Fortunately, one such veteran could become available in a few days.According to 247Sports, Miami (FL) graduate transfer Lawrence Cager is slated to visit the Penn State campus next weekend.Cager has a year of eligibility left after playing the past three seasons for the Hurricanes.The 6-foot-5, 218-pound receiver has been used only sparingly at Miami over the past few years, but has made the most out of the touches he’s received.In 2018, he averaged 17.8 yards per reception on 21 catches with six touchdowns.Since 2016, he has 45 receptions for 681 yards and ten touchdown catches, with a 15.1 yards per reception average.Per the report, Penn State’s opponents for Cager’s signature will be Iowa State, where he is visiting this weekend, along with Kentucky, Ole Miss, Oregon and Virginia.Penn State as I have said is looking for a wide receiver. Lawrence Cager is 6-5 and both sides have mutual interests. This kid at 6-5 could turn into star in Penn States offense, had 6 touchdowns for Hurricanes.— Leader Johnson (@WriterLeader247) January 24, 2019Penn State will have its leading receiver from 2018, K.J. Hamler, back with the team next season. But beyond Hamler, the Nittany Lions have only limited experience or impact players at the receiver position.Cager’s 374 receiving yards last year would have been second on the team.last_img read more
