Tennessee commit announces his high school career is over
A promising recruit who just committed to Tennessee less than three months ago shared some difficult news on Tuesday.
Hudson Wolfe, a 4-star tight end from Savannah, Tennessee (Hardin County), wrote on Twitter that his high school season is over. Wolfe said that he was having microdiscectomy, which is a procedure to repair a herniated lumbar disc and relieve pressure on the spinal nerve column.
Wolfe shared a picture of himself from a hospital bed, and added, “This is not how I wanted to end my high school career. I hate not being on the field with my team.”
Wolfe declared that he would have the mentality of a professional when he begins rehab, and he is more committed and determined to work to reach his goals now. Wolfe still plans to be on campus in January ready to join the Tennessee program.
Tennessee beat out Alabama, Ohio State and Ole Miss, among many others, to land Wolfe’s commitment.
Wolfe is considered the No. 5 player in Tennessee in this year’s class, and the No. 7 tight end in the country, according to the 247Sports Composite.
