WATCH: Randy Moss gives shoutout to WVU WR David Sills on ESPN for incredible catch

West Virginia wide receiver David Sills V is so good, he’s getting recognized by former NFL legend Randy Moss.

Moss works an analyst on ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown. After Sills’ dominant performance against Baylor in Week 8, Moss had to give him some props.

The former NFL All-Pro has a segment on the show called “You got Mossed!” In that segment, he highlights some of the best catches in college football, particularly those where receivers beat their defenders on  jump balls like he used to do.

This week, Sills took the spotlight with his 35-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter against the Bears.

Sills had 7 catches for 136 yards and 3 touchdowns against Baylor, but that catch might have been the most impressive.

The West Virginia wideout now has 15 touchdown catches on the season. That’s 6 more than the next best receiver in the FBS and 7 more than the next best receiver in the Power 5. He also ranks No. 8 nationally in receiving yards per game (105.3).

Moss is from Rand, W. Va., and played college football at Marshall, but that in-state rivalry doesn’t keep him from recognizing a phenomenal grab when he sees it.

He’s just the latest person in the media to praise Sills’ performance this season. Sills was named a midseason AP All-American last week.
