WVU has secured one of its biggest transfer additions in defensive back Beanie Bishop. The Minnesota transfer signed with the Mountaineers on Monday, giving West Virginia its second transfer addition of the day.

Bishop was with the Golden Gophers for one season, totaling 29 tackles (20 solo), one sack and one pass breakup while playing in all 13 games. Prior to Minnesota, Bishop spent four years at Western Kentucky, playing in 36 career games. This means he knows what it’s like to be the star of a team and also be apart of a group in a major conference.
