Foundation in Blowing Rock, N.C., will make his professional debut Sunday at the U.S. 5K Road Championships in Providence, R.I.
Stilin, who graduated from Princeton University with a degree in aerospace and mechanical engineering, continued his track and field career at Texas and pursued his master's degree in aerospace engineering.
In just his third meet as a Longhorn, Stilin broke the school record in the mile with a time of 3:57.28. The record was previously held by Olympic distance runner and former Longhorn Leo Manzano, who set his mark of 3:58.78 while winning the 2007 Big 12 Championship.
Stilin also holds the school record for the Longhorns in the 3,000 meter run with a time of 7:56.07, set at the Husky Classic, and is the current school record holder at Princeton in the 1,500-and-the-5,000 meter events.
Stilin earned second-team All-America honors at Princeton.
