Pruitt: Wood-Anderson 'can create plays in passing game'

KNOXVILLE — JUCO transfer tight end Dominick Wood-Anderson started off his Tennessee career on a high note in the season-opening game against West Virginia.

Wood-Anderson scored UT’s first touchdown of the season on a 4th-and-goal play in the second quarter. In the second game of the season, the 6-foot-4, 257-pound Arizona Western C.C. product reeled in one reception for 12 yards in the home opener against ETSU.

“He played much better this week around the line of scrimmage, and he blocked really well,” Jeremy Pruitt said of his tight end ahead of the UTEP game. “That’s something that he’s improving on and he worked hard on it in fall camp.

“I think he’s a guy that can create some plays with us in the passing game. He’s got to be a little more consistent with his route running. There are a lot of guys on our offense that have ability and are improving, and he’s one of those guys.”
