Darius Millines no longer committed to West Virginia (or anyone else) 

By Jason Lieser

American Heritage wide receiver Darius Millines de-committed from West Virginia, but could still sign with the Mountaineers next week. He also might land at Illinois or Marshall.

Millines committed to West Virginia on a visit in September and said last month he was not considering any alternatives. That changed, of course, when West Virginia assistants Doc Holliday and Jajuan Seider went to Marshall.

Holliday, now the Thundering Herd’s head coach, got Millines to come up to Huntington, W.V. for a visit and there were reports that Millines committed to Marshall on the trip.

Millines (6-0, 175, 4.40, No. 16 on The Big Board) said today he is not committed to West Virginia, Marshall or any other school.

“I’m still open,” he said. “I don’t know now where I’ll go, but I’ll be signing on signing day. I don’t know right now.”

Millines visited Illinois over the weekend and said he liked it enough to include it among his three finalists. He went to Marshall earlier this month.

He said West Virginia coaches are scheduled to visit him at school tomorrow or Thursday.

Millines said today the departure of Holliday and Seider from West Virginia did not influence his decision (though that contradicts comments he made to The Herald-Dispatch), but declined to get into specifics when asked why he de-committed.

“It’s a long story,” he said. “But they still want me and it is a possibility.”

All commitments are non-binding. No player is locked into a school until he signs a national letter of intent. The first day seniors can sign is Feb. 3, national signing day.

Millines, who played quarterback last year, threw for 466 yards and two touchdowns, while running for 605 yards and eight touchdowns during the regular season. He led the Stallions to their second state championship in three years.
