Look at today's article on Malik Willis - projected to be a 1st round NFL pick in the 2022 draft.
If someone would have told the Auburn players and coaching staff this back in 2018-2019, they would have laughed.
Willis always had the talent and ability. He needed to get into an environment where he could develop and have an opportunity to see the field and showcase his athleticism. He needed exposure. Something Auburn was not able to give him buried 2nd or 3rd on the QB depth chart. Liberty gave him the environment and exposure to become a 1st round draft pick. Auburn didn't.
Same goes for Zach Rice. Potentially. He might not see the field for a couple years at a P5 school. Liberty can give him the opportunity to play early and often. He wouldn't be a fool to choose Liberty. Was Willis a fool? Who's laughing now?
