Back at the Starting Line

In 2010, David Sills was a 13-year-old, seventh-grade quarterback prodigy when he became one of Lane Kiffin's most notable commits at USC. But Kiffin was fired five games into his fourth season, in '13, and Sills instead enrolled at West Virginia, where he was promptly moved to receiver. After his freshman year Sills transferred to El Camino (Calif.) junior college to play QB, and he threw for 1,636 yards and 15 touchdowns in 10 games this season. Now Sills is transferring back to Morgantown, and Kiffin, who spent the last three years as Alabama's OC, takes over at Florida Atlantic. They are once again head coach and QB, but separately and a long way from Southern California.
