Myles Hilliard Commits To Syracuse Over Pittsburgh

Myles Hilliard committed to the Syracuse Orange football program Monday, announcing the news to Scout.com's John Garcia Jr. almost 24 hours before National Signing Day 2012. Myles, who played for Bedford High School in Bedford, OH., chose Syracuse over Pittsburgh, a school he verbally committed to in June. Other schools in the running for Hilliard's services were Michigan State, West Virginia, Minnesota and Akron.

Hilliard (6-foot-6, 26 -pounds) had zeroed in on Syracuse after decommitting from Pittsburgh. When asked by Scout.com's John Garcia Jr why he decided on Syracuse, Hilliard respond "Coach (Doug) Marrone". Hilliard also said he formed relationships with recruiters Tim Daoust and Tyrone Wheatley.

Hilliard also told the Syracuse Post-Standard one of the other reasons for picking Syracuse was because of the departure of former Pitt head coach Todd Graham, who abruptly left for Arizona State after the season.

The addition of Hilliard improves Syracuse Class of 2012 ranking from No. 57 to No. 54, according to Scout.com.
