Tarpon Springs CB Darien Wood has signed with Ellsworth Community College (Iowa.), former Spongers coach George Kotis said in an email today. The 5-foot-11, 165-pounder was a standout for a Tarpon Springs defense that was among the county’s most stingy in 2009. He also had three touchdown receptions. ECC has one of the nation’s top junior college programs. The 2009 Panthers squad finished ranked No. 9 in the country.
