The Rams' signal caller talked about how he got the offer. "Before I go to lunch, I go into Coach Doug's room, and he told me he had something for me. He asked me if I wanted it now so I said ‘Yes.' He said, ‘Naw, naw.' But then he just went ahead and told me. I couldn't believe it. I was excited."
It says a lot about Cincinnati's offer for Domonick to be excited. This isn't his only option. Domonick already holds offers from Toledo, Kent, Illinois, Akron, Buffalo, Eastern Michigan and Eastern Kentucky, but the Bearcats look be the front runner at this early date. "I like Cincinnati a lot, but I want to wait and see what else comes. But they are my #1 school right now." Domonick explained part of what he liked about the Bearcats. "It's close to home so it would be easy for my family to see me play."
Since Domonick passed for almost 3,000 yards and 21 touchdowns while running for over 1,000 yards and 9 scores as a junior, he would seem to be a perfect fit for Coach Kelly's spread offense. Domonick will apparently get the chance to see the Bearcat offense in its spring game on Saturday. "I want to come, and after working things out I'll be there."
Britt, Brandon Moore and Mike Shaw are comparing notes. "You better believe we are. We're hoping that the other three can also get offers." The "other three" are Roy Roundtree (WR), Jamiihr Williams (LB) and Ike Washington (DL). "I guess the coaches like what they see in them, they just want to see them in person and workout."
Domonick didn't think he was ready to make a decision yet. "My decision might be a minute. Coach and I always go over everything, and he said to take some time to think about it." Dominick knows the Bearcats have some other offers out to quarterbacks including a player from Indiana that he said was 6' 7".
Getting a chance to talk with the Bearcat coaches about the offer is important to him, but he said his schedule gets very tight this summer. "I hope to go down there and talk to the coaches some time, but for right now I have camp after camp for the summer." Domonick will be on the Ted Ginn Tour bus and use the instruction he receives to get better. "I want to get better and learn new things. Hopefully, I can work it in next year and win a state championship."
The Rams will be playing on the Nippert Stadium Field Turf next fall. "I'll have a chance to show UC what I'm about when we play a team (Highlands High School) from out of Kentucky."
If Domonick were to become a Bearcat, he would eventually be reunited with an old basketball friend-Yancy Gates. Domonick and Yancy used to play together on the D-1 Greyhounds AAU team.
