June 2023 – Willis was selected 111st overall by the Predators. Pat Quinn


June 2023 – Willis is a smart, high-motor, smooth-skating forward who drives impressive transition results, excelling as a carrier between the dotted lines. His physicality has some catching up to do but he has a lot of strong foundational physical habits that will thrive with added lower body strength. His defensive game is one of his greatest strengths, he consistently forces turnovers when defending the rush and is a consistently active defender in the defensive zone as well. He has middle-six upside as a two-way skilled play-driver who can score from in tight and flashes good playmaking around the slot, weaponizing his and his teammates’ movement. Sebastian High
