Safety Priest Willis will take a visit to UCLA, the fifth and final school he'll check out in person. That list doesn't include his hometown school of Arizona State.
Safety Priest Willis has decided to make UCLA his final visit as he decides which school to commit to, according to his high school coach:
Priest Willis will make his final recruiting visit this weekend when he goes to UCLA, according to Marcos De Niza coach Roy Lopez— Varsity Xtra (@varsityxtra) January 16, 2013
UCLA might be the closest school to home the Marcus de Niza product is considering: although he has an offer from Arizona State, the Tempe, Arizona native hasn't taken an official visit to his hometown school. Meanwhile, he has crisscrossed the country with his visits, checking out Nebraska, Florida State, LSU, and Virginia since October. That said, there's no evidence he's ruled Arizona State out. Willis is considered by some to be the top recruit in the state of Arizona.
Willis has offers from 25 schools, but the Under Armour All-American won't decide his destination until close to signing day. Willis is considered one of the top ten safeties in the nation and is considered by ESPN to be the 59th best player in the country.
