will enter the 2013 season as the starting quarterback at Bishop Miege High School in Roeland Park, KS. The 2015 prospect will do so with his first Division 1 offer already in-hand.
"I'm very excited," the 6-foot-4, 195-pound passer said of landing a scholarship from Kansas State
on Thursday. "It feels great that the coaches see the potential I have in my game. I'm honored that KSU thinks enough of me as a person and a player to offer me at this point."
A transfer from Olathe (KS) East, Willis arrived at Miege having never started a varsity game. At a recent K-State camp, the strong-armed junior put on a display for the Wildcats staff.
"It is a top-notch program with an awesome coaching staff," he said of Kansas State. "I've grown up following the Cats because my dad is a former player."
Ryan's father, Steve Willis, played for former head coach Jim Dickey. He was a kicker on the 1982 Independence Bowl squad, K-State's first-ever to become bowl eligible.
Thursday was one to remember for Bishop Miege quarterback Ryan Willis. The son of a former Kansas State football player, the 2015 prospect received his first scholarship offer from the Wildcats. Willis reacts and talks about K-State with FOX Sports NEXT.
