One of the top West Coast recruits remaining on the board is cornerback Priest Willis, who is looking around at numerous schools and has left his recruitment up in the air The top seven include schools like the Arizona State Sun Devils, Florida State Seminoles, LSU Tigers, Nebraska Cornhuskers, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, UCLA Bruins and the Virginia Cavaliers. Richard Obert of AZCentral.com has more.

LSU appears to be the front-runner, but it’s not a given he’ll wind up there. He is being bombarded by die-hard fans from Arizona State, Nebraska, UCLA and others on his Facebook page, trying to sway him to their school. He gets the same thing on his Twitter account. He doesn’t let it influence him.

Willis has taken three of his officials to Nebraska, Florida State and LSU. It's unclear if he'll need to visit Arizona State on an official since he lives in Tempe, but expect UCLA to get one of the final visits. Additionally, USC is apparently pursuing him.

Arizona State and UCLA have to feel like they're in good spots here. The Sun Devils are the hometown team, and UCLA has impressed Willis so far. However, LSU is still considered the favorite by a bit, so it's unclear who will end up winning things here.
