Remember David Sills, the once famous seventh-grader that was a USC quarterback commit?

Boy, how things have changed. Skyler Howard is the man under center for West Virginia, where Sills now plays. But with his athleticism, Dana Holgorsen and the coaching staff wants to find a way to get him on the field somehow. So, he'll be getting more playing time at wide receiver. 

After all, he caught a 35-yard touchdown last week.

“David went in and competed,” WVU receivers coach Lonnie Galloway told MetroNews' Allan Taylor. “He wanted to play, so we worked him in the rotation. He’s a great athlete and he wanted to play.”

Sills looked like a natural against Baylor despite limited experience.
