UConn Center Enosch Wolf Will Be Ready for Opener In Native Germany
UConn junior center Enosch Wolf will be ready to go for the Huskies when they open the 2012-13 season against Michigan State at Ramstein Air Base in Wolf’s native Germany.
The 7-foot-1 center is expected to play a big role for the Huskies this year under new head coach Kevin Ollie. With the transfer of Alex Oriakhi to Missouri and the departure of Andre Drummond for the NBA, the Huskies are a smaller team than in year’s past, meaning Wolf and junior forward Tyler Olander will be expected to contribute more than in the past two seasons.
Wolf’s concussion came in practice this week and caused quite a scare, as it is his third concussion in 10 months, leading to concern from the staff and frustration from Wolf himself, who just wants to play.
Hate concussions! Especially 3 in 10 month. I just wanna put that UConn jersey on and play ball!!!

Wolf has two weeks to recover from the concussion syndromes and according to Neill Ostrout at the Journal Inquirer, Ollie expects Wolf to be ready to go. Otherwise, UConn’s main big man will be Tyler Olander, who is built to play power forward, not center. If UConn wants to go big and Wolf was unable to go, then Olander would likely be joined by freshman Phil Nolan.
When he does take to the court, this is expected to be a big year for Wolf, as Dom Amore of the Hartford Courant wrote back in May.
