One of Tennessee’s biggest recruiting wins from the 2018 cycle is finally set to enroll at Tennessee. Dominick Wood-Anderson — the nation’s number one rated JUCO tight end prospect — will enroll at Tennessee tomorrow. He was initially slated to be an early-enrollee back in January, but academic issues forced him to push that plan back. According to Volquest, everything is good to go in that area now.
According to the report, Wood-Anderson spent the last couple of months at home in San Diego to get caught up academically.
Wood-Anderson chose the Vols over Alabama, Texas A&M and Oregon during the early signing period back in December. He was one of Jeremy Pruitt’s first recruiting wins over his old boss, Nick Saban.
The 6-5, 255 pound tight end is expected to push for playing time early on, but he has some catching up to do after missing the spring. Eli Wolf, Austin Pope, LaTrell Bumphus and Jacob Warren will all figure into the tight end equation, too.
Tennessee has a few issues on the roster, but playmaking pass catchers are something that they aren’t short on. Jauan Jennings, Marquez Callaway, Brandon Johnson and Josh Palmer will form a pretty talented group at receiver. Adding in Wood-Anderson to that passing game mix just adds another dynamic option for Jarrett Guarantano or Keller Chryst. We’ll see how quickly he can come along and learn the offense.
