Domingo high on Arizona

Stephen Domingo may not have an offer from Arizona just yet, but he is hoping his play changes that in the future.

CARSON, Calif. - Even though he does not currently find himself in the Top 50 players for the class of 2013, Stephen Domingo has been working hard on his game and expects that to change.

"My spring is going really well," Domingo said. "I've established myself as a Top 50 player this spring so far.

"I'm getting way more aggressive. I've always been able to shoot, but my mentality is different this spring. I'm trying to take the ball to the basket more. I already have my jump shot, but if I get to the basket, it's harder to guard me."

Schools out west and from across the country have noticed the progress in Domingo's game and have started to pick up their recruitment of the three-star prospect.

"Recruiting is going well," Domingo said. "I have offers from Cal, San Diego State, San Diego, USF, and Memphis. I'm hearing from Georgetown, Washington, UNLV, UCLA, Arizona, Arizona State, and Washington State. My coach says some ACC schools have been calling, but once the 15th rolls around I'll have a better feel for it."

Although Arizona's recruitment of Domingo is in limbo as of late with coaching changes both at San Francisco St. Ignatius College Prep and UA, the 13th ranked small forward in the class of 2013 has been in contact with the Wildcats.

"Coach Archie was recruiting me, but now that's he's left, Coach Sean (Miller) has been calling my high school coach, but we had a change so it's at a stand still," Domingo said. "Shabazz (Muhammad) and Rashad (Muhammad) took a visit and they were asking about me. Coach Book came through. We'll see now that Coach Archie has left."

Despite the lull in his recruitment, Domingo is not shy about his feelings for Arizona.

"I love them," Domingo said. "If I were to get an offer, I would really consider them. I'm really considering them now, and I feel like I'm one of the top wings on the west coast and in the country, so the offer will come around.

"It's definitely a school I could see myself at. It's really early, and I'm not saying I'm going to commit if they offer. I'm considering them now and I will continue to consider them. I'm not cutting my list anytime soon."

An athletic wing that can hit a jump shot from anywhere on the floor, Domingo believes he would be a good player in Sean Miller's system at Arizona.

"I watched Arizona a lot this year and I like them a lot," Domingo said. "I can see myself playing their wing position with the way that my shooting stretches the floor. I can see that if they insert me, I'll be a good fit for them."

While he waits on Arizona, Domingo will continue to move forward in his recruitment with an upcoming unofficial visit.

"I have a visit planned to Georgetown on the fifth of July," Domingo said. "That's it for now, but I'm planning more."

Not surprisingly, Domingo has every intention to get down to Tucson before making a decision in approximately 15 months.

"Arizona will most definitely get a visit," Domingo said. "Before my decision is made, I want to get out and see them. I'm not in a hurry, I won't decide until next August right before my senior year."
