I went to find him on twitter and realized I was already following him. It must have been because I noticed Boller, Kramer Cook and McCloud were following him on twitter.

Also there was a tweet last week that the coaches were going to be at a several games in Syracuse to evaluate players.

BC is interested in him. According to the coach I spoke to who is extremely knowledgeable, after a few more games this kids recruitment is going to blow up. I trust the source without any doubts.
BC took a DB from CNS last year. They have done a fine job identifying talent in upstate NY in recent years and are well positioned.

Willis is an elite track and field athlete. Whether he can transfer that to the football field is unclear. But he is the kind of kid you take a chance on. Similar to Tyvon Branch, who also went to CNS, was one of the best track guys in NYS, ended up at UConn and had a 10 year career in the NFL.

How does he compare to another Jeremiah-former NY Track Star who came here- Jeremiah Kobena?
Willis is a better track guy.

But Kobena was 6'0, about 180 pounds. Willis is listed at 5'10, 155 pounds. He has to get stronger if he wants to play football.
