This week when White Plains, NY native Trill Williams came on Fizz Radio, we learned a lot about the 2018 commit. The running back/corner back hybrid shared why he decommitted from Rutgers, what makes his relationship with Nick Monroe so special and how he became friends with Tommy DeVito.
Below are the highlights from our interview with Syracuse’s second 2018 football commit.
On why he chose SU
“I think Syracuse was a great move for me because they have a great communications program and that’s what I want to do when I go to college. And they’ve got a really good football program under Coach Babers.”
On what position he’ll play
“Whatever they want to do. I’ll do what the team wants. They want to use me both ways and even on special teams.”
On Syracuse’s Junior Day
“It was pretty fun for me and my family. My dad went, my mom went and my little sister went. They just wanted to see how the campus and coaches were in person instead of over the phone. It was big for them to meet in person.”
On Secondary Coach Nick Monroe
“Coach Nick Monroe, he’s like a big brother to me. When he was recruiting me, he was there when I hurt my knee and then afterwards. Syracuse was really the first big school to offer me and they stuck by me when I tore my ACL. That made me also want to go to Syracuse too.”
On his Rutgers decommitment
“When I hurt my knee I felt like I rushed into committing to Rutgers because I was nervous that no school would want to offer me. They still wanted me so I was like this is where I’ll play.”
On Syracuse recruiting in New York state
“In New York, we have a lot of good ballers and teams from say Florida don’t think that New York players can play at a high level, but we’re going to show them that we can.”
On Tommy DeVito
“I’m close friends with Tommy DeVito and Russell Thompson-Bishop. When I first got my offer from Syracuse, Tommy was sort of leading me to Syracuse. I kept in contact with him and we became good friends. Now we’re going to be future teammates.”
