Willis spent two years with the Bruins playing in nine games as a freshman in 2013 mostly on special teams and in 2014, appeared in and totaled 22 tackles on the season. His most tackles I’m a game was seven tackles which he did in front of family and friends at Arizona State.
Willis announced after last season that he would be transferring and Thursday, made his move official. UCLA also had another former AZ prep standout in Jalen Ortiz transfer out of the program this offseason as well.
