Last week Mount Carmel running back Matt Domer committed to head football coach Tim Beckman.
The 6-foot-1, 180-pounder started the past two seasons for Lincoln-Way North at running back but was recruited as a cornerback. He was able to show off his defensive back skills at various summer camps which impressed other Big Ten schools Northwestern, Wisconsin, Nebraska, and Iowa.
Hylton and Domer join Lincoln-Way East center Nick Allegretti, Neuqua Valley wide receiver Mike Dudek and Springfield Sacred Heart Griffin wide receiver Malik Harris as Beckman’s in-state commits.
