Could Pitt be adding a grad transfer wide receiver for the second straight season?
That can’t be answered yet, but they are a contender for a very talented wideout that’s entered the transfer portal.
Pittsburgh Sports Now was able to reach Virginia Tech wide receiver Eric Kumah, who confirmed that he’s been in contact with Pitt’s offensive coaches and that he will indeed be “taking a visit to Pitt sometime this semester.”
Kumah is from Woodbridge, Virginia, and coming out of high school was recruited by current Pitt wide receivers coach Chris Beatty.
Earlier this week, Kumah (6-foot-3, 205) announced that he was placing his name in the transfer portal after his position coach left for another job.
Kumah will have one year of eligibility remaining and will be eligible immediately for the upcoming 2019 season.
Last season for the Hokies, Kumah had 42 catches for 559 yards and seven touchdowns. Considering the instability Virginia Tech had last year at quarterback, those numbers look all the more impressive.
Teams are lining up for Kumah’s services and it has been reported he will also visit Notre Dame, Penn State and Texas Tech.
Kumah tweeted this on Wednesday.
Hail 2 Pitt 🤨
