The Recruiting Scene: Wolff came out of nowhere at the Wolfpack football camp in late June, but his rare blend of athleticism and versatility immediately landed him an offer from the Pack coaching staff. Seen as a versatile, raw prospect who can play a number of positions, Wolff was wrapped up by State before other schools could jump in on his recruitment. Soon after his commitment to the Pack, UNC came calling, but Wolff never wavered in his pledge to the Wolfpack.

Scouting Report: "Earl Wolff from Hoke County High School is another prospect with a ton of potential. He is extremely well-developed for his age. Wolff has several attributes that helped him an offer from NC State earlier this summer. He has a very impressive initial burst of speed and that is apparent when lining up at running back, on kick returns or at safety. At running back, he shows no hesitation in hitting it upfield and displays a solid burst at the line of scrimmage. On defense, Wolff does a tremendous job of closing on a receiver when the ball is in the air and doesn't shy away from contact. He has dependable hands and his overall athleticism makes him a candidate for offense or defense once he gets to college although safety may be his most likely destination. Wolff is still rather raw and, as a result, has a ton of upside. The fact that he is so versatile will likely have the Wolfpack coaches smiling when he arrives in Raleigh next year." -- Pack Pride Recruiting Analyst Steve Williams
