Vols tight end intends to transfer to UGA

Former Tennessee football captain and tight end Eli Wolf has announced he’s transferring to Georgia.

Wolf will count against UGA’s 2020 class and will play for the Bulldogs this coming season after graduating from Tennessee in May.

Wolf, a graduate transfer, announced his decision on Twitter, writing in part “My decision to play my final year of eligibility at Georgia is a combination of many things, but first and foremost it was best for my future.”

The 6-foot-4, 236-pound Wolf was used primarily as a blocker last season under first-year head coach Jeremy Pruitt. He caught five of the six passes thrown his way last season.

The Bulldogs are looking to replace departing junior tight end Isaac Nauta and transferring freshman Luke Ford. UGA returns two healthy tight ends, rising senior Charlie Woerner and redshirt freshman John FitzPatrick.
