WVU Bolsters Defensive Line With Another Transfer Addition

Darel Middleton

West Virginia’s football program continued its work in the transfer arena with the addition of former Tennessee defensive lineman Darel Middleton. Middleton entered the transfer portal on June 30 and will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.

Middleton (6-7, 305 lbs.) adds some much-needed heft to the Mountaineer front, which features a number of mobile, quicker linemen in the 270-280 pound range. He joins Jordan Jefferson (6-2, 312 lbs.) as the only defensive player on the plus side of the 300-pound mark. He played defensive tackle at Tennessee.

Middleton started 12 games over the past two seasons for the Volunteers, recording 43 tackles (3.5 for loss) and two sacks in 22 total contests. He also broke up two passes, forced a fumble and blocked a kick during his time with the Vols.

The Knoxville, Tennessee, native started his collegiate career at East Mississippi Community College, where he had 27 tackles (7 TFLs) for the Lions. He played his high school football at Powell and Oak Ridge High Schools, where he earned All-District and second-team All-State honors as a tight end.

    Yahoooooo !!!!!!   A big body to clog up the middle.  Welcome to the Mountaineer family Mr Middleton.

    I can’t say it enough.  Neal Brown is building this team from the ground up.  It all starts up front on both sides of the ball.
