Taylorsville, Miss. quarterback Dominique Sullivan is one of the most talented and dynamic signal-callers in the 2010 class in the state of Mississippi, if not the entire southeast. On Friday, the three-star prospect decided that he wouldn't be taking his unique talents outside of the state any time soon as he committed to Southern Miss.
"I've just been talking to my family about it and they were all good about me committing to Southern Miss," he said. "I liked their offense and it's close to home so I went ahead and committed."
The commitment is a big one. Sullivan's production on the high school level should translate well to the wide open offensive system that is in place in Hattiesburg. That offense is a big reason for Sullivan's decision.
"It's about the offense and it's a program on the rise of being a good year this year," he said. "The coaches are excited about what I can do over there and they just can't wait to get me over there."
With offers from Tulane, Louisiana Tech and Florida International, Sullivan had been leaning towards a Southern Miss commitment for some time. Already he had attended two games in the fall, a camp and a junior day on the USM campus. Now his focus can turn to his senior season.
"I've been leaning towards committing for a while," he said. "I'm pretty set on Southern Miss down the stretch. Now I'm just trying to get my team in the best position to win this year."
As a junior, Sullivan passed for over 2,500 yards, 34 touchdowns and only four interceptions.
