Henderson County’s Wolfe commits to Cats

If a Yahtzee is five of a kind, Kentucky is just one offensive lineman short of officially having one.

The Cats landed their fourth offensive lineman in three days when Henderson County’s Mason Wolfe tweeted that he’s committed to the Cats, alongside a picture of himself and his father with Coach Mark Stoops, offensive line coach John Schlarman and offensive coordinator Neal Brown.

Wolfe, a 6-foot-5, 270-pounder from Henderson, is listed as a three-star prospect by both Rivals and Scout. Rivals listed him as having interest from schools like Purdue, Louisville, Missouri and California.

Wolfe joins three other offensive linemen who committed to Kentucky on Saturday after taking unofficial visits and seeing the Cats practice and run through a partial scrimmage that morning.

The others include Levon Livingston, a 6-foot-7 player who also has played some defensive linemen, but told the Herald-Leader he prefers to play offensive tackle.

The others are Larry Wells (6-10, 330) out of Ohio and Logan Stenberg (6-6, 330) from Alabama also committed.

Stoops, who can’t comment on players until they sign, was asked on Monday morning about the influx of commitments this weekend.

“We’ve been doing a nice job of getting guys on campus,” Stoops said. “We got some good kids here unofficially and spent some good time with them. Our coaches have done a really nice job of getting prospects on campus and getting them around our players and around our coaches, so it’s going well.”
