Graduate transfer Eli Wolf fielded questions from the media on Wednesday afternoon and discussed his transition to the University of Georgia after he transferred from Tennessee. Wolf said that quarterback Jake Fromm and fellow tight end Charlie Woerner were instrumental in helping him get acclimated when he arrived in Athens, GA. Wolf also praised running back James Cook, comparing the sophomore to Alvin Kamara.

(On his teammate James Cook)

“Very talented kid, you can see that on the field. He carries himself well, everything about him. He is slippery. Kind of reminds me of Alvin Kamara a little bit. He is a very talented player. He is hard to tackle; he slips in between defenders very well. ”

(On settling in at Georgia and when he felt comfortable)

“It was pretty quick. With Jake [Fromm] and Charlie [Woerner] inviting me in right away to live with them, to get out of the hotel and stay with them. They helped me look for a place with some other teammates. It was not long right after I got here that I felt like family. Everyone just took me in.”

“I met them one visit when I first got here. They came in on Sunday and took time out of their day which showed a lot to me. It meant a lot to me. They are super friendly guys, we just kind of took off from there and they took me right in. It was awesome.”
