Bio

Position: Defensive End

Previous College: None

Projection: Redshirt

Status: On Scholarship

Jordan Willis is a freak of nature, pure and simple. Although some question whether he leaves it all on the field at the high school level, there is no doubt in my mind that Bill Snyder is going to mine every ounce of talent out of him.

You can watch Willis' highlight video here, but I actually recommend Googling him and finding any one of countless videos of him in the weight room. The dude is a workout warrior.

There's one video of him doing a standing box jump of (I think) at least 42 inches. That's more than first-round draft pick and explosive Houston Texans starter J.J. Watt did during the NFL Combine. And Willis is in high school.

Although I suspect the coaches will elect to redshirt this physical talent, it wouldn't surprise me in the least if he made his way on to the field in 2013, given our major concerns about defensive end talent right now.

Hell, Willis might even start. Considering we'll be lucky to have him for more than three seasons anyway, why not?
