FCS Tight End Lands WVU Offer, Plans to Take Official Visit

The Mountaineers have their eyes on a tight end from Wagner.

West Virginia has a No. 1 option at tight end at Kole Taylor, but they're looking to establish more depth at the position and have his successor in place for the 2025 season.

One name to keep an eye on is Wagner transfer, Justin Wolf. 

The veteran tight end recently received an offer from West Virginia and is in talks with the coaching staff to set up an official visit sometime in April.

"I always knew the advanced the program at West Virginia. The opportunity playing at such a high level is incredible and having a chance playing with an amazing program is something a player dreams for," Wolf told Mountaineers Now. "I was able to talk with Coach (Tyler) Allen for a few weeks before we made anything official, and I was able to create a huge connection with him. I am extremely excited for such an opportunity to compete at a program where they are very supportive for one another."

Wolf is booked throughout the month of March with visits to Kansas State, Syracuse, California, but is "definitely looking forward" to making his way to Morgantown as soon as he can.

Wolf has appeared in 21 games over the last three seasons, catching seven passes for 51 yards and a touchdown. He has primarily been used as an extension of the offensive line as a blocking tight end, but can develop into a solid receiving threat if provided the opportunity. 

There is no timeline for a decision, but Wolf doesn't plan to drag things out entirely too long.

"I have until I graduate which is May. I would like to decide before then, but there is no rush. Once I feel like somewhere is home, that’s when I will know. The visits will definitely give me more of a perspective to see where my home will be."
