Myles Wolfolk’s senior year is underway. If all goes to plan, he’ll graduate from Wise High School (Upper Marlboro, MD) this December and enroll at Virginia Tech in January of 2016.

“I should be there in January,” Wolfolk said, referring to Virginia Tech. “I’ve got to have one final meeting with my counselor to make sure everything’s okay. Other than that, I’m pretty sure it’s done.”

Wolfolk, who verbally committed to the Hokies last December, took English 12 this summer with an eye towards early enrollment. He discussed why he wants to get to college early.

“I feel like I’m ready to get down there and ready to play college ball. It also gets me an edge on other class of 2016 graduates because I’ll get to go through spring ball,” said Wolfolk, a defensive back recruit. “I’ll also get an extra semester of school. It’s a great situation for me. All around, it is a good choice. I have the credits now, so it’s better not to waste it.”

Wolfolk has not visited his future school as of late, but that will change soon when he attends the Ohio State game with his parents. The 3-star standout last attended a regular season game in Lane Stadium in November of 2014, when the Hokies defeated UVa.

“Actually, that experience was one of the reasons why I committed early. I just felt great about it,” Wolfolk said.

As a junior last season, Wolfolk earned first-team all-state honors for his play in the Wise defensive backfield. He is now a team captain, which is a role he takes seriously. The 6’0”, 190-pound senior feels well prepared to lead his team to an outstanding 2015 season.

“I need to be an impact player every time I take the field. My teammates are looking up to me,” said Wolfolk, who starts at wide receiver and cornerback and plays special teams for Wise.

“I’ve worked so hard this summer. We had a scrimmage this past Friday and I did very well. I’ve improved my whole game – my speed, size, ball skills, coverage, power… everything is better.”

Wolfolk plays cornerback at Wise and could end up playing corner at Virginia Tech as well. The Tech coaches, however, haven’t specified exactly where
