Willis Not Wasting Time


The Boiling Point: Former 2013 basketball commitment Derek Willis didn’t wait long to start visiting other schools as he went to Louisville on Monday.

Less than 24 hours after making his de-commitment to Purdue coach Matt Painter official, highly-touted 2013 basketball recruit Derek Willis was on Louisville’s campus watching the Cardinals practice. This comes after Derek’s father, Del, said this to the Louisville Courier-Journal on Sunday.

"The father said the family has had “no contact” with any other schools and noted they were “going to lay low for a week or so and not talk to anybody.”"

So much for laying low, huh?

Given that Willis is on Louisville’s campus, it’s likely there was some behind-the-scenes recruiting taking place, as Scout.com’s Brian Snow reported on Sunday. He noted that Kentucky, Louisville and Indiana had all made contact with Willis. Welcome to the fun world of college basketball recruiting.
