Early Signing Period: Tennessee lands commitment from top JUCO tight end

Huge pull.

NCAA Football: Tennessee at Missouri Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

It wasn’t that long ago that Dominick Wood-Anderson seemed destined to end up in Tuscaloosa. Now, the number one JUCO tight end in the nation has committed to the Tennessee Volunteers. You can mark this one down as Jeremy Pruitt’s first major pull over his current and soon to be former boss Nick Saban.

Wood-Anderson was the recruit that (now infamously) said he would commit to Tennessee if Vol fans got him over the 20,000 follow threshold. The tweet has since been deleted, but he got his wish.

The 6-5, 245 pound tight end is the number one tight end in the JUCO ranks and is a four star prospect, according to the 247 database. With Ethan Wolf gone, the tight end position is in flux as we look ahead to 2018. Tennessee has some bodies there, but none are really proven.

Wood-Anderson was likely sold on the change to play immediately. He will battle with Eli Wolf, LaTrell Bumphus, Austin Pope and incoming freshman Jacob Warren for the starting job.

UPDATE: It’s already official. Wood-Anderson has signed with Tennessee.
