Did you make the trip to Georgia Tech for their Saturday practice despite all the inclement weather?

"Yes sir, we drove down and made the practice and coaches clinic."

How did the practice look?

"To me It was very good despite the rain. I really like what Coach Johnson is putting in at Georgia Tech. They will run the ball and that is what type of school I am looking for to play football. We watched the whole practice and got a chance to talk to all the coaches. I talked to my position coach, my recruiting coach, and the head coach . I really liked the entire staff, they fit well together."

What was your impression of the ones you had a chance to talk to a lot?

"They all were great. They showed me a great time and a lot of love. Coach Kelly was great as we had a long talk after practice. Coach Bohannon is a great coach as he knows his stuff. Coach Johnson is a very good coach that knows his football. I liked him a lot." All in all it was a great trip and I really enjoyed it."

How about the campus, did you get a chance to see much of it?

"I did and I really liked the campus. It is real nice."

I have offers from Georgia Tech, Tennessee, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Auburn, Memphis, and Wake Forest. Others are recruiting me too."

Do you have a favorite right now?

Do you any more visits lined up this spring?

"I am going to Tennessee on April 19th to see their spring game and get a chance to talk to Coach Drayton and running back Arian Foster."

What summer camps will you be going to?

"I know for a fact I am going to the ones at Alabama and Tennessee as I went to them last year. I plan on having a busy summer taking in as many school camps as possible and combine camps like the Scout and Nike week long camps too."

What will be the factors that will form your decision on which college you will go to?

"I really do want to go to a school with good academics. That will be a plus. Also, I want to go to a school that has a good football tradition and has a chance to be very good one the field. Plus if they run the ball, that's even better. I want to be able to contribute to my team and running is what I can do to help. Lastly, I want to feel very comfortable at the school. If I feel comfortable with my surroundings and combine that with the others, then that's the school for me."

Do you have a time frame for a decision?

"No sir I don't. I want to make the right decision so I don't know if I will make one over the summer or after my season. I do know that I want to concentrate on doing my best during my season so whatever allows me to do that will be the way I go. It might be before the season starts or it could be after I finish my high school season."

How do you think your high school season will go?

"We've put in a lot of time getting ready for the season already. As a team we look very good. We feel that a state championship in 4-A ball is what we will bring home. We are ready to bring it home."

Has your teammates given you a nickname?

"They have. All of them call me "Big Bull" because of the way I run."


Dale's Take:
Dominique was very open bout all the questions asked of him. He has a set plan on how he will choose a team. Given the tone of his voice, he really enjoyed his trip to Atlanta and liked what he saw at Georgia Tech. His next visit is to Tennessee and it does seem that both Georgia Tech and Tennessee will be major players for Dominique's abilities on the field.
