Priest Willis had a feeling UCLA was going to offer him but that didn't temper the excitement since the Tempe (Ariz.) Marcos De Niza cornerback has already visited there and loved it.
"It's a beautiful campus," Willis said. "It's in a nice neighborhood, Hollywood is right there, I loved that campus. It was really nice."
Recruiting has been moving fast for Willis, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound cornerback who finished with 52 tackles and two interceptions in his junior season.

Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon State, Purdue, UCLA, Utah and Washington have offered Willis, who said there is no favorite at this time. Oklahoma State and many others are involved as well.
It's still far too early for the Marcos De Niza to make up his mind so Willis plans to take things slowly.
"I'm just going to take my time," Willis said.
"I want to take some visits and then I'll make my decision later. No team is (in the top five) yet."
Willis, who has already seen Arizona State, UCLA and USC, plans to return to Southern California this weekend for the Trojans' junior day.
The Tempe standout plans to work out at the Los Angeles NIKE Camp this spring as well.
