Former five-star recruit Priest Willis has decided to transfer out of UCLA, becoming the second Bruin cornerback to do so in the span of a week.
The news of Willis’ departure, first reported by Bruin Report Online, follows Jalen Ortiz’s announcement last Tuesday that he would leave UCLA. Neither player was going to break into the Bruins’ starting lineup anytime soon, but Willis at least had a chance to be on the two-deep.
Instead, his UCLA career has ended after just two seasons, with the once-touted defensive back prospect appearing in 20 games. The Arizona native leaves Los Angeles with 27 tackles, three pass breakups and an interception.
Willis still has a redshirt year available, and will preserve two seasons of eligibility at his new school.
