2021 four-star tight end Hudson Wolfe is one of the Tennessee Vols’ top recruiting targets.
He’s also a top target of numerous other programs, including heavy hitters like Alabama, Georgia, and Ohio State.
Wolfe, 6-foot-6/240 lbs from Savannah, TN, is rated in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 6 player in the state of Tennessee and the No. 9 tight end in the nation.
Rivals national recruiting analyst Mike Farrell recently updated Wolfe’s recruitment. Here’s what he had to say:
Ohio State has long been considered the leader here but the Vols have done a great job making up ground. I feel that Tennessee has the edge now and Ole Miss could be second as Ohio State has fallen a bit.
You can never count out the Buckeyes, but it should be encouraging for Vols fans that Farrell views Tennesse as having the edge right now.
Of course, recruiting is fluid and one visit (whenever those crank back up) could change everything.
One thing, however, is certain — whoever lands Wolfe will be getting a future stud.
247Sports director of scouting Barton Simmons describes Wolfe as a “very competent tight end that has the look of a consistent Power Five starter and a body type that presents some positional versatility”.
Simmons also noted that Wolfe “has plus feet and fluidity for a long body” and “flashes some catch-and-run athleticism”.
Rivals said a commitment “could be coming very soon” for Wolfe. They also mentioned that Ole Miss and Lane Kiffin could be a dark horse candidate to land Wolfe, though I can’t see the Rebels signing Wolfe over Ohio State or Tennessee.
