Magazu Playmaking WR/DB

Dominick Magazu, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound, junior wide receiver, from Charlotte (N.C.) Providence is starting to create a buzz in the "Tar Heel" state. Magazu is being compared to Notre Dame's Jeff Samardzija and he has the talent and the numbers to back up that talk.

Magazu, whose father, Dave Magazu, coaches tight ends for the Carolina Panthers, had 23 catches for 543 yards as a sophomore. Dominick had 25 receptions as junior and averaged 23-yards per grab.

Magazu also plays safety for Providence and had 40 solo tackles and six interceptions this season. College recruiters feel that Magazu will be a very good wide receiver at the next level.

"You look at him (Magazu) him on tape and he does the same thing the Samardzija kid from Notre Dame does," said a college coach from the Big Ten Conference.

"He comes out of his breaks extremely well, he catches everything in the air and he has tremendous hops. The game that we saw on tape, Magazu had 5-catches for 163-yards and he also had two interceptions. He can play."

We were able to catch up with Dominick Magazu and we asked him which schools he would consider as early favorites.

"North Carolina and Boston College have been writing me," Dominick Magazu said. "I wouldn't mind playing with my brother at Kent State. I also like South Carolina, East Carolina, Miami (Ohio) and Marshall.

"My dad coached at Boston College for a while so I'm familiar with the coaches and the school. I'd really like to go there. Things are in the beginning phase as far as recruiting. I plan on hitting some camps next spring and summer."

We'll have more from Dominick Magazu in the near future.
