Three-star defensive tackle Myles Hilliard (Bedford, Ohio) has flipped his commitment from Pittsburgh to Syracuse, multiple sources report.

Hilliard and his father both cited former head coach Todd Graham's departure as the impetus behind his decision to decommit from the Panthers, according to the Post-Standard.

The 6-foot-5, 240-pounder also had offers from Akron, Ball State, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Cincinnati, Michigan State, Minnesota, Ohio, Toledo, West Virginia and Western Michigan.

Hilliard runs well for his size, as he ran a sub-5.0 40-yard dash on the combine circuit.
