New Football Verbal--RB Matt Domer--Updated

BG has a new football verbal, and this is another player on the offensive side of the ball.  His name is Matt Domer, a RB from Chicago Mt. Carmel and he appears to have some upside.

He certainly has some credentials.  He was ready to go to Illinois.  He had committed there in the summer before his junior year, was "denied admission" and then went to a junior college.  The plan from there was to head to Illinois for the winter semester, but that never happened due to what Domer calls "some personal things on my end."

He rushed for 1,467 yards and 16 touchdowns in 2013 as a senior at Chicago Mt. Carmel, where he helped lead the Caravan to a Class 7A state title. He averaged 7.8 yards per carry, and also caught seven passes for 64 yards and a score and returned four kickoffs for 139 yards and a touchdown (This is where Donovan McNabb, Chris Chelios and Jordan Lynch, among others played).  He was the offensive player of the year from the Times of Northwest Indiana.

According to this story, he was considered one of Illinois' top recruits and it was thought that he could contribute right away. Indiana, Boston College, Cincinnati, Kansas, Northern Illinois, Syracuse and Western Michigan.

Update"  BGSU did an official announcement today.  Domer has signed as in school today.
