The graduate transfer market has exploded over the last few offseasons. Teams looking to fill a spot with an immediate-impact player now often look to grad transfers to get the job done.

Virginia Tech wide receiver Eric Kumah is one of the top pass catchers seeking a grad transfer at this moment. Kumah hauled in 42 passes for 559 yards and seven touchdowns for the Hokies last season.

Over the last two campaigns, Kumah made 70 receptions for 883 yards and nine scores. He played in all 13 games in 2016, but did not record a catch.

Thus far, Kumah has set dates for a pair of official visits this spring. He will be at Texas Tech on March 30 and Penn State on April 6.

Another Power 5 program is on Kumah's radar as well. According to his Twitter, Kumah is planning an official visit to Notre Dame.

Kumah is the second Virginia Tech wide receiver to leave the program this offseason. Sean Savoy is the other, and Savoy announced a transfer to Maryland earlier today.

The Hokies finished the 2018 season with a 6-7 overall record.
