Elite 2024 4-Star DE Mylachi Williams Taking Pitt OV This Weekend



Mylachi Williams.

It may be the last official visit weekend of the summer, but it certainly isn’t the least. Not with the number of highly-touted recruits that will be in Pittsburgh this weekend.

One of those highly-touted recruits is Mylachi Williams — who will be making his second visit to Pittsburgh.

Williams — a 6-foot-5, 215-pound four-star defensive end from Monsignor Bonner in Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania — will be making his official visit to Pittsburgh from June 22-24, PSN has confirmed.

It will be Williams’ third official visit of June, following a trip to Penn State (June 9) and Syracuse (June 16). Williams has picked up offers from the likes of Boston College, Cincinnati, Colorado, Duke, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Notre Dame, Penn State, Pitt, Rutgers, Syracuse, Tennessee, Texas A&M, USC, Vanderbilt and West Virginia.

His relationship with Pitt really began back on Jan. 20 when the Pitt coaching staff extended him an offer, and obviously, the communication — and a Jan. 21 visit — has led to a chance for an extended stay in Pittsburgh.

It’s not hard to see why Charlie Partridge and Pitt’s coaching staff like Williams either, as he’s a long, explosive athlete who may be bookmarked for defensive end but could play almost anywhere across the football field.

As a junior at Monsignor Bonner last season, Williams racked up 50 tackles, 25 tackles for loss and 11 sacks to help the Friars to a successful season out on the eastern side of the state.

247Sports rates Williams as the 331st-ranked recruit in the class (23-ranked edge and sixth-ranked recruit from Pennsylvania) while On3 rates him as the 205th-ranked recruit in the class (16th-ranked edge and third-ranked recruit from Pennsylvania).

Rivals rates him as the 17th-ranked weakside defensive end and ninth-ranked recruit from Pennsylvania — holding a 5.8 Rivals Rating.

Pitt currently holds commitments from four defensive linemen in the class of 2024, including four-star Jahsear Whittington, three-star Francis Brewu, three-star Zach Crothers and three-star Ty Yuhas, and Williams will be joined by fellow four-star defensive lineman Sincere Edwards during his official visit.
