Red Raider transfer target Eric Kumah announces top 6

The Virginia Tech graduate transfer is one of the top wide receivers on the market.

The potential replacement for Antoine Wesley may have played for Tech the last couple seasons, but not the real one.

No, I’m talking about Virginia Tech, and Eric Kumah, the Hokies’ second-leading receiver from last year, has announced his top-6 just a few weeks after entering the graduate transfer market. Check it out:

With 17 wide receivers currently on the roster, 14 of which have already spent at least one year in Lubbock, the Red Raiders aren’t necessarily starving for depth at wide receiver. But Kumah, who caught 42 passes for 559 yards and seven touchdowns last year, would challenge T.J. Vasher for the No. 1 job and would almost certainly beat out Seth Collins for at least the No. 2 position.

If Matt Wells can pull Kumah away from schools like Notre Dame and Penn State, it’ll say quite a bit about his recruiting ability. It’ll also say a lot about Alan Bowman, who’s freshman campaign was nothing short of exceptional despite limited action. Receivers obviously want someone who can put the ball in their hands consistently, and Bowman’s 69.4 percent completion rate means a higher volume of receptions to go around.

It won’t be easy to secure the talents of the 6’2 wideout, but Tech is definitely in the mix.
