Britt High On Bearcats

During the spring game the University of Cincinnati football program saw several prospects take in the action. One who caught the eye of head coach Brian Kelly was Trotwood-Madison quarterback Domonick Britt. The dual-threat Britt saw a published story that didn't have all the facts and wanted to make sure there was no misunderstanding in what lies ahead.

With three members of the Trotwood-Madison program holding official offers from Cincinnati, the chances of the Bearcats landing one rose when Domonick Britt received his.  In fact, the odds of the Bearcats picking up multiple Rams increased when the signal caller received his offer.

"Several of us have talked about playing together in college.  Will it happen?  It's too early to say, but I do know each of us have talked about it and with three of us holding offers and possibly one or two more getting offers it could happen."

In a recent report it was stated Britt was in no hurry to make a commitment to any program.  Domonick wants to make things very clear.

"When I visited Cincinnati for the spring game I came away very impressed with the offense and the coaches I spoke with.  I was really impressed with Coach Kelly after he showed he really knows who I am.  After the game he was doing interviews and when I walked up with my coach we watched him finish up an interview.  He had another reporter waiting on him but instead of doing the interview he told the reporter to wait and then came right to me and congratulated me on getting a Cincinnati offer.  He then expressed how important I was to the future of the Bearcats program.   I really can see myself playing there in the future and was to make a visit there this past week to look at the academic side of things.  I couldn't make the trip but I'll visit in the next two weeks (May 10) at some point and if everything checks out I might have to make a decision."

Holding several offers, Britt and his teammates Michael Shaw and Brandon Moore continue to see teams offer them. 

"We each just received offers from West Virginia.  I also picked up an offer from Miami Ohio and Minnesota."

When asked about a timetable to make a college choice Britt was quick with his decision.

"Right now I have high interest in Cincinnati.  It's close to home and they run the style of offense that I could fit right into early and make things happen.  There is a former Trotwood-Madison player (Greg Moore) playing there now and his family talks very high about the program and school.  UC is my main choice right now with programs like Louisville, Illinois, Oregon, West Virginia, Kent State and others.  I know I'd like to make my college choice before my senior season starts and maybe even sooner if I find all the things I need for success on and off the field."

While Britt is sure to continue to see his stock rise, he'd be a major piece of Brian Kelly's first full year of recruiting.  A player with the skills to run the Bearcats offense while also being athletic enough to move to wide receiver if needed, Britt is a major talent just starting to see his potential.
