MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Per Matt Welch of DKPittsburghSports.com, West Virginia quarterback/wide receiver David Sills is set to transfer.
According to Welch, the 6-foot-4 sophomore from Wilmington, Delaware will continue his collegiate career at El Camino College – at the JUCO level – in California. Sills committed to play football at the University of Southern California (USC) as a seventh grader, but decided to begin his career at West Virginia instead.
Sills’ freshman year at WVU was spent mostly at the wide receiver position, where he saw action in eight games. He caught seven receptions for 131 yards and two touchdowns.
The former four-star recruit stated earlier this year that his heart was set strictly on playing the QB position. With the addition of Florida transfer Will Grier and young signal callers Cody Saunders and Chris Chugunov, Sills’ chances at becoming WVU’s starter following the graduation of senior Skyler Howard have rapidly declined.
“My heart is at quarterback,” Sills said in early 2016. “That’s what I want to do. That’s what I came here to play. I’m trying to keep getting better and better at the quarterback position, but I’m also trying to help the team be a better team and help them at receiver.”
