Right now, Tennessee football has one sure bet at tight end, and that guy is Dominick Wood-Anderson. The four-star junior college transfer who was highly coveted by Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide is looking to burst onto the scene as a star in Jim Chaney’s system.
Behind Wood-Anderson, Austin Pope as a junior is likely to be the No. 2 option. But given what Chaney and Jeremy Pruitt like to do, which involves running multiple tight ends at a time and getting lots of them reps throughout the season, Jacob Warren has a great chance at seeing some action.
He didn’t play at all last year, but he brings great size, including height and weight that it good enough. Warren will have competition from Princeton Fant and incoming true freshmen Jackson Lowe and Sean Brown, but somebody has to take that No. 3 tight end spot. There’s a very good chance it goes to Warren.
After all, Warren is the most experienced person actually working at tight end of anybody else on the roster, and none of them outside of Wood-Anderson and Pope have in-game experience. With the transfer of Eli Wolf, look for Warren to be a very effective tight end.
