After an impressive junior season at Virginia Tech, wide receiver Eric Kumah is poised to take his talents elsewhere. Whether he decides to take those talents to Notre Dame at South Bend remains to be seen.
According to NDInsider, the Fighting Irish are slated to host Kumah this weekend. Kumah is already on the verge of leaving the Hokies as a graduate transfer.
Kumah is coming off of his best year at Virginia Tech. He finished last season with 42 catches for 559 yards and seven touchdowns – all career highs – and was second on the team in all of those categories.
He announced the visit to South Bend last month:

He had four of those receptions for 48 yards and a touchdown in Virginia Tech’s loss to Notre Dame on October 6, 2018.
In two seasons with the Hokies, he has 70 receptions for 883 yards and nine touchdowns, with a 12.6 yards per catch average.
Notre Dame is not the only school Kumah has his eyes on though. Per the report, he has visits scheduled with Texas Tech and Penn State.
Coming out of high school in 2016, Kumah was a three-star prospect. He was the No. 564 prospect in the country, the No. 90 wide receiver in the country, and the No. 15 prospect from the state of Virginia, per 247Sports.
Notre Dame is already set to bring in several grad transfers this coming season, though unlike many of them, Kumah has not missed significant time due to injury.
