Trey Wolff wanted to be part of the Texas Tech football program so much that he was willing to sacrifice a bit of security to make it happen.
With Houston, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, North Texas State and Massachusetts all showing interest, the 6-foot-4-inch, 185-pound placekicker settled on the Red Raiders as a preferred walk-on, according to the school’s website.
Wolff told the 24/7Sports.com his dream of being a Division 1 kicker dates all the way back to seventh-grade.
“When I made it up to Lubbock again, it just wasn’t even a question,” he added. “I’ve got family living up near Lubbock, which is another plus, the coaches there are awesome, and the players are even better.”
At Klein High School in nearby Spring, Wolff was a unanimous first-team All-District 15-6A honoree as both a kicker and punter and was also named an Academic All-District selection.
At Texas Tech, Wolff is a foundational engineering major.
