Willis En Route to BC

This morning, Marist School (GA) star Myles Willis will board a plane for the very first time, flying from Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson to Boston’s Logan Airport – a route that will become familiar to the Boston College commit.

Willis has nine TDs in four games this season.

“I’m very excited. I have been looking forward to getting back to Boston,” said the 5-foot-10, 180-pound prospect, who visited back in June.

That summer trip eventually led to his switch from Central Florida to Boston College, something the Peach State prospect agonized over. This time around, though, he’s looking to just sit back and relax.

“I’m excited to see the game and view some of Boston College’s traditions and chants,” he said. “I’m really excited to see the superfan t-shirts filling the student section.”

Always a student of the game, Willis had a couple thoughts on what Boston College needs to do Saturday in order to knock off their Top 25 opponent, Clemson.

“Defensively they must force Clemson to drive up and down the field and prevent the big play,” said Willis, who is recruited by Wide Receivers Coach Aaron Smith. “Offensively, they must maintain good drives to wear down the defense and keep the Clemson offense on the sideline.”

Oh, and some recent injury news is a factor, says the three-star, 81-rated athlete.

“Well, they just received some huge help with Sammy Watkins being inactive,” he said, speaking of the Tigers’ explosive wideout and return man who will remain in South Carolina due to illness.

Willis returns home from his official visit on Sunday and Heights247 will catch up with him then to get his thoughts on his second trip to Chestnut Hill.
