Michigan Football: Priest Willis to Join Star-Studded 2013 Recruiting Class?

Colan LamontAnalyst IIJuly 31, 2012

Priest Willis is ranked as a five-star recruit by Scout.com and the stud athlete seems to be very interested in taking a visit to Michigan.

The dynamic player, capable of playing both as a cornerback and safety was first offered back in February by Brady Hoke and company.

With offers from a host of elite college programs like Oklahoma, USC, LSU and Notre Dame, it is a little surprising to think that he would want to join the stacked list of 2013 secondary recruits which includes the likes of Jourdan Lewis, Gareon Conley and Dymonte Thomas.

At 6'2" and close to 200 lbs, Willis already has more than enough size; and this combined with a high 4.3-second 40 time suggests he really is a special athlete.

Michigan fans should be excited to see that Willis has contacted quarterback/recruiting guru Shane Morris with regards to the availability of scholarships:

 

@s_morris12 how long do you think that last Michigan spot is going to be open ? There in my top

—Priest Willis Jr. (@pwillisjr3) July 31, 2012

 

@pwillisjr3 we got 2-3 spots left... I'll messaged you coaches number

—Shane Morris (@S_Morris12) July 31, 2012

Now this may be nothing more than Willis trying to expand his Twitter following; or it could be his way of trying to force Michigan into making a swift decision on his recruitment.

Either way, Morris seems to think there could be three spots left and a trio of Derrick Green, LaQuon Treadwell and Willis would be the prefect conclusion the recruiting class of 2013.

Can you imagine the potential of the Michigan secondary if Willis were to join the cornerback and safety commits of 2012 and 2013.
