Decision From Willis Could Come Soon

Former UCLA cornerback Priest Willis has been at Oklahoma State on an official visit since Sunday evening and he will depart early Tuesday morning. It is expected the former four-star standout from Marcos De Niza High School in Tempe, Ariz., will announce a decision soon as he would need to move fast in order to report to his new school for the start of fall camp.

Texas A&M and North Carolina are the other schools that he has visited. It is likely between the Aggies and Cowboys.

Willis will not be eligible for the upcoming season but has a redshirt season to burn as he sits out his transfer season and would have two seasons to play. Oklahoma State has already picked up a major college transfer this summer as Derrick Moncrief, a safety, transferred from Auburn.

Willis is a 6-2, 185-pound speedy corner that earned Under Armour All-American honors in high school. He has played two seasons at UCLA, and last season played in 12 games and started one (California). He had 22 tackles with seven coming in the start against Cal and four more tackles in the Alamo Bowl versus Kansas State. As a freshman he played in nine games and had nine tackles.

Willis had offers coming out of high school from Arizona, Arizona State, Arkansas, Florida State, Florida, LSU, Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oklahoma State, Oregon State, Tennessee, USC, Utah, and Washington among others.
