The 6-foot-2 guard spent last season at Holy Cross and has three years of eligibility remaining.

Wills, a native of Richmond, Va., joins fellow guards Obi Agbim (Fort Lewis) and Jordan Nesbitt (Hampton), along with center Scottie Ebube (Southern Illinois) and forwards Aboubacar "Abou" Magassa (Saint Louis) and Cole Henry (Northern Iowa) in this new-look lineup.

Wicks and Co. still have one scholarship remaining.

Appearing in 22 games for the Crusaders, including three starts, Wills averaged 5.5 points and an assist per outing. He shot 40.5% from the field and better than 35% from beyond the arc. The Shining Stars Sports Academy graduate poured in a dozen points in a game twice last season. He finished in double-figures six times, including a stretch of four straight in December.

Wills appeared in the movie Shooting Stars and the series Swagger, per his bio on the Holy Cross website.
