Syracuse football received its second Class of 2018 commitment after in-state three-star athlete Atrilleon “Trill” Williams announced his decision to join the Orange on Twitter Monday evening.

Williams, who plays both running back and cornerback, is rated three stars and the No. 73 athlete in the country and the No. 10 athlete in New York by 247Sports. He reportedly runs a 4.43-second 40-yard dash, according to 247Sports.
The 6-foot-2, 180-pound athlete recently finished his junior season at Archbishop Stepinac (White Plans, N.Y.) High School. Williams chose Syracuse after decomitting from Rutgers two months ago. He has also received offers from Boston College, Temple and UMass, among others.
Syracuse currently only has two defensive backs who are 6-foot-2 or taller on its roster, redshirt freshmen Devon Clarke and Anthony Lombardi. Williams would also be Syracuse’s tallest running back.
Last August, Williams earned Defensive MVP honors at the New York vs. New England All-Star Challenge, which featured several of the top New York and New England football prospects competing in 1-on-1 drills and 7-on-7 games.
Williams joins fellow in-state commit Gabe Horan as the only two members of Syracuse’s 2018 recruiting class. As Syracuse.com’s Stephen Bailey pointed out, Syracuse now has more New York scholarship players committed (2) than on the current roster (1).
