Minster grad Ethan Wolf has been a longtime starter for the Tennessee Volunteers, and as he prepares for his senior season, he wants to expand on what he’s accomplished in Knoxville.
Wolf has caught 66 passes for 737 yards and 4 touchdowns in his three years, and says it doesn’t matter who the new QB behind center will be, the Volunteers will be explosive.
He also says younger brother, Eli, who’s a redshirt sophomore walk-on tight end, has gotten stronger and will be a “big-time threat” for the Orange and White this fall.
“In the offseason the big thing for him was to get some weight on his body,” Ethan told Tenneessee247Sports, “because it’s frustrating for him and for me to watch him not be able to gain weight. I wish I could give him a few pounds, but I can’t, so I just try and push him as hard as he possibly can and he pushes himself. He’s very self-driven, but he’s gotten very much stronger. He’s strong, but it’s weird. Like he gets stronger, but he doesn’t put on the weight. He’s going to be a big-time threat, I think, (for) this offense that people may not (realize).”
Tennessee opens their schedule on Labor Day, September 4th, against Georgia Tech at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the new $1.6 billion dollar home of the Atlanta Falcons.
