The U.S. Army All-American is the nation's No. 8-ranked defensive tackle according to Scout.com. His other finalists were UCLA and Miami.
In mid-September, Willis verbally committed to Tennessee, but continued to visit other schools. Just before leaving for San Antonio, he officially de-committed from the Volunteers.
Willis was unavailable for further comment as he was driving Wednesday morning to UNC to enroll for the spring semester and begin classes this week.
A UNC official confirmed Wednesday afternoon that Willis had arrived on campus and signed his scholarship letter to officially become a Tar Heel.
