Derek Willis is a consensus top 50, 4-star prospect in the class of 2013 and currently ranked as high as 23rd by Rivals. Check out the link to what he told Jody Demling.
I believe his disappointment in Friday's scrimmage attendance is newsworthy, mostly because he's a local prospect. Moreso than with football, if our basketball program cannot land 4-star or 5-star talent in its own "back yard," it's discouraging.
The jury is out on where Willis will go, but it should be noted that UL fans filling the Yum! only halfway on Friday night struck a chord with him. He has grown up around this fanbase and clearly expected more. Honestly, so did I.
I don't think this ultimately affects his decision. But, I definitely think it's a commentary on what stands out to recruits, as well as to what their perception and expectation of our fanbase is.
