Charges Against Enosch Wolf Dropped

Charges against UConn basketball player Enosch Wolf related to an on-campus domestic dispute in February were dropped on Wednesday.

In a brief hearing at Rockville Superior Court, Judge Sheila Huddleston agreed that Wolf had completed his counseling and other measures ordered through a diversionary program by Family Court.
“I’m happy that the court part is resolved,” he said.  I still have to focus on my schoolwork, get all my finals done. I will keep staying in the counseling for myself, just because it has a positive effect on me.”

Whether Wolf, a 7-foot-1 center from Germany, is allowed to return to the Husky hoops program is still in question. Head coach Kevin Ollie said last week that a decision will be made around the end of the spring semester, which is a few weeks away.

Wolf has been on indefinite suspension since being arrested in a UConn dorm room on Feb. 11. He was charged with burglary in the third degree, criminal trespass in the first degree and disorderly conduct after an incident with his girlfriend. According to a police report, Wolf refused to leave his girlfriend’s apartment when he was asked to and grabbed the hair of the victim and pushed her head.

Wolf also knocked the glasses off her face with his hand and continued to remain in the apartment until he was arrested.

“Enosch has learned how to address alcohol, which was an important part of the equation,” said his attorney, Rob Britt. “What I’ve seen in him is a decision-making process that involves prolonged thought. It’s much less spontaneity, there’s more of a contemplation of what’s in front of him, and what his actions have cost him. I don’t think he wants to make any mistakes like that in the future.”

Britt added that he “can’t give you a more positive remark” than the fact that Wolf has decided to stay in counseling on his own accord.

Wolf, a junior, said “it hurts” that he had to miss UConn’s final eight games of this past season due to his suspension.

“I’m here to play basketball, my passion is to play basketball,” he said. “I love basketball. When I can’t be out there to play with my teammates, it’s painful. I did this to myself, and it’s a big lesson learned.”
