2019 Season Outlook
JoJo Domann was one of Nebraska’s most versatile defenders in 2018, and will look to make an impact with his play-making ability again this fall. The 6-1, 235-pound Domann began last season as a safety, but was moved to outside linebacker midway through the season where he made an immediate impact.
This spring, Domann worked almost exclusively at outside linebacker and joins fifth-year seniors Alex Davis and Tyrin Ferguson as the most experienced players at the position. Domann’s athleticism allows him to be a disruptive pass rusher, and an effective run stopper who can also drop into pass coverage.
The Colorado native earned playing time as a true freshman in 2016, before missing the 2017 season with a knee injury. He has also performed well in the classroom as a two-time member of the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll and a 2017 Academic All-Big Ten selection.
Domann saw action at both safety and outside linebacker, starting two games at outside linebacker in November. He finished with a career-high 19 tackles while recording his first career tackle for loss and first career sack. Domann also tied for the team lead with two forced fumbles, and he recovered one fumble and broke up a pair of passes.
Domann played in the season opener against Colorado and had a tackle on special teams but missed the next four games with an injury. He returned in a special teams role at Northwestern and saw action on special teams and defense in the win over Minnesota. Against Bethune-Cookman, Domann had one tackle, a forced fumble and the first pass breakup of his career. Domann then earned his first career start the next week at No. 8 Ohio State and had a career-high seven tackles - including a seven-yard sack - while forcing a fumble and breaking up a pass for the second straight game. Domann started again the next week against Illinois, and he made five tackles and recovered a fumble. In a win over Michigan State, Domann had four stops, his third straight game with at least four tackles.
Domann sat out his sophomore season as a redshirt after suffering an injury in spring practice that also kept him out during the fall.
Domann saw action in every game as a true freshmen, primarily on the Huskers' coverage units. Domann had eight tackles, all on special teams, with five solo stops. His eight special teams tackles were third most for Nebraska. He also added depth at safety.
Before Nebraska (Pine Creek HS)
Domann was regarded as one of the top prospects in Colorado, after an oustanding career as a versatile performer at Pine Creek High in Colorado Springs. Domann’s play helped Coach Todd Miller’s Pine Creek team to a 38-3 record during his final three seasons at the school, including two state titles in the Class 4 ranks.
