Good size, nice athleticism, and good hands. Those are the qualities you want in all of your team's wide receivers. Eli Wolf has all of those.

Wolf's commitment became official on Sunday, July 27 as he tweeted out his excitement. He is now the eleventh commit to Eastern Michigan, the third offensive player on that list. Rob Pavletich committed as an offensive lineman, Brian Alsobrooks as a quarterback, making Wolf the first wide receiver in the class of 2015.

The only other offer Wolf received was from Jacksonville State.

At 6-foot-4 and 205 pounds, Wolf has good size to add onto a roster that will be losing 6-foot-3 tight end Tyreese Russell after this season, and the only skilled players that are taller than Wolf are tight end Cole Gardener and transfer receiver Jesse Tate. With all of the youth at wide receiver, there isn't a huge need at this position, but this is still a good get for EMU.

His 4.60 40-yard dash time (per Wolf's Hudl profile) isn't awful, especially going into his senior season of high school. With the right training, he could very well bulk up to weight around 210 pounds and improve his 40-time closer to the neighborhood of 4.50. And though there's only so much that can be seen through a highlight tape, Wolf seems to be the type of player that only has two gears. Being able to get that third gear will be huge for as he becomes an incoming freshman in 2015.
