Willis began to explore other options and decided to accept Coach Jeff Breeden’s offer to join the MTSU program. Willis told WMSR that she is excited to be a Lady Blue Raider and will play with former Lady Raider teammate Nicky Campbell who played last season at MTSU. Willis added that she hopes to get a shot at playing shortstop as she did in high school. She played outfield in Chattanooga.
