Jim Mora and the UCLA Bruins received huge news on Wednesday when 2013 star recruit Priest Willis (Tempe, AZ) pledged his commitment to the Bruins.
Willis, a defensive back out of Marcos de Niza High School, is a consensus top 60 recruit according to Rivals (No. 59), ESPN (No. 59), and Scout (No. 41). He had been offered by many of the big programs in the country, and had narrowed his list down to ULCA, LSU, and Arizona State before choosing the Bruins.
Willis is the 16th 4-star recruit for the Bruins, according to Rivals.com, and the class now ranks No. 9-overall. He joins two other highly ranked 4-star defensive back prospects: Johnny Johnson 9 (No. 169-overall), Tahaan Goodman (No. 80-overall).
