Joel Willis, Athlete From Pacifica, Commits To Cal Football

Cal football fans gets a little surprise today with the commitment of Joel Willis ($), an athlete from California. Willis was originally a commit for the Washington Huskies, but like Brendon Bigelow, he decided to look elsewhere and eventually was happy with what he saw with the California Golden Bears. Willis chose Cal over primarily Washington and UtahHe's a three star recruit on Rivals (85th best athlete, 73rd best California recruit), a three star recruit on ESPN and the 69th best athlete, and a three star recruit and 69th best cornerback by Scout three star recruit and 69th best cornerback by ScoutTosh Lupoi [surprise, surprise] was his main recruiter.

With Cal short on defensive backs for next season and only three players currently on roster slated at cornerback, the Bears are looking for players that can come in and play corner, and Willis is the type of player the Bears are looking for. He possesses blazing speed, a 4.42 40 time, and pretty good measureables that could help him grow into an aggressive coverage man corner (5'10", 180 lb). And his GPA is pretty polished, implying he can get it done in the classroom at the same time.

Welcome to Cal, Joel. GO BEARS!
