Tennessee is officially losing a contributor to a division rival, as Eli Wolf announced his transfer to Georgia today. The 6-4, 225 pound tight end will finish his college career with the Bulldogs after three seasons with the Vols.
Wolf entered the transfer portal last month, receiving a scholarship offer from Georgia shortly after. He will be eligible to play immediately as a grad-transfer.
With Georgia’s immediate need at tight end, Wolf likely has a better chance to contribute for the Bulldogs. Wolf registered just five catches last season for 30 yards, catching one touchdown. In 2017, Wolf had just three catches.
Georgia will visit Knoxville in 2019, which will mark Wolf’s return to Neyland Stadium.
Wolf joined Tennessee as a walk-on in 2015, following his brother Ethan Wolf who was already on the roster. Eli was eventually awarded a scholarship by Butch Jones in 2017 during camp.
Tennessee signed two tight ends in the 2019 recruiting cycle, adding to a crowded room. Sean Brown and Jackson Lowe will join Dominick Wood-Anderson, LaTrell Bumphus, Jacob Warren and Austin Pope on the roster this year.
