Payton Willis’ Father Calls in & Clears the Air on His Son’s Recruitment

Willis’ father says Malik Monk, Eric Curry might have followed his son to Arkansas

By Bart Pohlman

Curtis Willis, father of former Fayetteville High School standout and current Vanderbilt basketball player Payton Willis, called Sports Talk on Tuesday to clear the air about his son’s recruitment.

“I don’t want Hog fans to think they didn’t want Payton,” Curtis Willis said. “That’s not true.”

But the Arkansas staff never offered Payton Willis a scholarship, Curtis Willis said.

“They had to throw the bathroom tub at (Malik) Monk, which was fine,” Curtis Willis said. “They kind of forgot about Payton, which was also fine. Arkansas just had to offer him.”

It seemed like Arkansas and Payton Willis were “just trying to feel each other out,” his father said.

Curtis Willis said that, while it’s just his opinion, he thinks if Payton Willis had ended up at Arkansas, Kentucky’s Malik Monk and Minnesota’s Eric Curry would have joined him on The Hill.
