"Coach Banks came by the school today," Wolfolk said. "I hadn't really talked much with Illinois before today, but I sent them my highlights a while back."
Wolfolk has some knowledge of Illinois, but he admits he still has a lot to learn about the Midwest program.
"Well, I know that I'm happy they offered me!" he said. "I know that they didn't have the best season but they are in one of the most competitive conferences in the country and have a good coaching staff. They seem to be headed in the right direction."
He continued, "Academically, they are also a very solid university."
Academics will be important to Wolfolk as he evaluates different colleges. Education along with the right fit will eventually determine where he will end up.
"I'm leaning toward business management or entrepreneurship, so I want a school that has a good program in the field I decide to major in," Wolfolk said. "I want to be with a coaching staff I feel comfortable around, a defensive scheme that fits my talents, and a place where I will enjoy living."
As for visits, Wolfolk and his parents are still working to sort out their plans for seeing some of the schools that are interested in him.
"I haven't picked visits yet," he said. "My parents and I will decide soon on some places depending on the financial situation and all that."
