West Virginia offer changes the game for in-state prospect Darius Stills

Fairmont Senior defensive tackle Darius Stills has made it clear that he had always wanted a WVU offer. The 6’3 280 lb 2017 prospect had attended numerous WVU recruiting camps including the Showtime Camp on July 23rd.

During that visit Stills, and his younger brother Dante who already held a WVU offer, had the chance to have a one-on-one conversation with WVU defensive line coach Bruce Tall. During that conversation Tall informed Darius that he was impressed with his improvements and would speak to WVU defensive coordinator Tony Gibson about potentially extending an offer.

The problem was Darius felt he had heard this story before and instead of waiting to hear back from WVU committed to Rutgers on July 30th, essentially ending his recruitment. That was until today.

Stills announced via Twitter that WVU had extended an offer. And when asked if this changes anything for the mountain state native he made it very clear, “this changes a lot.”

Update: Soon after this article was published Stills committed to WVU, you can read BGS’s article here.
