One of the nation’s top mid-major prospects is off the board.
Waupun (Wis.) 2019 small forward Marcus Domask announced his commitment to Northern Kentucky on Monday, choosing the Norse over a slew of offers.
“With what I was looking for in a program, I just think they matched everything and more,” Domask told Prep Hoops Wisconsin. “I just meshed with the coaches and players.”
On Sunday, Domask hosted the Northern Kentucky staff for an in-home visit and was able to inform them in person during the Green Bay Packers game.
“Both the coaches jumped out of their chairs real quick and hugged me,” Domask said. “They were super excited. It felt really good.”
Domask had other offers from UW-Milwaukee, Bucknell, American, Air Force, Akron, Western Michigan, Elon, Idaho State, Montana State, Wright State, Indiana State, and UW-Green Bay. The 6-foot-5 senior said he had things narrowed down to Northern Kentucky, Wright State, UW-Milwaukee, and Bucknell.
Domask took an unofficial in the summer and returned to Northern Kentucky two weekends ago for an official.
“On the official, I had more time to hang out with the players,” he said. “I got a better understanding of the program. They were a tight group. That was something that stood out to me, because I’ve always had that in my hometown.
“It was a big piece of what led me to my decision.”
Domask is the second known verbal commitment for Northern Kentucky in 2019, joining Josh Earley (Shawnee Mission, Kan.).
The Norse pick up a versatile and cerebral play who can play all over the floor. A stretch wing that can excels as a spot-up shooter and post-up presence, Domask will be used in a variety of ways.
“They have a ball screen motion offense, but it’s really versatile, and they like that piece of my game,” said Domask. “They told me that they would use me all over the floor and get me touches in different areas. Their offense allows for a large variety of options and that fits my style well.”
Last season, Domask averaged 22.8 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game, leading Waupun to a 24-2 overall record and a share of the East Central Conference championship. Since Domask has arrived at Waupun, the Warriors are 70-9 overall, including a Division 3 state championship during his freshman year.
Getting back to Madison and finishing his career off with perhaps another state title will be a priority in 2018-19.
“Bringing home the gold ball is definitely on everybody’s mind,” he said. “I think we can definitely do that. We have a good thing going here. As long as we keep working hard, I think it’s a possibility.”
