National Signing Day 2016: DT McKinley Williams Commits to Syracuse

Williams committed to Syracuse during the crazy whirlwind weekend when nine guys committed all at once.

McKinley Williams comes courtesy of the same high school as Kenneth Ruff and helps provide some depth along the defensive line for the Syracuse Orange.


High School: Dillard High School, Fort Lauderdale, FL

Position: DT

Stats: 6'4", 245 pounds

Main Recruiter: Nick Monroe

Commitment Date: 1/23/16

Ratings: 24/7 (2), Rivals (2), Scout (3)

Other Offers: Pitt, Middle Tennessee and Idaho


Player Breakdown: Williams is undersized for a defensive tackle, but he has the frame to add weight and strength. Syracuse needs depth on the defensive line but that doesn't mean everyone has to play right away. Williams could be a good project to develop in the meantime.
