With Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley on his way to the NFL, head coach James Franklin and McSorley's successor could use some veterans at wide receiver to make the transition easier. Fortunately, one such veteran could become available in a few days.
According to 247Sports, Miami (FL) graduate transfer Lawrence Cager is slated to visit the Penn State campus next weekend.
Cager has a year of eligibility left after playing the past three seasons for the Hurricanes.
The 6-foot-5, 218-pound receiver has been used only sparingly at Miami over the past few years, but has made the most out of the touches he's received.
In 2018, he averaged 17.8 yards per reception on 21 catches with six touchdowns.
Since 2016, he has 45 receptions for 681 yards and ten touchdown catches, with a 15.1 yards per reception average.
Per the report, Penn State's opponents for Cager's signature will be Iowa State, where he is visiting this weekend, along with Kentucky, Ole Miss, Oregon and Virginia.
Penn State will have its leading receiver from 2018, K.J. Hamler, back with the team next season. But beyond Hamler, the Nittany Lions have only limited experience or impact players at the receiver position.
Cager's 374 receiving yards last year would have been second on the team.
