Lawton, Oklahoma native D.J. Wolfe came to the University of Oklahoma as a running back recruit but made the transition to defensive back and became a star. Arriving on campus in 2004, Wolfe found himself behind Kejuan Jones and Adrian Peterson on the running back depth-chart. As a sophomore he moved to corner where he started for the entire 2005 season.

As a junior, in 2006, Wolfe struggled and was ultimately replaced at corner during the season. However, that didn't keep him from making his mark as one of Oklahoma's best defensive players of the Bob Stoops era. He transitioned to his third position for his senior year, in 2007, and became a first-team All Big 12 safety. Wolfe registered 173 total tackles, 17 passes defended, and seven interceptions (with one being returned for a score) in just 40 games as a defensive back during his Sooner career.

Wolfe went on to play in the NFL for the Atlanta Falcons.
