In recent years Tennessee has become known for producing quality wide receivers. It seems the Volunteers may have been the first to find another good, young pass catcher again in Eric Kumah. Tennessee is the first school to offer freshman wide receiver from Woodbridge (Va.) C. D. Hylton.
"I was excited for it but I need to keep working hard," said the 6-foot-2, 180-pound Kumah. "They came to talk to me during school about two or three weeks ago.
"I haven't really done any research on Tennessee but I've seen them play on TV before and I know they're in the SEC," he said. "Once I talked to the coach that one time I haven't really talked to him since. It's just my first offer and I haven't done any research yet."
Even though Kumah has not started to get interest from other schools, there is one that he really likes.
"I was always a fan of West Virginia because that's where my family is from," Kumah said. "It's a school that's close to home so I'd like to go there right now.
"I'd like to go to West Virginia because they're really close and my friend's cousin went there and said it was a good school if I like to be close to family but I haven't been able to talk to any of those coaches but I have seen a game," he said.
Kumah does not have plans to visit any schools this offseason.
