Spring Addition

West Virginia has bolstered its defensive backfield roster with the addition of a highly-regarded prep schooler. The new player will give WVU another option to help offset the key graduation losses of a year ago.

Dwight Fluker-Berry, who originally signed with North Carolina following his 2004 high school senior season, is reporting to West Virginia today after spending the 2005 season at Fork Union Military Academy. Fluker-Berry, who attended Norland High School in Miami, is eligible to play this fall.

After signing with the Tar Heels in February of 2005, Fluker-Berry failed to meet qualifying standards and enrolled at Fork Union. However, following the football season, he left FUMA, and apparently moved on from his UNC commitment.

Fluker-Berry will have four years' eligibility at WVU. The 6-2, 190-pound safety was rated as the #30 post graduate player in the nation by Scout.com.
