Add four-star tight end Jude Wolfe out of St. John Bosco High as the latest Brave to commit to USC.
The class of 2019 prospect is the third player from the program to announce his decision to play his college ball for the Trojans. Wolfe is joining his teammate Chris Steele in USC’s 2019 recruiting class. St. John Bosco junior Kris Hutson also committed recently to the Trojans.
Wolfe, whose 6-foot-5, 249-pound frame suits well for his position, also had offers from some of the nation’s biggest programs, including Alabama, Ohio State and Louisville.
Despite having some big-time suitors, Wolfe made it clear to 247sports.com’s Greg Biggins that Notre Dame, Washington and USC were among his final three schools.
But after sitting down with the Trojans’ coaching staff, the St. John Bosco senior was convinced that USC was where he wanted to be once next fall rolls around.
“I had a good talk with coach (Clay) Helton and realized right then I wanted to be a Trojan. It’s where I can see myself thriving on and off the field so I’m really excited about my decision,” he told Biggins, per 247sports.com.
Interestingly, Wolfe will be coming into the Trojans program at the same time as his Trinity League rival and Orange Lutheran’s star tight end Ethan Rae, who committed to USC back in July, per USA Today High School Sports.
With both Rae and Wolfe in USC’s tight end saddle, it’s safe to say that the Trojans have plenty of depth at that position.
