Dom Rezac has had a busy June, for that matter a busy last week. The 6-foot, 180-pound Omaha Westside senior-to-be had a private workout at Nebraska on Friday. Saturday, Rezac traveled to South Carolina and produced some eye-popping numbers.
In Columbia he ran a 4.50 40-yard dash, measured a 39-inch vertical jump, measured a 10’4” broad jump and had a short shuttle of 4.31 seconds.
“I surprised myself even a little bit,” Rezac said of his performance in Columbia. “I jumped my vertical and the guys that were measuring it didn’t believe it so I retested and did better than I did the first time.”
He had similar results on Friday at his private workout in Lincoln.
“It was good,” he said of his experience in Lincoln. “I had a private workout with coach (Ryan) Held and tested with them. I didn’t talk a ton with them. They said I would be hearing from coach Held and coach Frost in the next few days.”
Like most recruiting it’s about connections. A family friend on the coaching staff at South Carolina was the catalyst for his workout there.
“They saw my film and wanted to get a good look at me in person and invited me down.”
Rezac, a two-way player, worked out at defensive back at South Carolina and running back at Nebraska.
‘They (South Carolina) seemed to like me a little more than Nebraska did,” he said. “I talked to coach (Shane) Beamer in his office for a while. They said they need to wait and see how their numbers shake out with COVID but they said they want me there one way or another.”
Air Force was Rezac’s first Division I scholarship offer on March 10. To date, it is still his only one. He plans an unofficial visit to Air Force next weekend and an unofficial visit to North Dakota State on June 26. At the end of the month he will take a trip to San Diego State and workout for the Aztecs.
Last season, Rezac was among the state’s leaders in rushing for the 2020 Class A state champion Warriors. In twelve games he had 1,310 yards on 168 carries and 18 touchdowns. In 2019 he primarily played safety.
At the next level he doesn’t have a preference as to what position he plays.
“I’ll play wherever,” he said. “The schools that are talking to me are half and half with running back and defensive back.”
