"I don't have any offers yet, but I have been talking to a lot of schools," Willard told Dawgman.com recently. "I've heard from Nevada, Washington, Duke, Colorado, Arizona, California, Oregon State, Utah and Sacramento State.
"I actually went to the USC, the Duke and the Nevada camps at their schools and then I hit a bunch of satellite camps in the area around where I live."
One of those satellite camps was the one Washington held at Laney College.
"I actually went to their camp up here last summer and then this past summer I was there too," Willard said. "I think I did pretty well and getting coached by the coaches was great. You learn a lot and it was a good time for me to get to know them and for them to get a feel for me."
The lead recruiter for the Huskies with Willard is QB coach Jonathan Smith and the two have formed a good relationship.
"I talk to him the most and I feel really comfortable with him," Willard said. "Coach (Bob) Gregory has also been talking to me. He's the area recruiter here, so I've gotten to know him pretty well too. Both of them seem like good guys and I feel like I can talk to them and ask them anything."
This fall, Willard plans to attend games at Cal and Nevada and he's set up a visit to Montlake as well.
"I'm going up to Washington to see them play Oregon (October 17th)," Willard said. "It'll be my first chance to get up there to see he school and my parents will go up too. I'm excited to see it and the game atmosphere."
Willard is only a junior, but he's already a veteran, starting his sophomore season.
Justin Siena is a run-oriented program, so his stats are not very prolific -- 60 of 133 for 898 yards with four touchdowns and three interceptions; 346 yards rushing and one touchdown in 10 regular season games -- but he did manage to lead his team to a CIF North Coast Section Championship.
"I am more of a drop-back passer, but I can run and make plays with my legs if I need to," Willard noted. "I am not your typical dual-threat guy where they call a lot of running plays for me, but I have enough speed to make guys miss."
Justin Siena is off to 1-1 start so far this season and they will take this week off before hosting Novato (Ca.) on September 18th.
