Transfer Trail

The West Virginia football program is in line to add another transfer addition to the program, one day ahead of the start of summer camp.

Former Vanderbilt defensive end Darien Bryant will walk on at West Virginia, a source close to the situation has confirmed to BlueGoldNews.com.

Bryant, who graduated from Vanderbilt in May, would be immediately eligible at West Virginia and have two years of eligibility remaining. The same source also confirmed Bryant arrived in Morgantown on Wednesday and is scheduled to participate in camp, which begins on Thursday.

The 6-foot-4, 230-pound Bryant is believed to be anticipating a position change with the Mountaineer program. After being recruited as a wide receiver out of Pickerington North (Oh.), Bryant made the switch to defensive end upon arriving at Vanderbilt.

Bryant was rated a three-star prospect by Scout.com and the 57th best tight end in the country. He earned offers from Michigan, North Carolina, Duke, Purdue, Vanderbilt and Maryland among others.

He is the latest transfer to enter the mix within the Mountaineer program. As BlueGoldNews.com first reported last week, West Virginia is in the process of adding former Pittsburgh and Kentucky transfers Chris and Demitrious Davis. They also plan to walk on to the program, though their initial eligibility still remains unknown. The twins spent a redshirt year at Pitt in 2012, then were enrolled but did not play at Kentucky in 2013.
