    Willis is a big, athletic DB who may eventually grow into a LB at the next level. He made a name for himself at the Semper Fi underclassmen combine earlier this month, where he posted that 4.56 forty time.

    He was an honorable mention All-State selection as a junior after registering 52 tackles and 2 INTs from his CB spot. He also qualified for the state track meet in both long jump and triple jump as a sophomore.

    Willis now has offers from half of the PAC-12. I think he is a dynamite prospect and hope we offer soon.

    Heading to the USC junior day this weekend after receiving an offer from them this week. The Trojans are likely in the lead here.

    Right now, it's pretty much watching USC pick its 15 and then everyone recruits whomever's left.

    Enjoy it while it lasts, Troy. Buffs are coming for you.

    Sickening. Huge advantage for them. It's a free recruiting visit for talent within easy driving distance.

    We have now offered. Willis is a stud and still underrated at #84 nationally IMO.

    USC likes him as a CB, and (at the moment) is in the lead.

    Per ESPN Insider, he named his top 16 yesterday, and we weren't on it. No big surprise.

    Maybe he was just thinking that cvillebuff is super awesome and I gotta get to school near him even if it does mean not going to Colorado.

    As you know, Charlottesville is awesome. I doubt they sign him, but there'd be no shame in losing out to them. I literally have nothing negative to say about UVA.

    Other than how they consistently punch below their weight in most sports?

    Agreed. They really don't care about high level sports, but still a great university in a terrific college town. Increasingly, my heart says dear ole CU can be Wisconsin, but increasingly my head says UVA.

    My main concern is losing a kid from a state we should be hitting, potentially to a school like UVA 2,000 miles away
