Hudson Wolfe decommits from Tennessee football

Hudson Wolfe has reopened his commitment.

Wolfe, who is the No. 6 college prospect in the state and No. 7 tight end in the country according to the 247Sports Composite, announced he was decommitting from Tennessee on Thursday.

Wolfe is a four-star tight end.

Wolfe committed to Tennessee on June 15. He was the sixth-highest recruit in this year's recruiting class at No. 216 overall.

He had offers from 13 of the 14 Southeastern Conference teams heading into his decision. In March, Wolfe narrowed his choices down to five – Alabama, Georgia, Ole Miss, Tennessee and Ohio State – and shortly thereafter talked about why each of the five were on his list.

Alabama is the school that Wolfe visited the most before COVID hit with eight visits, including four times to watch a game. Ole Miss was the school that Wolfe felt utilized the tight end position the best with head coach Lane Kiffin.

Wolfe, a 6-foot-6, 240-pound athlete, did not play at Hardin County this season after having a microdiscectomy, which is a minimally invasive procedure for a herniated lumbar disc. The surgery was to relieve back issues.

His decision comes six days before the early signing period begins.

Wolfe had 27 catches for 471 yards and 12 touchdowns as a junior to help Hardin County reach the Class 4A state quarterfinals in 2019.
