Doston prepped at Seabreeze High School in Daytona Beach, Florida and was unable to qualify for a D-1 scholarship.
"I just wanted to get out and play the best JC ball I could and COS had a great reputation for their program and they always had great players out here," Doston told JCFootball.com recently.
As a corner, Doston is a physical presence, able to play both zone and press-coverage, using his size, quickness and speed to do whatever is necessary to lock down the opposition's best wideout.
"I have a good balance because I can do both, but I love press-coverage," Doston said. "I love to be physical with the receiver and the challenge of being man-to-man, out there on the island and doing what I do best."
Even though he has yet to take a snap at the JC level, Doston has been hearing from several schools although it's mostly preliminary at this point.
"I've been hearing from UNLV, San Diego State, San Jose State, Baylor and UCLA and Oregon State wanted my info this spring," Doston said. "My coach said once schools see me this fall they will start sending in offers because I'm only a freshman right now, so schools want to see more of me and also because they want to see my transcripts and that I can get out in the spring."
Doston enrolled at COS early and is ahead on his academics and his plan to graduate in May with four years to play three wherever he ends up.
