Virginia Tech graduate transfer Eric Kumah is in the process of finding his new home. This weekend, Kumah visited Notre Dame.

The Fighting Irish are one of six schools Kumah is considering. He also has visits scheduled to Texas Tech (March 30) and Penn State (April 6).

If his Twitter is any indication, Kumah enjoyed himself in South Bend this weekend. He tweeted this morning that it was a "great visit."

Kumah is one of several Virginia Tech players to transfer out of the program this offseason. Another wide receiver, Sean Savoy, is heading to Maryland, where he'll team up with Va. Tech quarterback Josh Jackson, who is also transferring to play for the Terps.

In 2018, Kumah snared 42 passes for 559 yards and seven touchdowns. He caught 28 balls for 324 yards and two touchdowns in 2017.

In 2016, Kumah saw action in all 13 games, but did not record a catch. He will be eligible immediately at his new destination.

Notre Dame is losing top wide receiver Miles Boykin, and while the Fighting Irish have a number of pass catchers returning, led by Chase Claypool and Chris Finke, the team could use a veteran like Kumah to fill a key role.
