Domingo calls UA a priority after visit

2013 forward Stephen Domingo took an unofficial to Arizona this weekend. Read on to see how the visit went, where Arizona stands, and more.

Stephen Domingo was one of six visitors on campus for Arizona this weekend for the Red-Blue scrimmage, and the 2013 prospect definitely enjoyed his time in Tucson.

"My visit was awesome," Domingo said. "The atmosphere was great, the campus was great. Talking with coach (Sean) Miller and the rest of the staff was really cool too. It was a great visit all together.

"My favorite part was probably the game atmosphere, but I really enjoyed sitting down with Coach Miller after the game. My parents and I sat down with he and coach (Joe) Pasternack and we watched film and talked about me at Arizona when I get there. That was important to me also."

In his meeting with the coaches, Coach Miller made it very clear for Domingo what his future would hold at Arizona.

"The two main wing players Solomon Hill and Kevin Parrom are going to be gone when I come," Domingo said. "They say that's an opportunity for me to come in and they want me to play big minutes as a freshman. They want me to come in and be a real producer early in my freshman year.

"There will be a lot of responsibility given to me when I come in, but they think I'm a good candidate for that job. That was something they really emphasized."

The 6-foot-7, 190-pound four-star small forward had the opportunity to spend time with Arizona's 2012 recruiting class, and Gabe York, Brandon Ashley, and Grant Jerrett did a little recruiting of their own with the San Francisco St. Ignatius College Prep sharp shooter.

"It was cool hanging with those guy, they are like a family already," Domingo said. "Just to see them this weekend and how much camaraderie they have already, it was good to see.

"They didn't put pressure on me, but they definitely told me how much they want me to join them. We definitely talked about how much of an impact I could have when we all come in. It was a great opportunity to start to see those guys, especially on campus, and possibly envision myself there later."

At the scrimmage, Domingo was able to not only take in the current Wildcats in action, but also look on as the program honored its former stars.

"The team is going to be pretty tough to beat in the Pac-12 this year," Domingo said. "They have athleticism, they can shoot the ball, they have a lot of different things and it's really impressive.

All things considered, the Wildcats definitely put themselves in better position with the class of 2013's 31st ranked player.

"Arizona helped itself a lot, definitely. I got a better idea of the school from an academic perspective, an athletic perspective, an alumni perspective," Domingo said. "They really cleared up a lot of things I didn't know about. I've talked to coach Miller on the phone many times, but to really sit down with him, it really cleared up a lot of things too. It was a really good visit."

While he hasn't named any favorites, Domingo admits that amongst his 20 plus offers that Arizona is a priority.

"Arizona is up there on my list," Domingo said. "I'm going to wait until the end or after my season to cut my list. They're definitely up there; I really enjoyed my visit. I really like the coaching staff and everything they have to offer."
