Former UConn center Enosch Wolf will forgo his senior season to sign a pro contract in Germany, according to a report from Sportando.net.

Wolf, who averaged 3.4 points and 3.4 rebounds a season ago, was indefinitely suspended following a Feb. 11 arrest. He missed the final eight games of the season, and was reinstated without scholarship in late May. Wolf, arguably the team’s best center, had a few options: He could have returned to UConn as a walk-on (an expensive proposition for a non-U.S. citizen), transferred to another school or gone pro.

It appears he has chosen the latter, reportedly agreeing to terms wit the Telekom Baskets Bonn of Germany.

Wolf was arrested in a late-night domestic dispute and charged with third-degree burglary, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct.

He “grabbed the hair of the victim and pushed her head,” according to a police report. “Wolf also knocked the glasses off of the victim’s face with his hand. Wolf continued to remain in the apartment and was subsequently arrested by police.”

Following the completion of personal counseling, the charges were later dropped.

At UConn, Wolf was a non-factor for a few seasons before making a mark as a junior. He posted a career-best 12 points and nine rebounds against N.C. State, and added productive games in wins against Wake Forest (12 points, six rebounds) and DePaul (eight points, seven rebounds).

Without Wolf, here’s a look at UConn’s roster:

STARTERS

PG — Shabazz Napier, senior: Had one of the best individual seasons of any point guard in program history.

SG — Ryan Boatright, junior: Dynamic athlete and scorer. Struggled as point guard in Napier’s absence.

SG — Omar Calhoun, sophomore: Showed solid progress throughout freshman season.

F — DeAndre Daniels, junior: Long, physically-gifted wing who put it all together in final five games.

F — Tyler Olander, senior: Had a disappointing season as the starter (4.3 points, 3.7 rebounds).

BENCH

G/F — Niels Giffey, senior: Glue guy who struggled with jumpshot during junior campaign.

F — Kentan Facey, freshman: The highest-rated of UConn’s three newcomers. A lanky 6-foot-9 athlete who will be counted on to rebound and block shots.

F — Phil Nolan, sophomore: Averaged 6.3 rebounds in final three games.

G — Lasan Kromah, grad student: Long, active defender whose scoring numbers have dipped each year.

G —Terrence Samuel, freshman: Physical point guard in the Kevin Ollie mold.

F — Amida Brimah, freshman: Ridiculous wingspan (reportedly 7-foot-5), but underdeveloped offensive skills.

F — Leon Tolksdorf, sophomore: Spot-up shooter who played sparingly a year ago.

G—Brendan Allen, junior: Scholarship player last season reverts to walk-on status.

*G—Rodney Purvis, sophomore: Will sit out 2013-14 season as a transfer. Can practice with team.
