KNOXVILLE, TN- A product of Dobyns Bennett High School, Hunter Wolfe comes to Rocky Top having spent a redshirt 2016 season at Walters State Community College in Morristown, Tennessee. Voted a Big 7 Conference Player of the Year during his senior season at Dobyns Bennett in 2015, Wolfe also earned Tennessee Sports Writers Association, TBCA, Tennessee Baseball Report First Team All-State and All-Region honors while helping his school to a regional title. He hit .475 with 11 doubles, six triples, seven home runs, 36 RBI and 56 runs scored for the Indians and struck out just seven times in 140 plate appearances that season, including a 28-game hitting streak.
Thomas on Wolfe: “Hunter is a plus defending shortstop who complements his defense with a good offensive skill set. He will be able to impact the game both offensively and defensively. He is a sure-handed defender with great range and a very strong arm. Offensively, he has gap strength with the ability to hit the ball out of the park at times and has the speed to be a front line base stealer.”
