consideration

When a recruit is listed as "athlete" his college career can go in many directions. Such is the case with SW Guilford (NC) High School, Airyn Willis. The 6'3"-180 will not only be deciding which school to attend but which position to play.

Airyn Willis - Profile

Georgia Tech was the first school to offer Willis and they have told him he'll have a chance to play quarterback. "While I'd like to play quarterback, I would also like to play any position, if given the chance…It doesn't have to be just quarterback."

Willis originally committed to East Carolina but rescinded his verbal. They were one of the first to offer him along with Tech. Since he rescinded his verbal, North Carolina State, West Virginia, and Wisconsin have all offered Airyn.

Willis is interested in Tech but wants to take a look at all the schools that are recruiting him. "I'm keeping all the schools under consideration." Willis has been talking to Georgia Tech offensive line Coach Todd Spencer. He has yet to visit the Tech campus but has made plans for a visit. "I'm scheduled to be there for the next Junior Day on April 17th."

In addition to the visit to Tech in April, Willis has scheduled some in-state visits. "I plan on going to Duke and North Carolina State for their Junior Days.

Location will not be one of the factors that Willis will be using in making his decision. "I don't have to be close to home." He wants to be comfortable wherever he goes and he's looking for a school with good academics, coaches he likes, and a place where he fits in.

Willis won't be making that decision by himself. He'll get advice from his parents and some of his coaches. "My coach has advised me to go where I want." The coaches have spent time at Tennessee, Ohio State and other schools. "When it comes down to it, I'm the one who will spend four or five years there, so it's up to me."

Airyn has not made any plans to attend summer camps. "I don't see a need and you always risk injury." Willis is also not playing basketball his senior season for the same reason.
