BIG ERN

CB Priest Willis [UCLA Commit]

Recommended Posts

He says that he WILL be here for the spring game, that is something that he and his dad are commited to. He aslo says that his top priority is a close relationship with the coaches, finding a coaching staff that he can really trust. I feel strangely good about this kid, but I know its early and anything can happen.

He also landed at 84 on Rivals top 100

Big physical kid. Would love for this one to be a Husker. I am hoping the DB's in high school see our need for them and we get some big names next year.

This kid was blessed with a GREAT name. Lord knows Priest Holmes was one of the coolest names in the NFL in a while, not to mention he was a heck of a player there for a good long stretch. Also, doesn't hurt to combine that with the name of one of the premier defensive playmakers in the league (Patrick Willis). :)

I like Laquvionte a little better. Sounds like the name of a villain on a Mexican soap opera. But in his profile pic he looks like Dennis Rodman's nephew.

We really need to get on some good safeties in this class. Looks like this guy would be a good one to push for as looks pretty damn good and has ties to NU.

Grew up a USC fan.

 

Now that you mentioned it...this isn't a surprise. Now he along with Cravens as SC being their childhood favorites.

This is the build of a kid that we seem to be looking for in a cornerback/safety. Here you go Coach Raymond. Time to fight off the likes of Marvin Sanders and USC.

I'm just wondering what we'd say if after a little research by the kid, he asks us about Marvin.

Dont worry about it Redtillimdead, not much we can do from behind our computer screen, so its hard to answer your questions.

According to Rivals they might try to attend the same school. With Lacy being a relative of Marcel Jones and Willis' HS coach being a former Blackshirt, I'd say Nebraska has a pretty good chance.

 

HuskerBoard might blow up if we land Willis, Lacy, Cravens and Mathis since Willis/Lacy and Cravens/Mathis are talking about being possible "package deals".

I'd happy with anyone of these guys, we have a need for all of them. That said package deals rarely come to fruition, that doesn't mean they don't happen.

That orange sure is ugly. Give me a sec....I did a little photo editing. This is what he should look like in a Nebraska hoodie.

nice little article on priest willis by huskerillustrated. “I grew up a fan,” he said. “I’ve been a fan ever since I was little and you know my trainer – Toby Wright – he used to play safety for them. I love Nebraska football.” went on to say he wont be making it to the spring game because he doesnt have the money to make it but would love to make an official visit to nebraska at a later time. great article, he is a beast!

Him visiting improves are chances by a lot. I feel if there is a good prospect not from the state of Nebraska that is a 5 star or high 4 star and they dont visit they are as good as gone.
