Nevada lands football commit
The University of Nevada football team has landed its second verbal commitment for the 2018 season in Crenshaw High’s Patrick Willis, Scout.com reported on Sunday.
Willis, 6-0, 195, is listed as a 2-star athlete by Scout.com, meaning he can plan on offense or defense or be used as a specialist. Willis is now listed as an outside linebacker-free safety for Crenshaw in Los Angeles.
Willis has transferred to Crenshaw after a standout 2016 season at Los Angeles High School (he had a key interception in the Romans’ city championship game victory).
Willis is the second player to commit to Nevada for 2018. He joins Carson Strong, rated as a 3-star quarterback by Scout.com from Will C. Wood High School in Vacaville, Calif.
Strong, a 6-4, 195-pound quarterback, completed 69 percent of his passes in 2016 (184-for-266) for 2,732 yards with 26 touchdown passes and four interceptions as a junior during the 2016 season.
