Fairmont Senior defensive tackle Darius Stills woke up Monday morning a Scarlet Knight committing to Rutgers only two days earlier. Despite his best efforts he was not certain that WVU would extended an offer. Little did he know everything would change by the end of the day and he would be the newest commit to the WVU Mountaineers.
Stills told BGS hr received the call from WVU defensive coordinator Tony Gibson saying, “It felt amazing, I always wanted to go to WVU,” of the phone call and subsequent offer. After receiving the offer Stills told BGS, “this changes everything,” and it did.
Soon after the 6’3 280 Rivals two star athlete officially decommited from Rutgers stating:
“Thank you to everyone who has supported me through this recruiting process, it’s had its ups and downs. The recruiting process is based off decisions and you have to do what’s best for you and you family, and family means everything. This isn’t an easy decision to make at all, and I hope all of you guys will support my decision. I am deciding to de-commit from Rutgers University and open up my recruitment again…”
It was not long after Stills made the decision he had always dreamed of making, Darius Stills, son of former Mountaineer great Gary Stills, officially committed to WVU telling BGS, “it’s my dream school.”
Stills became the 13th verbal commitment to the Mountaineers 2017 recruiting class and provides the Mountaineers a much needed talent at the defensive tackle position. Stills will now wait on his younger brother, Dante, to make his decision. Dante currently holds an offer from the Mountaineers as well.
