Jevonte Domond only played about one year of high school football. He played only one year of JUCO football.
He’ll have three years to play SEC football, for LSU.
Domond will be graduating from junior college this summer and may be on the Tigers’ campus as early as this fall if all goes smoothly, though as of “right now” he is being considered a part of the class of 2015, he told Saturday Down South. If things work out, there is a chance he could switch back to being a late 2014 addition and could be with LSU this fall. That will be determined in the near future. In either situation, he would be a sophomore when he starts. If he goes with the 2015 class, he could join the program in Jan. 2015 and participate in spring drills.
“I’m committed to the 2015 season right now,” Domond told SDS on Wednesday morning.
Domond stands 6-foot-7, 305 pounds and is out of Glendale Community College in Arizona and was offered only last week by LSU assistant Jeff Grimes. Having nine players drafted into the NFL last week factored into Domond’s decision to go with LSU. Florida was his other SEC scholarship offer, while Miami, Oklahoma State and Wisconsin were just some of his other offers.
“It was through the work of my offensive line coach at GCC, Jason Jewell, he brought my game to a different level,” Domond told Saturday Down South. “Now I’m going to get to go against the best every Saturday. It’s like living a dream still. I’m just excited for the opportunity to come in and compete for a spot.”
Domond was a first-team all-conference performer last fall at GCC. He played his high school football at Maricopa H.S. in Arizona.
Talk about a whirlwind. A week ago he didn’t even have an LSU offer and now he’s all set. He is rated the No. 10 overall prospect in this JUCO class, while he’s the top Arizona JUCO prospect and top JUCO offensive line prospect in the country.
