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
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
