Jaron Willis is a 6’2 210 pound safety from Leesburg, GA.

The Class of 2022 prospect attends Lee County High School.

Willis doesn’t currently have a ranking, but he already has offers from Auburn, Florida, Georgia Tech, Michigan State, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Pittsburgh, South Carolina, Syracuse, Tennessee, USC, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia, among others.

In April, he was offered by Florida State:

TN caught up with Willis after the offer to learn more about his recruitment:

How’d you receive the Florida State offer, and what’d it mean to you?

“I received the offer by talking to Coach Woodson—we hit if off very well.

The Florida State [offer] means a lot to me—to get an offer from them is a dream come true, and I feel highly blessed. FSU is my dream school, and I thank God for another blessing!”

With the offer, did FSU move to the top of your list?

“Yes, sir.”

I assume you plan on visiting FSU when the Dead Period is finally over, right?

“No doubt—FSU is my top school to visit.”

What other schools do you plan/hope to visit?

“Ole Miss, Florida, Georgia Tech, Auburn, Tennessee, and Oklahoma State.”

How would you describe your game?

I’m a student of the game.

I play fast and physical, and I love to talk trash—that feeling is so [good] when you get the other team [off their] game.”

What player(s) do you look up to/model your game after?

“I look up to Isaiah Simmons, and the great Sean Taylor.”

Finally—what are the biggest things you’re looking for in a school?

“Relationship [between] the player and coach because [they’re] the people you have to go to battle with.

[Also] the school life, and the fans—I figured out the fan base can help you a lot.”
