The Kansas Jayhawks continue to add momentum to a stellar Class of 2006. Last evening, Fort Collins, Colorado offensive lineman Ian Wolfe gave the Jayhawk coaching staff his verbal commitment. He chose the Jayhawks primarily over the Wisconsin Badgers.

"Coach (Earnest) Collins from Kansas called me this morning to me Ian had committed," said head coach Eric Rice. "I haven't even spoke to Ian, yet, but I know he had a real good visit to Kansas and enjoyed their coaches. He felt the Kansas coaches were straight forward, good guys. Coach Collins first noticed Ian last year when recruiting (current Oklahoma Sooner) offensive lineman Jon Cooper last year, and Coach Collins is a good evaluator of a talent. I have a lot of respect for Coach Collins."

In talking about Wolfe's game, the consistent theme was footwork.

"The comment I have received from every school is the fact they are impressed with Ian's footwork. He is not chubby, but a lean 275 pounds, and he has outstanding feet. He really has the ability to move, whether it is in pulling, trapping, or taking steps to reach the second level. He has a good, quick first step, overall. I mean he has only given up two sacks while playing here, and those were given up to a defensive end from the state championship team two years ago," stated Rice.

Going a bit further into detail, Coach Rice spoke highly in regards to Wolfe's intelligence.

"Ian is an outstanding student, with a GPA slightly above 3.7, and in his case, his intelligence really carries over to the football field. He has a real good understanding of schemes and what needs to be done. He also knows his assignments, and the assignment of each of his counterparts on the line. Because of his intelligence, he has very good leadership qualities."

Going back to his ability on the field, Wolfe's long arms are also an asset.

"Ian is outstanding in pass blocking with his big long arms. He doesn't lunge, at all. A lot of times you'll see defenders get by with a quick spin move, but is Ian's footwork is so exceptional and he is so quick that he just buries those guys," stated Rice.

Wolfe's sister is currently a student at the University of Kansas.
