Pitt Reaches Out to Recent Illinois De-Commit Jeremiah Williams



Jeremiah Williams

Pitt men’s basketball reached out to experienced guard Jeremiah Williams, as they look to fill out their roster ahead of the 2023-24 season.

Jeremiah Williams, an Iowa State transfer who recently de-committed from Illinois. Williams told Pittsburgh Sports Now that in the past two days, he has heard from Pitt, Arizona State, Wichita State, St. Bonaventure, Middle Tennessee, Sam Houston State, and San Jose State.

The Chicago native began his college career at Temple, before transferring to Iowa State. However, he tore his Achilles last year, sidelining him for the entire season. He is a 6-foot-4 guard who averaged 9.5 points per game two seasons ago for Temple as a sophomore.

His eligibility situation does not seem to be certain yet, as he has already transferred once before. Williams will likely apply for a waiver for immediate eligibility for this upcoming season.

As the Panthers try to fill their last scholarship for next season, they have been reaching out to experienced guards from all over.

Pitt recently reached out to West Virginia transfer Joe Toussaint as well in its pursuit of a veteran in the back court.

The current back court situation for Pitt includes  freshmen Jaland Loweand Carlton Carrington, redshirt freshman Dior Johnson, as well as Rhode Island transfer, junior Ishmael Leggett.

If he joined Pitt, he would serve as the third transfer to join the program, along with High Point junior forward Zack Austin and Leggett.
