Kumah's staying busy

Eric Kumah is a prospect on the rise. The 2016 Woodbridge (Va.) Forest Park wide receiver already has two scholarship offers and is attracting interest from several other schools.

"I have offers from Tennessee and Old Dominion," said Eric Kumah. "I've stayed in touch with both those schools and I'm also hearing from Penn State, West Virginia, Clemson, Virginia Tech, UNC, NC State, Ohio State, Maryland and Cincinnati."

Earlier this month, he visited Clemson.

"It was a good visit," said the 6-foot-3, 198-pound Kumah. "I like the coaching staff. They're really nice and they care about their players. I also like the football facilities and enjoyed talking with some of the players."

He was able to talk to multiple members of the Tigers' coaching staff.

"I talked to coach (Dabo) Swinney, (wide receivers) coach (Jeff) Scott and (offensive line) coach (Robbie) Caldwell. They were just talking to me about the camp and the campus. I'm definitely interested in them."

This past weekend, he visited Penn State.

"That was my favorite visit I've taken so far," Kumah said. "We got to tour the campus, which I liked a lot. We also got to watch the camp and talk to some of the players. I like Penn State a lot, so hopefully they'll have another camp. They've already said they want me to come back.

"While I was there, I also got to talk to all the coaches. They all like my size. (Wide receivers) coach (Josh) Gattis is really cool. I like him a lot. I also got to hang out with coach (James) Franklin and he's an exciting guy and fun to be around. He told me to keep working hard in the classroom."

Kumah visited West Virginia the following day.

"West Virginia – my whole family is from there, so it was good to go up there and see the school," he said. "It was a good visit.

"(Wide receivers) coach (Lonnie) Galloway has shown a lot of interest in me. On the visit, we talked a lot. He told me that they liked my film a lot, but that they just want to see me compete in person. I also talked to coach (Dana) Holgorsen for a few minutes and he told me he really wanted me to come back to camp in July, so I'm going back in July."

Besides possible return trips to Penn State and West Virginia, Kumah said he may try to get to Maryland, NC State and Ohio State before the end of the summer.

He is excited about his junior season.

"We want to make the playoffs this year," Kumah said. "We just have to keep working hard."
