Wolf getting a close look from Michigan State

One of the top tight end recruits in the Midwest for the class of 2014 will be Ethan Wolf of Minster High School in Ohio. SpartanMag.com caught up with the 6-foot-6, 238-pound prospect and got the latest details on his recruitment.

Wolf has seen his recruiting stock rise steadily this winter and he now has a solid list of BCS and MAC scholarship offers. Some of the schools which have extended him a scholarship include Cincinnati, Indiana, Illinois and Pittsburgh. In all he has 8 scholarships and numerous teams have been in regular contact. SpartanMag.com asked him about the schools that are currently showing him a lot of interest.

"A lot of schools have been through prior to the dead period," Wolf said. "Schools such as Michigan State, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Indian, Illinois, Stanford and quite a few others stopped by."

Wolf is one of a few select tight ends that the Michigan State staff is closely evaluating for the class of 2014. We asked him about his contact with the Spartans

"Coach Tressel is my recruiter and I have talked with him a few times. He said that the offensive coordinator really likes me and they want me to come visit there sometime soon. I will definitely be going there for a spring practice."

Wolf informed us that he has been to Michigan State before and that he liked what he saw in East Lansing

"I went up there for a game this past fall," he stated. "It is a great place and an awesome college town. We just saw the athletic building which I thought was awesome. Overall I had a great time when was up there."

Wolf is looking forward to learning more about Michigan State University the next time he is on campus. He also hope to build some additional rapport with the coaches and get an overall feel for what it would like to be a Spartan. He talked with us about what he is looking for in a college and when he plans on making his decision.

"I would like to make it prior to my senior season," he said "I really want a school with good athletics and academics. I also want to make sure they have my major which right now I am thinking either sports management or Broadcasting. Location is not a huge factor, but I would like to close to home if I could. Plus the relationship with the coaches will be important too."

Under Head Coach Mark Dantonio the Spartans have a strong track record of putting tight ends into the NFL. Former Spartan tight ends Kellen Davis and Brent Celek are on NFL rosters and Charlie Gant and Brian Linthicum are current free agents. 2012 tight end Dion Sims has decided to forgo his senior year for the NFL draft. The Spartans are known for producing pro-style tight ends that are equally adept at blocking as well as pass receiving.

Wolf is current playing basketball for his Minster team. He informed us that as of right now he is averaging around 10-pound and 8-rebounds a game for his team which is 11-7.He also said his weight is down to about 232 due to running up and down the hard-wood. Look for him to be up over 240 when football season rolls around in Augusts

SpartanMag.com will be sure to keep an eye out for Wolf in the coming weeks. We expect the Spartan staff will be very excited to have him on campus and he will have a great chance of earning a Michigan State scholarship offer at camp this summer if not sooner.
