Penn State transfer Fatorma Mulbah is officially a Mountaineer, securing some defensive line depth for West Virginia.
The WVU program announced Mulbah signed his grant-in-aid to transfer to WVU on Wednesday. This comes about two weeks after he tweeted his commitment to the Mountaineers. Mulbah made his intentions to transfer known a week prior to committing to WVU.

The Harrisburg, Pennsylvania native received a redshirt in 2020 and then appeared in six games in 2021, registering two solo tackles. He played in 13 games for the Nittany Lions during the 2022 season, but his work was primarily on special teams.
Mulbah picked Penn State out of high school over offers from Temple, UConn, UMass, Navy, Toledo, Bowling Green and Buffalo.
While he was never able to make any major impact for the Nittany Lions, Mulbah could possibly see more opportunities with a WVU team that is lacking depth and has lost a significant amount of players, either to graduation, the NFL Draft or those that decided to transfer.
