COLORADO SPRINGS — JoJo Domann, Pine Creek's hybrid linebacker/wide receiver announced over Twitter on Friday that he will play college football for Nebraska.

The 6-foot-1, 208-pound Domann will be a senior this fall.

"I got a feeling about a month ago and it kind of sat with me for a while," Domann said on Friday. "Talking to (Cornhuskers linebackers coach Trent) Bray about where they want me and talking to my parents, it was an opportunity that I couldn't pass up."

At Nebraska, Domann will join former Pine Creek teammate Avery Anderson, a cornerback who signed with the Cornhuskers out of the 2015 class. Former Valor Christian standout Eric Lee Jr. was also a 2015 signee at Nebraska.

Domann will also arrive with Regis Jesuit tight end Jack Stoll, who committed to Nebraska on Wednesday.

"That's obviously a perk," he said. "That support system is going to be crazy. I have family in Lincoln and obviously with Avery, Eric (Lee Jr.) and Jack Stoll who I'm getting to pretty well."

Domann was a big part of the Eagles' state championship team last season, going for 797 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns while totaling 61 tackles and intercepting seven passes.

Almost immediately after Pine Creek won the Class 4A title last fall, its second consecutive, the offers started pouring in for Domann. He was first offered by the University of Colorado back on Dec. 13, with an offer from Kansas State not far behind.

"It was fun and it was stressful," Domann said. "Just having to talk to coaches, media and fans all the time, you get redundant with yourself. At the same time, I'm so fortunate to be in the situation I was in and I realize that I had to just go with it."

He also picked up offers from Cal, Arizona State, North Carolina and Nebraska, giving him plenty of options. In all, 14 different schools offered. Sorting through all the schools was a tough task, but in the end, Domann made the decision that he felt was best.

With his college commitment now behind him, Domann can now focus entirely on helping the Eagles try to win a third-straight state title.

This year could prove to be more of a family affair as his younger brother, Brock, is expected to take the reigns as the starting quarterback for Pine Creek. The younger Domann stepped in for last year's starter Tommy Lazzaro while Lazzaro battled minor injuries.

"It's going to be pretty crazy," Domann said. "It's going to be fun. He's working and he's not taking any days off. We know what it's going to take. Everyone is going to be gunning for us."

Prior to announcing his decision on Twitter, Domann called each coach that had offered him a scholarship.

Domann is the fifth in-state football player to announce his college choice from the Class of 2016 so far.
