Malik Willis Bio

Malik Willis is a Quarterback prospect from Atlanta, Georgia. He was rated 3 stars coming out of highschool and originally committed to Virginia Tech, before decommintting and ultimately ending up at Auburn. He was the QB to Jarrett Stidham. 2019 seemed to be his year to be the starter, but when Auburn landed 5 star QB Bo Nix, Malik transferred to Liberty. He had to sit the 2019 season out due to NCAA transfer eligibility rules.

Malik Willis is a dual threat quarterback and starting at Liberty showcased his abilities. His career at Liberty was an instant success, where he totaled over 5,000 passing yards and 47 touchdowns in his two seasons. He dominated the position in 2020, so much so, that it led Liberty to being ranked within the AP top 25 at the end of the season. On the ground, Malik led the Flames in rushing yards. He outpaced his running backs in 2020 and 2021 by 147 yards and 431 yards respectively.

Expectations for Willis to enter the NFL should not suprise anyone. It's in his blood. His uncle, James Anderson, was a standout linebacker at VIriginia Tech. He was drafted in the 3rd round of the 2006 draft by the Carolina Panthers.

Malik Willis was drafted in the 3rd round of the 2022 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans. Willis should be able to take the starting job if he capitalizes on his athleticism. If not he’ll continue to be a backup.
