Pitt Community Making Team Effort to Land 5-Star WR Hykeem Williams
In order to have a chance to land a talent such as Hykeem Williams, sometimes it takes more than just the football program itself and the coaches that are recruiting him.
Tuesday, we saw another example of how the Pitt football program and the Pitt community are working together to make an impact on Williams and his family.

Not only is the Pitt football staff working overtime to land Williams, current 2023 Pitt commitments and their families are doing whatever they can to help Pat Narduzzi with this five-star recruit. Pitt four-star quarterback commit Kenny Minchey tweeted this out.
Not only did Kenny Minchey tweet that out, but his mother followed up with this.

Mrs. Minchey wasn’t the only mother of a Pitt recruit that reached out to the Williams family. Three-star defensive back Brice Pollock’s mother, Bridget, had this message.

It remains to be seen whether all of this hard work will pay off for Pitt in terms of a commitment, but no one will be able to accuse Pitt and the Pitt community of doing everything they could to recruit Williams. Currently, he’s scheduled to make this decision at the end of September and will be choosing between Pitt, Georgia, Texas A&M, Miami and Florida State.
I do not use twitter, facebook, tic-toc, etc., so please do me a favor–Let Hykeem Williams know that I truly would like to see him commit to Pitt.
Not just in this case but overall, I don’t think fans should get involved. The last thing I would do is message a young kid. Let the player look at the schools and decide. I think some times fans are too over the top and it may turn a kid off.
