Penn State's wide receiving corps has plenty of talent, but there is a dearth of experience with which new position coach Gerad Parker is able to work. Apparently, the Nittany Lions could potentially address this on the graduate transfer market, as evidenced by a visit that it lined up for a little later this year.

Virginia Tech wide receiver Eric Kumah announced on his Twitter account that he's scheduled a trip to Happy Valley in April. Kumah is a graduate transfer and would be eligible to suit up immediately.

Kumah decided to place his name in the NCAA's transfer portal earlier this week, writing a letter on his Twitter account stressing that the move was partly the result of his position coach, Holomon Wiggins, accepting the same position at the University of Alabama. A three-star recruit in the class of 2016, Kumah, a native of Forest Park, Va., committed to the Hokies and held offers from a handful of schools, including Boston College, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Miami, and Pitt. This will not be his first visit to State College either. Despite not holding a Nittany Lion offer, Kumah visited Happy Valley back in 2014 with DT Tim Settle.

After redshirting his freshman campaign in Blacksburg, he 6'2 Kumah accrued 70 receptions for 883 yards and nine touchdowns in two years. Last season, Kumah was tied for eighth in the ACC with seven touchdown grabs.
