Maverick Wolfley Makes Transfer News Official
Maverick Wolfley, a Morgantown native and WVU legacy, has officially transferred.
After news broke weeks ago about the imminent transfer of fullback/tight end Maverick Wolfley, the Morgantown, W.Va., native confirmed that he will be playing at Akron.
At 6-3, 225 pounds, Wolfley will switch from fullback to linebacker at Akron, a position that he likely fits better at.
“All I want to say is thank you to the state of West Virginia. For supporting me even though some think I didn’t deserve it,” Wolfley told BGS. “But everyone who did and messaged me all the time saying kind things I appreciate it a lot. I’m sad I had to leave for things to work out but I’m happy now. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. I really didn’t want to. But you gotta do what you gotta do. And West Virginia will always be home to me. And want to say thank you to Coach Holgs who gave me the opportunity to play when I was only a freshman. That meant a lot to me. I’ll never forget it.”
Wolfley’s brother, Stone, remains with the team. Their father, Dale, was a former offensive lineman with the Mountaineers, and now serves on the team’s game day staff in addition to coordinating many alumni events for the university. Wolfley’s uncle, Ron, was a standout fullback at WVU who went on to have a 10-year NFL career. His grandfather, Ray Mansfield, also an offensive lineman, started at the University of Washington and then played 14 years in the NFL.
