The highest-rated player that Jeremy Pruitt was able to add to Tennessee’s 2018 early signing period class received some unfortunate news about enrolling early with the Vols.
Dominick Wood-Anderson, a four-star junior college tight end, will have to delay his enrollment at Tennessee. According to an interview with 247Sports, Wood-Anderson planned to enroll early for the spring semester that begins this week at UT.
But because he is still in the process of finishing his academic requirements, he’s having to delay his enrollment to a later date.
“It was a little disappointment,” said Wood-Anderson. “But as long as I get there, I’m fine with that. I just want to get there.”
Wood-Anderson is currently the Vols’ 4th-highest rated player in their 2018 class according to 247Sports. He’s the top JUCO tight end and the No. 11 overall JUCO player in the 2018 class according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
Every other player who planned to enroll early for the Vols is still scheduled to do so, however.
Tennessee is expected to add eight players to their roster from their 2018 class when the spring semester begins on Wednesday, January 10th. Defensive lineman Greg Emerson, JUCO defensive end/linebacker Jordan Allen, receiver/athlete Alontae Taylor, offensive lineman Jerome Carvin, tight end Jacob Warren, offensive lineman Ollie Lane, defensive lineman Kingston Harris, and punter/kicker Paxton Brooks are set to join the Vols early.
