Tennessee tight end signee Dominick Wood-Anderson doesn’t want to be just the next average Volunteers tight end — he’s looking to cultivate his craft with one of the best to ever play the position.
Wood-Anderson posted on Twitter Thursday that he hopes to one day work with former Vols star Jason Witten. Witten, who is an Elizabethton, Tenn. native, played for UT in the early 2000s. He has since made 10 Pro Bowls and racked up over 12,000 receiving yards with the Dallas Cowboys.
Wood-Anderson is a 6-foot-5, 245-pound junior college prospect in the class of 2018.
The Spring Valley, Calif. (Steele Canyon) native is rated as the nation’s No. 1 JUCO tight end according to the 247Sports Composite. He’s also the 11th-best JUCO prospect in the entire country.
The potential is clearly there for Wood-Anderson to possibly one day make it to the pros. So, why not look to Witten for help?
There aren’t many better tight ends out there, and Witten just so happens to have played for the Vols’ current athletic director, Phillip Fulmer.
It was probably a good idea for the young signee to send out this tweet:
Hope I Get To Work On My Craft With @JasonWitten One Day
