The Tennessee Vols received some much needed good news on Wednesday.
According to a report from VolQuest, the nation’s top 2018 junior college tight end, Dominick Wood-Anderson, will officially enroll at Tennessee on Thursday.
Wood-Anderson committed to the Volunteers during the early signing period, but his enrollment was delayed because he had to finish up some online classes to be eligible.

The California native could be an important part of the Vols’ offense in 2018. Tennessee will definitely need some playmakers in Tyson Helton’s offense and Wood-Anderson is a player that can be a dynamic asset in the passing game.
Wood-Anderson told VolQuest that he’s gotten “bigger and stronger” after working with a trainer for the last several months in California. He also added that he’s “ready to learn the playbook and grind with the team”.

Tight end Tyler Petite caught 23 passes for 307 yards for the USC Trojans in Tyson Helton/Tee Martin’s offense last season.
So while it doesn’t look like the tight end in the Vols’ offense will put up monster numbers, there’s definitely an opportunity for Wood-Anderson to be a key part of the offense next season.
