USC loses veteran pass-catcher to transfer portal
USC tight end Jude Wolfe announced on Friday he is entering the transfer portal and leaving the program after five seasons.
“I would like to start by thanking all of my head coaches, position coaches, and teammates I’ve worked with over the last five years,” he wrote in a post shared on social media. “Thank you to all of the medical, training, and strength staff for providing me with excellent care and getting my health back to 100%. I am forever grateful to The
University of Southern California for giving me the opportunity to earn both a Bachelor’s and a Master’s Degree.
“Above all else, I want to thank God for blessing me with a loving family, supportive friends, and for all of my abilities, especially overcoming adversity. After thoughtful prayer and discussion with my family, I have decided to enter my name into the transfer portal.”

Wolfe began his career in 2019. Over his five years with the program, injuries have been a consistent obstacle in front of him.
A back injury slowed him during the spring of 2019 and then redshirted during the season. He appeared in four games in 2020 before a broken foot ended his season.
That injury kept him out of spring ball in 2021, but he was able to become a key part of the rotation during the season. He appeared in a career-best 11 games and made eight catches for 56 yards.
A summer injury limited him to three appearances late in the 2022 campaign.
This season, he made 11 appearances, brought in two receptions for 5 yards, and scored his first career touchdown in the win over Colorado on Sept. 30.
He’ll leave USC with one season of eligibility remaining.
