Recruiting begins to pick up for Gaisie

Mt. San Antonio always produces a ton of talented players, but a multi-faceted cover-corner who can return kicks and punts as well is still waiting on his first offer. CB Dominique Gaisie (5-10, 170) is a player with the speed and confidence necessary to compete at the next level and he's just now starting to see some interest from some D-1 programs.

Gaisie prepped at Bishop Amat in La Puente, California and decided to play at Mt. SAC when he didn't qualify.

"Mt. SAC is a great program and one that I felt at home at and that I could felt would help get me ready for the next level," Gaisie told recently. "When I came in they put me out on the island almost right away and I just felt at home and I also got to return punts and kicks too, so I was out there a lot right away."

In two years, Gaisie started every game except the first game of his freshman season and in 2008, he managed to post 71 tackles, four interceptions and 13 passes defensed while almost averaging 20.3 yards per kickoff return and 13.2 yards per punt return.

Now that he's finished up his eligibility with the Mounties, he's focused on getting that ever-elusive first offer.

"BYU, Temple, UNLV, Arizona and Washington have all been on me," Gaisie said. "BYU is recruiting me the hardest right now and Washington just started recruiting me really hard because my DB coach (Demetrice Martin) just got hired up there and he wants to bring me with him.

"BYU is tripping me on January 9th and they said they will probably offer me when I get there on the visit. Washington might offer me too, but I think they need to sit down and talk about things before that happens because the new staff is just getting in up there."

Gaisie will finish up his AA degree in May and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
