Willis was rated 2-stars by Scout, and was note rated by Rivals or ESPN.  He was also ranked the No. 9 offensive lineman in Connecticut by MaxPreps. He held scholarship offers from FCS programs Bucknell, Bryant, CCSU, Deleware State, Fordham, Holy Cross, Stetson; and saw some recruiting interest from Maryland and Utah State.
