There is a clear-cut starter for Tennessee football this year at tight end, and his name is Dominick Wood-Anderson. He’s the biggest tight end on the roster, and as a senior who specializes in receiving and was once a four-star junior college transfer highly coveted by Nick Saban, he’s in position to shine this year under Jim Chaney.
However, Jeremy Pruitt has demonstrated a love for using multiple tight ends at a time, and Chaney has shown he will do that as well. Add in the fact that Pruitt likes throwing guys into the fullback position every now and then, and there’s an opening for another tight end to see lots of playing time.
Right now, Austin Pope is the favorite for that No. 2 tight end spot with the transfer of Eli Wolf. But numerous other guys could be in the running for that, including two freshman tight ends, Jackson Lowe and Sean Brown.
Lowe is the favorite on our list to land a role among those young guys if one comes up. He was a highly touted tight end in last year’s recruiting class, and he was an early enrollee. Then there’s his size. He’s the second biggest tight end on the roster. So his experience combined with his potential give him a great chance to play early, and it’s why he’s on this list.
