It’s not often that a college football player can go home again during his playing career, but David Sills has done just that.
Once a highly-touted quarterback prodigy, Sills moved to wide receiver not long after signing with West Virginia in 2015. In June of this year, WVU announced that Sills was moving on to the junior college level “to pursue his dream of playing quarterback.”
Six months later, that dream has apparently come to an end as WVU announced that Sills has come back to the Mountaineers — and is coming back as a receiver.
Last but not least, a familiar face! Welcome back David Sills!

In 2015, Sills caught seven passes for 131 yards and a pair of touchdowns in eight games as a true freshman. In the spring of 2016, head coach Dana Holgorsen allowed Sills to scratch that signal-calling itch and get some work in at quarterback.
In re-signing with WVU, it’s believed Sills will be back with the wide receivers.
Sills is arguably still best known for accepting a scholarship offer from then-USC head coach Lane Kiffin as a 13-year-old seventh grader back in February of 2010. He ultimately decommitted from the Trojans in June of 2014, a few months after Kiffin was canned.
