With transfer decisions coming in left and right, it appears Eric Kumah will take his time before choosing his final destination.

The former Virginia Tech wideout was productive in 2018, finishing with 42 receptions for 559 yards and seven touchdowns.

Kumah is a former three-star recruit from the 2016 class. He redshirt during his first year with the Hokies yet quickly made his presence felt for the offense in his sophomore season.

Although there should be a solid amount of programs interested in Kumah, one team is already pulling away from the pack for the upperclassman's services.

Penn State isn't necessarily the favorite to add the graduate transfer, but he did reveal that he'll visit the Nittany Lions in April.

Kumah announced the official date for his visit to Happy Valley on Twitter.

Here is the post:

The Nittany Lions have a plethora of talent in their receiving corps, but James Franklin can use a pass-catcher that can bring experience to the table.

Kumah would be eligible to suit up immediately for Penn State this upcoming season.

Stay tuned.
