Stephen Domingo has been playing well on the AAU circuit and in camps as of late and is starting to receive more attention. His play was rewarded on Tuesday with an offer from Arizona.
"Yes I am very excited," said Domingo. "I'm excited because they are one of the top programs, not only in the Pac-12, but in the nation as well. They are close to home, which would be an easier transition.
"They get players to the NBA, which is good. It is one of those schools that as a high school student you would want to end up going to."
At the Pangos All-American Camp, Domingo was featured in the Top 50 all-star game and was on fire the entire time. Domingo finished with 30 points and hit on 5 of 7 three-point attempts.
He told WildcatAuthority.com at the time that he had interest in Arizona and now that he has an offer from the Wildcats, they remain a team of great interest for him.
"It is still early, but obviously they are up there," Domingo explained. "I'm an only child, so the school being close to home is important. Arizona definitely will be a school that will be there at the end."
Arizona now joins California, Memphis, San Diego, San Diego State, and San Francisco as schools that have offered the San Francisco native. Proximity to home will be a factor for Domingo, as he has stated.
"My family is excited about it too," said Domingo. "It is good to know that people are starting to recognize the hard work that I have done so far. But it also lets me know that I have a long ways to go too."
It is still early in the process for the 6-foot-7, 190-pound small forward, but it is likely that he will take the next step and take a visit to Arizona.
"Probably later," explained Domingo. "I will talk to coach (Joe) Pasternack about it and probably try and take a visit there later."
Domingo will continue to play with Dream Vision on the AAU circuit this spring and summer and attend camps as well. He was at the 16-under USA National Team trials this past weekend, but unfortunately was unable to make the team.
"It was tough," said Domingo. "There was a lot of competition out there. I was one of the last guys to get cut they say. But I will use it as motivation."
