Rezac Flips To Vanderbilt


Omaha Westside senior Dom Rezac is headed to Nashville and Vanderbilt. 

Tuesday, the 6-1, 190-pound athlete announced he would be committing to Vanderbilt as a preferred walk-on. 

“My biggest thing was relationships,” Rezac said of his decision. “I developed a good relationship with coach (Dan) Jackson when he was at Northern Illinois and then he moved to Vanderbilt. He  kept in contact with me throughout. I visited Vandy a few times and I loved it.”

Rezac led the state runner-up Warriors to an 11-1 record last season. He was the team leader in rushing yards (1,411) and rushing touchdowns (17) and was fifth on the team in tackles (50) as a safety.

It’s been nearly 11 months since Rezac committed to Air Force to play running back but that relationship changed recently. 

“At the time I committed to Air Force I thought the relationships were strong,” he said. “ In the end they were not as strong as I thought they were.”

Instead he will head to Vandy to play defensive back or linebacker. 

“They (Vandy) talked about either safety or nickel hybrid,” he said. “It just depends on how big I get which maybe I end up at safety.”

This fall, the  Commodores will be entering their second season under head coach Clark Lea. The progress and atmosphere around the program have impressed Rezac. 

“I’m a big culture guy,” he said. “ Coach Lea puts a big emphasis on culture. I believe in it and want to be a part of what they are doing at Vandy.”
