The 2009 graduate of Canby High School, who served a two-year mission in northern Virginia before playing at BYU, figures to Michael Domancontribute for the Vikings as a 6-foot-4 defensive end.

“We expect him to bring a level of maturity and leadership to the team,” PSU coach Nigel Burton said of Doman in a news release. “He will give fits to tight ends everywhere because he is a guy who can stand over tight ends at 270 pounds and make it difficult for them.”

Doman played in five games at BYU this past season, recording six tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss and a sack.

Doman was a multi-sport standout at Canby. He earned all-league honors twice as a lineman in football, placed second in the state in wrestling as a senior and highlighted his track and field career with a seventh-place state finish in the discus.

Doman, the son of Dee and Shelie Doman, is now married and has one child. He plans to study biology and become a physician’s assistant, according to his Portland State profile.

Doman is one of three incoming transfers from four-year universities, joining Wyoming linebacker Zack Berg and Arizona safety Patrick Onwuasor. He arrives at PSU alongside two graduating Canby football players in Sam Bodine and A.J. Schlatter.
