GRAND FORKS, N.D. – The University of North Dakota’s 2014 football signing class keeps growing as head coach Bubba Schweigert announced on Friday that Dominique Blackmon has signed a National Letter of Intent to play for his program.

Blackmon, who is originally from Avon, Ind., will add depth to the North Dakota secondary and arrives in Grand Forks after a two-year stint at Arizona Western College. Blackmon registered 45 tackles and four interceptions as a defensive back during his two seasons with the Matadors. He also added three defensive touchdowns, returning two interceptions and a fumble for a score.

“Dominique is a talented secondary player that we are excited to have join our program,” Schweigert said. “He was a qualifier out of high school, but decided to go the prep school rout and attended Milford Academy where he received some great technical training as a defensive back.

“From there, he took his play to an even higher level at the JUCO ranks where he played against both FBS and FCS talent. He has maintained a high GPA throughout the process and will bring more than just on the field attributes to our program.”

Blackmon played the 2011 season at Milford Academy after earning All-Hoosier Crossroads Conference honors at Avon High School as a junior and senior. He played in the Indiana Football Coaches Association All-Star Game following his senior season.

Blackmon will join the UND football team in the fall and have two seasons of eligibility to play for Schweigert.
