Junior College defensive back Dominque Harrison visited Morgantown over the weekend and he “definitely” enjoyed is visit, “I really like the people, the food, the facilities and how well they treated me and my family” said Harrison, also commenting on the facilities, “they were top notch facilities, especially the weight room”.
The 5’11” 190-lb defensive back from Houston, Texas had offers form Colorado, Oklahoma State, Fresno State, and Iowa State coming out of high school, but ended up at Blinn College in Brenham, Texas, “It let me get another chance to get my grades right. I had options coming out of high school, but my grades were bad. So, it made me more mature in the classroom, and also sharpened my skills on the football field”.
The coaching staff for West Virginia extended an offer to Harrison back in January, and defensive coordinator Tony Gibson and cornerbacks coach Doug Belk has stayed in touch, developing a “great” relationship, “They’re really good people”.
Colorado and Iowa State continued to recruit the defensive back and Maryland, Kansas and Southern Miss, also extended an offer.
Dominque’s talent on the field is undeniable. He has closing speed to make a play on the ball and to stay with a defender on a vertical route.
What jumped out to me was his timing to look back for the ball, and adjusting to make a play on the ball.
He has the strength to jam the receiver on the outside, knocking them off their route, and to make a big hit in the running game.
Harrison is familiar with the 3-3-5 defense and see’s himself playing corner and a little nickel.
West Virginia is the only school Harrison has visited since committing to Arizona State in May, and he explained on why he took the visit to Morgantown, “Just to see other options I had, and if West Virginia could be a fit for me to achieve my dreams and aspirations”.
With early signing day just a few days away (December 20th), this would be a great flip, if West Virginia could make this happen.
Arizona State has fired their head coach Todd Graham since Harrison has committed, but with Herm Edwards taking over, this decision could come down to the final day.
