Pitt Target, 2024 4-Star DE Mylachi Williams Making Decision Today



Mylachi Williams.

It’s going to be tough for Pitt to secure a commitment from Mylachi Williams, even after a strong official visit during the last weekend in June, but he’s still a top target in the class.

Williams — a 6-foot-5, 215-pound four-star defensive end from Monsignor Bonner in Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania — will decide between Notre Dame, Penn State, Pitt, Syracuse and Texas A&M later today.

He made official visits to Penn State (June 9), Syracuse (June 16) and Pitt (June 22) in the month of June, and he held 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.

Williams would be an excellent addition to Pitt’s class of 2024, but it doesn’t appear if the Panthers are the leaders in the clubhouse for Williams’ services.

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 while Pitt has missed on a few defensive line targets, four-star defensive lineman Sincere Edwards is a major target going forward, too.
