Last week, David Sills aka the Baby Quarterback, committed to West Virginia, ending the long saga that started with his commitment to USC as a seventh-grader.
The move was expected and I won’t say Lane Kiffin’s reputation was tarnished because it’s already well beyond that stage. The comments that stand out today are those of Sills’ quarterback guru, Steve Clarkson, who was involved in the commitment to USC.
On social media last week, Clarkson’s called Sills the “perfect quarterback.” He also referred to him as the “golden ticket” for West Virginia. It took nearly five years for the commitment to USC to prove worthless. Now we can wait-and-see if those grand compliments come to fruition at West Virginia.
