Deacs make late impression

Quietly, a cornerback from Georgia made his way to Wake Forest over the weekend. The trip seemed to go mostly unnoticed, though the coaches were surely pleased to see him. Myles Willis was the player in Winston-Salem over the weekend, and the resident of Atlanta told Deacon Sports the trip went better than he thought it would.

"It was a really good trip," the 5-9, 176-pound athlete said.

It wasn't his first trip to Wake Forest. The Marist standout had been to the school once before, but that time he wasn't able to get an in-depth look at everything on campus. This trip was different.

"Last time I didn't see downtown Winston-Salem and I didn't really meet the coaches. It was more of an academic tour. This time I got to hang out with some of the recruits and I talked to the coaches and all the other people up there. I got to see a little bit of the city too," he added.

Willis is actually committed to UCF but he will soon decide whether he wants to stick with that pledge or choose another school.

The Wake coaches respected his decision, Willis said, but they have made it known that they're still recruiting him as though he's on the market.

"They did push really hard," he noted. "They really want me. They were saying that while I was there. They were pretty much making it about convenience. Being from Georgia they don't think it would be a big transition to North Carolina. They've got a lot of guys from down here so they think I would do well

"They were telling me it's a real comfortable environment and saying they really want me and I'm high on their board."

Willis said he hopes to put the entire process behind him within the next week to 10 days.
