Only Dominique Threatt Days Until USF Football

New, 3 comments

Threatt is a great asset for the offensive line, but he will probably not start this fall unless someone else gets hurt.

#61 OG Dominique Threatt
Junior, 6'1", 320 lbs.

Stats in 2014: Threatt started in the NC State game at left guard to replace the injured Thor Jozwiak, and played against Western Carolina, Maryland, UConn, Wisconsin, and SMU as well.

Spot on Spring Depth Chart: backup right guard under Brynjar Gudmundsson.

How He Came to USF: Threatt is from Atlanta, where he played for Tri-Cities High School and made quite a name for himself. He was a first-team all-region selection as a defensive lineman, and a first-team all-state and all-metro selection as an offensive lineman. Threatt was born in Birmingham, Alabama and got some attention from Auburn and the Crimson tide, but neither school offered him. He did get offers from Georgia, Louisville, Cincinnati and UCF, but he committed to the Bulls at the beginning of his senior year, which was Skip Holtz's last one here. Taggart and crew kept Threatt interested, and his letter of intent was the second to arrive on national signing day in 2013.

Recruiting Rankings: he was a three star-er according to all of the major recruiting services.

Projected Playing Time: I see Threatt starting next season when he's a senior. The coaches seem to favor Gudmundsson and Jozwiak as guards and for now there doesn't seem to be much reason to change that up. However, Threatt could start this fall and be successful if he needs to. He has some serious weight, but is athletic enough to pull and cross over to do traps and lead block for rushers on zone reads. He doesn't give up on plays and I've seen him pancake Deadrin Senat, which is not exactly easy. He's dependable and will get more experience on the field this year, and in 2016 will probably play a key role.

Fun Fact: Tri-Cities High School is also the alma mater of Keenan Thompson of Keenan and Kel, The Mighty Ducks, and Saturday Night Live. Not to mention Andre 3000 and Big Boi of Outkast. Believe it:
