Willis, who prepped at Edna Karr in New Orleans, was part of an elite group of five five-star players LSU hoped to secure commitments from on the same day in 2014.
The other four players? Leonard Fournette (St. Augustine/New Orleans, LSU), Jamal Adams (Hebron High/Dallas area, LSU), Speedy Noil (Karr High/New Orleans, Texas A&M) and Tony Brown (Ozen High/Beaumont, Alabama).
“I really want to ball against LSU,’’ Willis said. “That’s my hometown. I want to…be able to give the fans a show.’”
