The West Virginia Mountaineers have once again used the graduate transfer rules to their favor. This time they have landed the services of former UCLA Bruins cornerback Denzel Fisher. The 6’-1”, 170 pound cornerback will bring a bevy of experience with him to Morgantown. Fisher redshirted his freshman year in 2014 and then appeared in 23 games over the next three years.

The Mountaineer coaches have been looking for immediate help at defensive back after a bevy of spring transfers depleted the West Virginia roster. Fisher recently let on that the coaches were looking at Fisher not only for his experience but for the leadership he could help provide, according to Chris Anderson at EerSports.

“It’s a real opportunity for me to come in with a leadership role and make an impact with the team. They told me they were looking for me to be the guy that’s going to be a leader in that group.”
