The answer to the question whether Enosch Wolf is still with the UConn men’s basketball is a complicated one.
Wolf’s suspension was lifted by the men’s basketball team, but the scholarship was pulled.
Wolf is back with the team, but isn’t on scholarship anymore. Wolf was arrested in February after an alleged domestic incident with his girlfriend.
UConn announced Wolf’s status on Tuesday, about an hour after a report that UConn was set to sign 5th year senior Lazan Krimah from George Washington.
The Huskies would be over the scholarship limit of 13 with Kromah’s addition.
Wolf is invited back next year for his senior year without a scholarship. Here is UConn’s release.
WOLF’S SUSPENSION ENDS
STORRS (May 21, 2013) — Junior Enosch Wolf’s suspension from the University of Connecticut men’s basketball program has ended and he is eligible to return to the team for the 2013-14 season as a non-scholarship player.
Wolf, a 7-1 center from Goettingen, Germany, played in 22 games for the Huskies last season, starting three, and averaged 3.4 points and 3.4 rebounds, while shooting 59.0 percent, in 13.7 minutes per game. His highest-scoring games of the season were 12-point efforts against Wake Forest and North Carolina State.
Wolf had been suspended from the program on Feb. 11, 2013, and he did not participate in the final eight games of the season.
Wolf returned to his home in Germany following the end of the second semester and is expected to make his decision about coming back for his senior year within the next few weeks.
