Name: Atrillion “Trill” Williams
Position: Defensive Back
Hometown: Yonkers, N.Y.
High School: Archbishop Stepinac
2017 Stats: Collected 46 tackles and defended 19 passes (including five picks), while helping lead Archbishop Stepinac to a 10-2 record. On the offensive side of the ball, he also had 534 total yards and 11 touchdowns. Trill returned punts as well.
2018 Projections: He could very well redshirt, though he’s already second on the Syracuse Orange two-deep depth chart right now. Trill has a ton of natural talent, and will be a solid contributor going forward. Perhaps Dino Babers finds a way to use him within the new redshirt rules this year.
How Did He Get Here?: Trill picked ‘Cuse after being heavily courted by Boston College, Rutgers and Ohio State. He also had interest from B1G schools like Penn State, Michigan State and Maryland.
What Did Recruiting Sites Say?: 247 had him at 4 stars and the No. 3 prospect in New York state. Rivals and ESPN had him at 3 stars, so we’re choosing to ignore them for now.
Money Quote: On what he felt when other schools game knocking after he made their radars.
“I already knew where I wanted to go and that was Syracuse.”

Tweets of Wonder: Someone’s got some moves.
What Movie Would Dino Recommend for Him?: We’ve got a few, but I’m going to go dad pun status and Slumdog “Trillionare.” (“Slumdog Millionaire,” if you couldn’t figure that out already).
Interesting Nugget O’Interest: Trill once made the number one play on SportsCenter’s top ten.
