GAHANNA - Evan Wolf is “joining the family legacy.”

First his father played baseball at Columbus State.

Then older brother Jackson joined the West Virginia program as a pitcher.

Now the Gahanna Lincoln senior is following in their college baseball footsteps after committing to play at Kent State.

“When you’re making a decision like this you’ve got to look at everything,” explained Wolf, whose final two schools were Kent and Penn State. “It’s one of the biggest decisions you’re ever going to make in high school. You have to look at the school, the program, where you live, your relationship with the coaches and teammates, the culture of the school. A lot goes into it.”

A center fielder and pitcher, Wolf’s projectability on the hill was a big part of Kent State’s interest in the 6-0 160-pound right-hander.

“They really like me on the mound,” noted Wolf, who excelled as a two-way early in the summer at the Top Prospect Games. “They like my athleticism in the field and at the plate, but right now the real talk is about me pitching.

“I’m excited about it,” Wolf continued. “I’ve really been working on staying long and loose with my arm and using my legs more. I’m able to create more power with it. I have more movement on pitches I don’t really expect as much as I’m getting and the velo has increased. I’m happy where I’m at right now.”

The 54th-rated senior in Ohio sees plenty he can do for the Kent State program.

“I really feel I can bring a lot of fire and emotion to the team,” Wolf noted. “Being a versatile player, that’s also good for the program. If there is any position open, I will play it and feel I will do it well.”

The idea of being a two-way player remains a possibility in the eyes of Wolf.
