After Dominique went to the Oklahoma-Notre Dame game, Derrick Sr. said his son knew he was meant to be in Norman.

“He got to see the atmosphere and the fan base and how supportive the fans were and former players that came back on that day,” Derrick Sr., a Tulsa police officer, said. “I think that's one of the things that sold him on it.”

This fall, Dominique will take on his dad's former team and his brother's, Derrick Jr., current team: Tulsa.

“On a scale of one to 10, the trash talk is 10,” Dominique said. “I tell him they have no chance and then he tells me we're not going to win.”

Derrick Jr. tried to talk his little brother into TU, but Dominique said once he received the Oklahoma offer, there was no changing his mind.

Plus, he's already creating memories with Oklahoma. Take, for instance, when Bob Stoops called to offer to Alexander.

“Hello,” Alexander said.

“Hello?” Stoops said.

“Hello?” Alexander said.

“Hello. Have you heard my commercial?” Stoops responded, talking about the AT&T commercial in which his only line is the word ‘Hello.”'

Then the new commit and his new coach laughed.
