New York safety Jalen Williams picks Pitt

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

The Panthers add their second verbal commitment to the 2014 class.

Pitt received some good news this morning as three star prospect, Jalen Williams, verbally pledged to play for Pitt over Syracuse, Buffalo, and Temple. Williams is a 6-2 180 pound safety from Newburgh, New York. He is rated as a three star by both Rivals and Scout. Rivals lists him as the 6th best prospect in the state of New York, while Scout names Williams as the 68th best Safety in the country.

Williams is just the second player to commit to Paul Chryst for the 2014 recruiting class, and as we have mentioned before, the class is off to a slow start. Still, Williams fills a need, as you always need depth in the defensive backfield. New York is not typically a hot spot for recruiting, but it has given the Panthers Jahmahl Pardner and Alex Officer in recent recruiting classes.

Williams is not highly rated, but he will join a depleted Safety unit in 2014 after Jason Hendricks graduates. At this point, Pitt and their fans can not be too picky with who commits to the Panthers. This recruiting class is off to a slow start, but Williams could be a hidden gem. Welcome to Pitt, Jalen!
