Former UCLA corner back Denzel Fisher has been granted his permission to finish his collegiate eligibility elsewhere. Today, after rumors had been floating around, it was announced by Fisher himself via Twitter that he has received an official offer from West Virginia and has an official visit scheduled to Morgantown.
Fisher played in 7 games last year recording 11 tackles and recorded 31 tackles over his three years with the Bruins. West Virginia seems to be the early favorite to land him, but I would expect a few other schools to jump in on this grad transfer. Defensive coordinator Tony Gibson just filled a scholarship vacancy by adding USC defensive line grad transfer Kenny Bigelow Jr., which was left by Lamonte McDougle. Adding a corner with game experience will add much needed depth to a defense that is not only very thin in experience, but lacks scholarship players.
Fisher has one year of eligibility remaining.
