MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – During his end of season press conference Friday, WVU head coach Neal Brown announced that several Mountaineers have uncertain futures.
First, tight end Jovani Haskins and offensive lineman Adam Stilley have entered the transfer portal.
Haskins, a junior, made four catches this season for 18 yards this season.
Stilley, a sophomore, served as a reserve lineman this season and has not seen the field in two seasons at WVU.
“(Stilley) wants to go play,” Brown said. “He’s done nothing but great work here. I support him in that endeavor.”
Brown also announced that senior wide receiver George Campbell has applied to get an extra season of eligibility from the NCAA. Campbell spent two seasons injured while at Florida State prior to transferring to West Virginia ahead of this season.
Brown said that he expects the NCAA to grant Campbell an extra year, but it will ultimately be Campbell’s decision to come back or not.
“We’re pretty certain that he’ll be approved,” Brown said. “It’s really going to be a decision for him, kind of like a normal junior. When we got George from Florida State, we thought it was going to be a one-year deal. He exceeded expectations for the type of guy he’s been.”
“He ended up second on the whole football team in community service hours, he gave some stability in that receiving room, he was our best special teams player…and then, oh by the way, we got some significant production from him later in the year.”
Campbell finished the season second on the team with 269 receiving yards and led the team with seven receiving touchdowns.
Finally, Brown announced that junior defensive tackles Darius Stills is considering declaring for the NFL draft.
“I’m supportive of the guys, I think it’s fair for them to see how they’re viewed,” Brown said. “We’re supportive of that. We’ve been in contact, I’m going to talk to him again today.”
Stills tied for the team lead in sacks with seven and led the team in tackles for loss with 14.5. He was also named to the All-Big 12 first team.
