Colorado football and Deion Sanders Planted a key commitment from the NCAA transfer portal Sunday when former Arkansas coast defender Jordan Dominique Announced that he committed to the Buffaloes. Dominecc, who has one season of eligibility remaining, had 7 1/2 sacks and 9 1/2 tackles for loss over 13 games in 2022 — his final season — for the Razorbacks.
The long edge rusher is listed at 6-foot-3, 251 pounds and previously transferred from Georgia Tech to Arkansas prior to the 2022 season.
Dominech signed with Georgia Tech as a three-star recruit in the 2018 class out of Lakeland (Fla.) George W. Jenkins Senior. Iowa State, Syracuse and Vanderbilt represented Dominique’s only other Power Five offers at the time.
Dominech has a long track record as a productive pass rusher at Georgia Tech and Arkansas, as he was a key member of the Yellow Jackets’ defense during his tenure in Atlanta.
Sanders hit the transfer gate hard this offseason as he looks to rebuild Colorado’s roster heading into his first year at the helm after the Buffs went 1-11 in 2022. Colorado ranked dead last at the FBS level with just nine sacks last season – Five behind the next closest team – so Dominique will be a key piece to support a position of major need.
Colorado ranks No. 3 nationally in 247Sports’ Transfer Portal Team Rankings with a strong class of 21 transfers. Dominech will join another former Hog in Boulder, Colorado, as Sanders previously landed a commitment from former Arkansas safety Miles Slusher. Jackson State transfers Travis Hunter And Send Sanders – Coach Prime’s son – head Colorado’s class.
Sanders has been open about the need to completely overhaul Colorado’s program since arriving in Boulder. Last week, Sanders joined the set of “College GameDay” and explained how he can get the Buffs winning again straight into 2023.

“You’ve got to get your top guys, they’re going to have to buy in, that’s how we do it and what we do … that’s the consistency that needs to be established,” Sanders said. “Not only on the practice field, but off the field. Those guys, you can’t get here and all of a sudden change. You don’t want to see a different mannerism from somebody.
“Everybody is talking about the players, but you have to coach the coaches too. They can’t get supplied. They can’t look around and start thinking about jobs and thinking about their next move. They also have to be consistent. .”
