Fort Collins, Colo., three-star offensive tackle Ian Wolfe and his team lost in the Colorado class 5A state quarterfinals this past week. However, Wolfe said the ride, including a trip to last year's state semifinals, was well worth it. In the end he will have very fond memories of high school career.
Now with the season over, his attention is shifting to recruiting, and the good news for Wolfe is that there is plenty of action.
"I'll probably be going to the Colorado-Nebraska game in Boulder this weekend," Wolfe, ranked as the nation's No. 48 offensive tackle, said. "I'll probably take an official visit there the first or second week in December."
But the Buffs are the only suitors.
"Colorado, Wisconsin (October 21 visit) and Kansas are the three teams I'm looking at right now," he said. "I really liked my visit to Wisconsin. The coaches and the city were great and I had a real good time. At Kansas, I have a sister that goes there so I've been to the campus several times, and I really like the area.
"I don't know much about their football team right now so I am planning on taking a visit there."
Some assume that Wolfe might be leaning toward Colorado since it's the in-state school. Wolfe didn't come out and say that CU led, but he did have some positive things to say about the Buffs.
"At Colorado I have met the coaches and we have a good relationship," he said. "It's close, but not too close like Colorado State would be. Plus, I like how their season is going how their coach is about to sign an extension or something.
"I'll probably be looking at how I act with the coaches and the younger players. The city and the location away from home, too. I can't say I want to stay near Fort Collins."
