Say hello to another late bloomer. Dominic Gicinto wasn’t on anybody’s radar screen, but then he tripled his production as a senior and got an offer from the in-state school.
Welcome @dominic_gicinto to the family! Dom has outworked everybody in the country to prove he will be a dynamic SEC wide receiver! Came to camp multiple times, popped off multiple sub 4.4 40's, & left nothing up to chance! Cannot wait for you to get here Dom!! #MO #ShowMe18 pic.twitter.com/wP8e5yDlDW— ShowMe18 (@MizzouShowMe) December 20, 2017

From the original commitment article:
Gicinto is a 5’10, 175-pound receiver; his size means he will be projected as a slot receiver, but he was a high-volume guy at Raytown. Acccording to MaxPreps, he caught 31 balls for 554 yards and eight touchdowns in 2016, then exploded for 85 catches, 1,341 yards, and 10 scores this fall.
This is the time of year when talent evaluation skills really pay off. Missouri locked in on a late-bloomer type (he’s enough of a late-bloomer that he doesn’t have a 247Composite rating yet) just in time to sign him in the December signing period.
Very, very well-earned. Welcome, Dominic.
