Stephen Domingo is one of the best 2013 wings not only in the bay area but in the entire country. He is a real threat with the ball in his hands and on the defensive end of the court.
He measures in at 6’7 and 200 pounds, which is usually a size you see at the 4 and maybe the 3 but not when you have a jumper like Domingo. He is lights out from all over the court. He is known for his ability to shoot mercilessly from the perimeter. So much so, that colleges are recruiting him mostly to play the 2 and some like him at the 3. However, he is naturally a shooting guard.
He is working on expanding his game right now, he wants to be able to take the ball to the basketball at a more consistent level. He doesn’t want to just rely on his outside shot.
Domingo is a really hard worker with a deep desire to better himself. In fact, when I talked to him he was on his way to get in another workout.
His natural ability and his constant work ethic has allowed him to be recruited by almost the entire west coast with plenty on the east coast in the mix as well. He told me, “I don’t have a list per say but I have a lot of schools coming after me.” Schools like; UW, Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Harvard, Georgetown, WSU, USC, Stanford, UCLA, and many more.
He doesn’t plan to narrow down his list until after his junior season (this year). He is open to every school right now but when the school year is over, he will narrow it down to somewhere between 8 and 10 schools.
Currently he is taking or has already taken 4 unofficial visits to Harvard, Georgetown, UW, and Arizona. He says there is a reason those are the ones he wants to look at his junior year. They intrigue him and he wants to know more about those schools.
He recently just got back from a visit to Harvard. He enjoyed seeing how it was run, meeting with the coaches, and he loves the fact that they are an up and coming program.
On Nov. 5th he takes his unofficial visit to UW where there is not only the anticipated matchup of UW versus Oregon on the football field but also that is the Men’s Hoops first exhibition game against Seattle Pacific University.
He likes UW right now and he loves that fact that Washington was the first team to come out and watch him play. He said, Coach Fortier has been watching him since middle school and that they both went to the same high school. “There is a connection there.”
He thinks the potential of the 2013 UW recruiting class is ‘impressive’. That they could land him and a few of his friends in Jabari Bird, Aaron Gordon, and Nigel Williams-Goss. The 4 of them have talked about the idea of playing together on the same team and that excites him. However, he wouldn’t say the Huskies are the favorite as he isn’t ready to narrow down his list until after the season.
