Syracuse Making Domer a Priority

Matt Domer is up to eight offers and continues to be a priority for several schools. One in particular has made a point to visit his school multiple times in recent weeks. Domer discusses the latest inside.

Running back might be the most important position for Syracuse in their 2014 class. One of their top targets is Mount Carmel High (IL) standout Matt Domer.

"They visited me the other day and they're actually coming back again," Domer claimed. "They're coming back to see me. They talked to my coach really. I didn't get to speak with them. You know how the rules are."

Coming back twice in one week shows that Syracuse has very high interest in the three star running back. That interest has left a big impact on Domer, who has discovered an interesting connection between his current coaches and his recruiter at Syracuse.

"It feels pretty good. It feels good to know a school of such high caliber is showing such interest in me to try to get me on their team.," Domer admitted. "And they're in the highest conference in the NCAA division one. It brings a lot of interest towards me and I definitely want to get out there and check things out for sure for my own self. I hear it's a great place.

"My workout and conditioning coach, he's great friends with my recruiter, DeAndre Smith. He tells me Coach Smith is a great guy who I could spend time with for five years if need be. I'm pretty sure that's going to be one of the top schools I'm going to be considering when I make my decision."

Despite that connection, Domer says he is not being pushed towards Syracuse. His coach is there as a guide and that bond is very important.

"He just answers questions," Domer explained. "He not really forcing me because we've had this bond since before I went to Mt. Carmel. He just wants what's best for me. He's looking out for me and what he feels is the best for me. He tells me all the benefits of a certain place as well as the negatives of going there. But in this situation, the positives outweigh the negatives by a lot."

Domer says no one is standing out as summer approaches. He is looking at taking visits soon, and they will be a big factor in who stands out.

"I'm waiting for the summer so I can get out and take my visits," Domer said. "Spend a night down there and get a feel for these schools. Right now, I know Western Michigan, Syracuse, Illinois, Indiana, I mean they're all highly interested. I stay in contact with them all a lot. So I guess you could say they're all showing equal interest."
