Defensive athlete Domann commits to Nebraska
JoJo Domann never publicly released a list of top schools, opting instead to go through the recruiting process in a sort of stealth mode that is not too common anymore.
On Friday, the three-star outside linebacker from Colorado Springs (Colo.) Pine Creek was ready to disclose where his heart has been set for some time, committing to Nebraska and first-year head coach Mike Riley.
"I'm at a point where I've taken in everything from each school and I feel like I've chosen the best traits of where I could thrive the best on the football field and in the classroom," Domann said. "I'm so comfortable with (Nebraska) and that's very important. There is a family aspect to what they're doing there."
Domann, the linebacker most valuable player at the Rivals Camp Series stop in St. Louis earlier this year, committed to the Cornhuskers over 13 other scholarship offers, though Arizona State and Kansas State were the two schools that posed a serious threat. His relationship with lead recruiter Trent Bray, though, was a key component, as was his bond with a couple Nebraska players Domann has ties to.
"Along with my former teammate and best friend Avery Anderson, and then another good friend in Eric Lee, the support system there is great," Domann said. "On top of the coaches being friendly and always being there for me, the support system there is great. The facilities are top-notch. Everything they do there, they strive for the best. That's really attractive because that's exactly what I want to be about. I hate to lose."
Domann said the Cornhuskers view him as a defensive athlete in a versatile role where he could slide around depending on the set. He was the state defensive player of the year as a junior last season and has shown the ability to cover from the safety position but also pursue ball carriers closer to the line of scrimmage.
The 6-foot-1, 208-pound prospect might take an official visit or two this fall, but he doesn't anticipate a change of heart in the future.
"I'm extremely comfortable with my school," Domann said. "I'm 100 percent committed and I'm all in. I'm ready to help them win championship."
Domann had 61 total tackles, including seven for a loss, to go along with seven interceptions last year. He also had 49 receptions for 797 yards and 10 touchdowns.
The addition of Domann now gives the Huskers 13 commits overall for 2016 and two commits from the state of Colorado as Aurora (Colo.) Regis Jesuit tight end Jack Stoll picked Nebraska over Texas earlier this week.
