The Syracuse football class of 2018 picked up its second commitment tonight, and it’s another in state victory for Dino Babers and the Orange. Trill Williams, a dynamic athlete who the Syracuse coaching staff likes as a defensive back, has decided to pledge to the Orange.

Williams, a 6-foot-2 defensive back from White Plains, had previously pledged to Rutgers before backing off of that commitment following a visit to Syracuse. He also holds offers from the likes of Boston College, Pittsburgh, and Temple, and was drawing significant interest from Penn State.
The Orange previously picked up a pledge from Baldwinsville tight end Gabe Horan (who likely projects as an offensive tackle), and picking up another in state product shows a real commitment by Dino Babers and his staff to keep the best talent home. Other in state players Syracuse has heavy interest in include Stevie Scott and Qadir White, among several others.
Williams is a terrific pickup for the Orange. He’s an exceptional athlete who will not only help in the secondary, but could wind up being a major contributor in the return game, as well.
