Dante Stills

West Virginia’s Dante Stills is one step closer to reaching his goal of playing professional football.

The Mountaineers’ defensive lineman was invited to participate in the NFL combine, as announced on the team’s Twitter account.

The 2023 edition of the event will take place starting Sunday, Feb. 26 and run through Monday, March 6 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana, home of the Indianapolis Colts. This will be the 36th consecutive year the combine will be held in Indianapolis.

Stills will be a part of the first group of position players to be evaluated, as defensive linemen and linebackers are set to report on the first night.

Stills’ invitation to the NFL combine is the second big event he has been asked to participate in, joining the annual East-West Shrine bowl, in which Stills and teammate Bryce Ford-Wheaton will be suiting up on Thursday, Feb. 2 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

He set the WVU program record for tackles for a loss in his fives years as a Mountaineer towards the end of the 2022 season.
