Transferring to UT 'really came down to good people' for Wood-Anderson

KNOXVILLE — Junior tight end Dominick Wood-Anderson met with the media for the first time since arriving at Tennessee after transferring from Arizona Western College.

Wood-Anderson said his decision to come to Tennessee “really came down to good people.”

“Football will take care of itself,” he said during fall training camp media availability. “I wanted to be around good people for my final two years.”

Being around good people includes Wood-Anderson’s position coach Brian Niedermeyer. The JUCO transfer tight end says Niedermeyer is “a great coach who pushes us as a unit to get better day in and day out, whether that be in the weight room, the classroom or on the field.”

Part of transferring to Tennessee is learning a new offense under Tyson Helton. The 6-foot-4, 257-pound tight end says “it was a bit of an adjustment” on picking up the offense.

“Coming from a junior college, the playbook wasn’t as complicated,” Wood-Anderson said. “The terminology is pretty much the same, but there is a little bit more. You have to put in the extra time. It’s not just going to practice and working on it then. When you go back to your room, you have to study the playbook.”
