Enosch Wolf will reportedly leave UConn to return home

Streeter Lecka

It looks like Enosch Wolf is officially out at UConn, as Sportando.net is reporting that the 7-foot-1 center has signed a pro contract with Telekom Baskets Bonn of the German Basketball League, the country's premier league. An official announcement will be made soon, the report said.

The news hardly comes as a surprise, as Wolf was recently taken off scholarship to make room for transfer Lasan Kromah, and in order for him to return to the team as a walk-on for his senior year, he would have had to pay $48,000 in tuition with no chance of financial aid.

The move would also be a homecoming for Wolf, who hails from Goettingen, Germany, which is only about a three hour drive from his new club in Bonn.

Wolf's status with the Huskies was already questionable due to his arrest in February following an altercation with a female in which he reportedly refused to leave her apartment and then grabbed her hair and pushed her head. Wolf was charged with 3rd-degree burglary, criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct, and wound up being suspended for the remainder of the season.

The charges against Wolf were eventually dropped, but when the school announced that he would not remain on scholarship, it was evident that his days in Storrs were numbered. Wolf himself hinted that he might be leaving on Monday, when he tweeted "excited about this new chapter in my life!" The expectation would be that he would sign a pro contract overseas rather than transfer to another school and have to sit out a year.

During his junior year, Wolf averaged 3.4 points and 3.4 rebounds in 22 games before he was suspended indefinitely following his arrest. Over the course of his career, Wolf averaged 2.3 points and 2.4 blocks in three seasons with the Huskies and was a member of the 2011 National Championship team, though he rarely played during the team's run to the title.

In the end, what do we make of Wolf's time here with the Huskies? He hardly played his first two years before he slowly began to become more of a factor this year, but then he was arrested and that was the end of that. Is he a bust or just another guy who came and went? I'm honestly not sure. Feel free to weigh in down in the comments.
