West Virginia has cashed in on the graduate transfer market, yet again.
For the second time in as many weeks, the Mountaineers have picked up a pledge from a graduate transfer prospect, with the latest coming in the form of former UCLA cornerback Denzel Fisher, who announced his commitment on Saturday following an official visit.

Fisher was offered by West Virginia on Friday.
“It’s a real opportunity for me to come in with a leadership role and make an impact with the team,” Fisher recently told EerSports. “They told me they were looking for me to be the guy that’s going to be a leader in that group.”
For a West Virginia secondary that’s especially thin at cornerback this spring, Fisher’s commitment is certainly a welcomed one.
After redshirting during his first season at UCLA, Fisher appeared in 23 games for the Bruins throughout the past three seasons, totaling 30 tackles and 4 pass breakups. He should compete for a starting job immediately upon his arrival in Morgantown, W.Va., in May.
Fisher will have one season of eligibility remaining and will be eligible immediately.
