Ohio QB could also play defense

Xenia (Ohio) Beavercreek two-star quarterback Zach Domicone is a star quarterback, but more and more schools are taking a long look at him at a few other positions.
"A lot of teams are waiting for my senior tape because I'm being recruited as a defensive back by a lot of schools," Domicone said. "Our coach said I'm going to be playing both ways next year so a lot of teams want to see me on defense.
"Air Force offered me as a quarterback first, but if that doesn't work out they said I could probably play receiver, defensive back or linebacker. I'd like to play quarterback because that's what I've been doing. But I played safety my freshman year so I can do that too. It's whatever position gets me to where I want to go."
Air Force isn't the only school interested in the 6-foot-2, 205-pounder that rushed for 577 yards and threw for 535 yards in 2006.
"Purdue, Indiana, Central Michigan and Air Force are who I have been hearing from a lot lately," he said. "I've been to a lot of camps. I've been to Toledo, Eastern Michigan, Central Michigan, Cincinnati, Indiana, Purdue, Ohio State and I still have Northwestern and Akron at the end of this month."
A few teams would be at the top of the list if they were to offer him.
"I like Purdue and Indiana a lot," he said. "I also like Central Michigan and Cincinnati. I've been to all those places. But my favorite right now is Purdue. I visited up there and I really liked everything they had to offer."
Beavercreek is expected to be very good this season, Domicone said.
"We're looking good," he said. "We return our whole offensive line. The only thing we lost is our running back. But we're definitely on the rise in our conference and we're looking to make our first state playoff appearance in school history."
