For the season, Wolitarsky has a modest eight catches for 109 yards, but he has been targeted as much as any receiver on the team aside from Engel. The Wisconsin game was a struggle, as quarterback Philip Nelson directed four passes to Wolitarsky without a completion. None of the plays was easy, but three of the balls were catchable.
On Oct. 5 at Michigan, Wolitarsky just missed a pass from Mitch Leidner in the end zone, leading offensive coordinator Matt Limegrover to remark: “I thought Drew was going to come down with it. Freshman Drew couldn’t quite get it done, but Junior Drew will.”
Wolitarsky runs crisp routes and already has a knack for getting open. In time, he will learn to position himself better to make catches. Kill notes that former Gophers receiver Eric Decker and Wisconsin’s Jared Abbrederis had to learn the same things.
“It’s tough to get so close and see [the pass] end up on the ground,” Wolitarsky said. “But I’ll keep getting better with the vision training and everything we have.
“[The ability’s] there, but you’ve got to finish.”
Sort of like a good book. The last page makes all the difference.

Poll: Does it bother you that Tyus Jones chose Duke over Minnesota?
