Ethan Wolf’s main focus right now is basketball, but the 2014 Ohio tight end knows that recruiting never stops.
“Everything is going good,” the Minster High School (Minster, Ohio) standout said.
“We’re in the midst of basketball season right now. We have a couple regular season games left and then we go to the tournament. When we’re done with that, we’re going to start getting into spring practices and stuff like that.”
Wolf currently holds offers from Cincinnati, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Pittsburgh among others. He’s also receiving interest from several other BCS schools, including Notre Dame.
“Actually they talked to my coach this week,” Wolf said of the Irish. “They asked for my height and weight. They watched my film and they said they really liked it. They said they were going to get back in contact sometime in the next three or four days and let me know their thoughts on it and stuff like that.”
Wolf currently stands at just over 6 feet, 5 inches and is weighing in at 235 pounds. He’s looking forward to hearing back from Notre Dame assistant Mike Elston.
“I’m really excited about it,” he said. “I’m really looking forward to seeing how the next couple days play out and see what happens.”
An offer from Notre Dame would play a big role in Wolf’s recruitment.
“It would affect it a lot,” he said. “I don’t have any favorites yet, but they’re a top-notch program. There are a lot of good schools out there academically, but I’ve liked them since I was a kid and it’s a great school honestly.”
Wolf is concentrating on basketball, but does have some unofficial visits coming up.
“We haven’t had any time with basketball, but Feb. 23rd, we’re going down to Louisville and Kentucky,” he said. “We’re going to try to get to Notre Dame’s Junior Day and a spring practice at Indiana and a bunch of spring practices that aren’t fully planned yet.”
Wolf would like to have a decision before the start of his senior season, but isn’t going to make one until he’s ready.
“It’d be nice, but I’m not going to rush any decisions. I’d like to have it done by then, but if not, it’s not the end of the world.”
