Willis preps at Newtown High School (CT), where he plays on both the offensive and defensive lines. He was such a valuable part of the team that his high school coach Steve George called him “the most underrated player in Connecticut.” He was named to the All-Conference second team at left tackle, was a team captain, and a member of the 1000 pound club. He also throws (puts) the shot put for the track and field team.
Willis is not yet rated by Scout, Rivals, or ESPN but is ranked the No. 9 offensive lineman in Connecticut by MaxPreps. He holds scholarship offers from FCS programs Bucknell, Bryant, CCSU, Deleware State, Fordham, Holy Cross, Stetson; and has also seen some recruiting interest from Maryland and Utah State. Willis is LDS but his mission plans are not yet known.
