The opportunity that Max DiDomenico was waiting for arrived Wednesday night.
After a couple weeks of discussion and contact, the Clemens (Texas) senior received his first FBS offer from Army. DiDomenico researched the academy during Army’s interest and was ready to make his decision Thursday morning.
In his commitment post on social media, DiDomenico, who is being recruited to play safety for the Black Knights, thanked Army’s staff for taking a chance on him. DiDomenico was planning on taking the junior-college route and attend Tyler (Texas) before Army’s offer.
“(Army) gave me an offer when most schools did not,” said the 5-foot-11, 190-pound DiDomenico. “They believed in what they saw.
“To my family and I, it’s about a 40-year decision and not a four-year decision.”
DiDomenico will be playing safety for the first time since his sophomore season. He’s been the starting quarterback at Clemens the past two seasons. He rushed for 1,353 yards and 19 touchdowns and threw for 1,400 yards and 14 scores as a junior. DiDomenico accounted for 930 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns and passed 1,454 yards and 14 TDs this season.
“Army is getting a well-rounded young man who is ready to go out and compete,” DiDomenico said.
