Willis Wilson, a running back with the Washington Huskies the past three years, is set to join the Rainbow Warriors.
There are several procedural steps that need to be cleared before it becomes official. If all goes according to plan, by joining as an initial walk-on, Wilson is expected to be eligible to play this coming season.
Cornerback Dee Maggitt was helpful after Wilson decided he wanted to transfer. Both were raised in Washington.
Wilson ,who is is from Lakewood, was a decorated running back at Lakes High. As a senior in 2009, he rushed for 1,425 yards and 22 touchdowns. He was named South Puget Sound's offensive player of the year.
In 2010, he was named the Huskies' scout player of the year.
He did not play in any games in 2011, and had one rush in 2012.
