West Virginia WR Sills to return for senior season

Dec 18, 2017 - 7:22 PM West Virginia wide receiver David Sills V, the national leader in touchdown receptions with 18, will return for his senior season, the school announced Monday.

That news, combined with the return of quarterback Will Grier, who also will be a senior in 2018, will once again give the Mountaineers one of the top pass-catch combinations in the nation.

"It is important to me to finish what I started in the classroom and help our program win a Big 12 championship," Sills said in a statement. "WVU holds a special place in my heart, and I am looking forward to seeing what this team can accomplish next year."

NFLDraftScout.com ranks Sills as the sixth-best junior receiver in the country, giving him a third-round grade at the moment.

Sills had a breakout year after spending the 2016 season in junior college. The 6-foot-4, 203-pound junior has 60 catches for 980 yards, with three games in which he caught three touchdown passes. Sills was one of three finalists for the Biletnikoff Award, which went to Oklahoma State's James Washington.

West Virginia (7-5) will play Utah (6-6) in the Heart of Dallas Bowl on Dec. 26.
