Willies Commits to Tech

Former Iowa Hawkeye, Derrick Willies committed to Texas Tech on Tuesday.

Trinity Valley Community College receiver Derrick Willies announced his commitment to Texas Tech via Twitter on Tuesday.

In fact, he was the second junior college receiver to do so joining Hutchinson (KS) Community College slot receiver DeQuan Bowman.

Willies caught 57 passes for 934 yards and seven touchdowns for Burlington (IA) High School in the fall of 2012. After football season he transferred to Rock Island (IL) High School.

The 6-foot-4, 210-pound Willies originally signed with Iowa out of Rock Island. The 2013 three-star prospect reportedly was timed at 4.4 seconds in the 40-yard dash and was rated as a three-star prospect by Scout.

He then redshirted his first year as a Hawkeye before catching four passes for 71 yards and a touchdown in five games last fall.

During his redshirt freshman season Willies left the program for several reasons which were detailed by HawkeyesInsider.com in THIS STORY. According to HawkeyesInsider.com, Willies carried a 3.0 GPA in Engineering while there.

From there Willies enrolled at Trinity Valley in January so that, according to Hawkmania.com, he could avoid sitting out a year and losing a year of eligibility. On Tuesday, Willies became Tech's 10th commit of the 2016 class, second pledge of the day and fifth in eight days.
