Britt Enjoys UC Junior Day

One of the players taking an unofficial visit for Cincinnati's Junior Day last Saturday was Domonick Britt of Trotwood-Madison High School. Bearcat Insider spoke with Domonick to get his impressions about the Bearcat program.

Domonick Britt is a 6' 5"/195 pound quarterback at Trotwood-Madison High School, and as a junior, he's already getting a lot of attention from college recruiters. Britt visited Cincinnati last Saturday with several of his high school teammates, and Domonick sounded impressed with his Junior Day visit. "It was really good. We all really enjoyed the visit. I got the chance to get to know their coaches better. I think I'll visit one of their spring practices and maybe attend a passing camp so Coach Kelly can help me with my foot work."

The Gem City quarterback did not leave with a Cincinnati offer, but one of his teammates did. "Coach Kelly said he still wants to see me throw, but he was impressed with my films. I think they did offer my teammate, Brandon Moore." Moore is a TE/WR prospect who also added an offer from Michigan this week.

As a junior for Trotwood Madison, Britt threw for 2,889 yards and 21 touchdowns, but he's not satisfied with those numbers. "I want to work on recognizing defenses better. I threw about 10 interceptions last year and I want to improve in that area for my senior year." Domonick is also a threat with his legs. Last year he ran for 1,046 yards and 9 scores.

Britt claims offers from a variety of schools already including Buffalo, Kent State, Kansas, Eastern Michigan and Illinois, but he's expecting that list to grow. "I want to wait until my senior year so I can see all my options before deciding on a school."

Accompanying Britt on the trip to Cincinnati were Trotwood-Madison teammates Brandon Moore (TE/WR), Jamiihr Williams (LB), Michael Shaw (RB/S), Ike Washington (MLB/DT), and Roy Roundtree (WR). Domonick said the group has toyed with the idea of playing together in college. "We've all talked about getting the job done with our grades so maybe we could stay together and go to the same school." Domonick estimated his GPA to be in the 2.5 range in his core courses. He also said the Cincinnati coaches talked to the players about academics. "They told us the NCAA was changing in 2008, and players needed more core course to be eligible. I didn‘t know about that so it was good to hear it."

In addition to starring on the football squad, Domonick is a starter on the #2 state ranked Trotwood-Madison basketball team averaging a double/double. "I was the 6th man last year, but I'm starting this season. I'm averaging about 10 or 11 points and 10 or 11 rebounds."

Despite being an accomplished quarterback, Domonick hasn't ruled out playing another position in college. "I played safety my sophomore year, and I'm not afraid to hit." Britt's forty-yard-dash time is listed at as a 4.66, but Domonick believes he's much faster. "The only time I've even been timed was at Ohio State, but I know I'm faster than that now. I think I could run a 4.5 or faster, and I'm thinking about running track this year to help me too."
