The Mountaineers will face a familiar face on the football filed for the next two years as former WVU offensive lineman Josh Sills announced his transfer to Oklahoma State.
Sills’ announcement came Tuesday morning on his Twitter after spending the last four seasons with the Mountaineers.

The 6-foot-6, 326-pound redshirt junior started 13 games in 2017, 12 in 2018. He transitioned from guard to center to start the year but moved back to guard after one game. In the team’s second game of the season, Sills suffered a season-ending shoulder injury, which required surgery.
Briason Mays and Chase Behrndt manned the center position throughout the year while Behrndt, Mike Brown, James Gmiter and John Hughes played at guard throughout the season.
With Sills’ departure and the graduation of Colton McKivitz and Kelby Wickline, WVU lost three of its most experienced offensive linemen.
Coaches worked to fill the loss at this position with its 2020 early-signing day class and hope to continue to address it through the February signing Day or with a graduate transfer.
On Dec. 18, the team added Chris Mayo, a four-star prospect, Zach Frazier and Jordan White, three-star prep prospects and Tairiq Stewart, a three-star junior college player.
According to Stills’ announcement, he will have two seasons to play for OSU while completing his Masters in Agriculture. This means Sills has been granted a medical redshirt due to his 2019 season-ending injury.
