He tweeted over the summer that he had lost like 30 lbs, now it looks like he needs to put some muscle on

Getting stronger would be good, but he just has to get faster or he is never going to see the court at UConn. Hopefully he will be healthier and better able to get back on defense.

I saw Wolf like two weeks ago practicing at Gampel and I had to ask the guy next to me if it was him just to make sure. He looks completely different

Yup, I saw last month Wolf for the first time since last season. He was working hard, and you could tell he was working all summer. He grew his hair a little longer and lost alot of weight. You could tell by the thickness of his neck.

Yea I'm hoping the weight loss and improved conditioning will help his movement out there on the court because if he is actually as slow as he looked last year I don't see how he would be able to contribute.

Did any of you read the following article about Wolf. It's a great read. Some of UConn's players don't have star power and some fans don't get all excited about them. Not me. I'm rooting for players that are on the team no matter whether they are stars, role players or practice players. And I root for them whether the team does great or not. And I support them even when the chips are down for them and when other fans are going after them.

That was a cool article. Thanks for posting it. If he can contribute, we're just that much more loaded and have someone here after Alex and Drummond leave.

I've always been a Wolf fan to some degree. When I first saw him I wanted him to be really good so he could play, but he wasn't exactly in prime condition last year. He'll definitely get his playing time this year.

Does Jeremy look taller than Alex and Roscoe? Can anyone compare the before and after (e.g. height/weight) last season?

Lamb is standing closer to the camera. It's an optical illusion.

not sure what to make of those listings from last year and this year, you would have to think both Jeremy and Bazz weigh more than what they did last year. Jeremy has put on muscle and Bazz has too and looks thicker. Either the weights were wrong last year and they're not accurate or they're just wrong all the way around.

Weights are inaccurate often times. Hopefully the opening day roster will have updated weights. Apparently Olander is up to 245 and Smith 220+

It's interesting he's listed taller because when I visited campus I passed by him and he honestly did seem a little taller. I only noticed because he seemed the same exact height as me last year, and now he seems a little taller. He either got new shoes or grew a little.

I like how that has EVERYTHING you need to know about Uconn basketball. I spent a lot of time going back and looking at all the previous season results.
