Domingo to continue visits

Stephen Domingo is not only one of the best basketball prospects in the class, but a great student as well. Now two more visits are coming up to Pac 12 schools.

One of the premier players on the West Coast in the class of 2013 is Stephen Domingo. The 6-foot-6 wing has a great shooting stroke to well beyond the three point line, and also a good understanding for how to play. That was all on display on the John Lucas Midwest Invitational.

"I have been working out with Coach Lucas for a while now," explained Domingo. "To bring the top players here and do all of these drills, you can't compare it to anything else. One-on-one drills are good, but when you go against the top players that is a great way to get better."

Recently Domingo made an unofficial visit to Harvard. For an academically inclined prospect such as Domingo, the atmosphere at Harvard really impressed him.

"It was cool the school has a lot of tradition," said Domingo. "The team had really good camaraderie and the coaching staff is great as well. The guys have NBA ambitions like all the other high-major schools I have seen. Just because they are in the Ivy League, they don't take a back seat to anybody. They try to play the best teams and they try to get the best players."

With Harvard being the most recent visit, two other unofficials are coming up on his schedule. Domingo will visit Arizona on October 21 and Washington on November 5.

"I have heard the Red and Blue Game atmosphere is crazy," said Domingo of his trip to Arizona. "I know they are going to have guys on their official visit that weekend. They want to show me that class and have me get to know those guys. More than anything when I am down there I want to get a feel for the school."

When it comes to the Washington visit, Domingo said, "It will be their first exhibition game and their football game against Oregon so that should be a good atmosphere. I want to learn more about Coach (Lorenzo) Romar's program, so I am excited to see them."

Harvard, Arizona, and Washington have all been by to see Domingo play, but he says numerous others are also dropping by his school.

"Arizona State, UCLA, Georgetown, California, Stanford, Penn, Boston College, those schools have made multiple visits," said Domingo.

Obviously with interest from some of the top academic schools in the country, Domingo is about more than basketball when it comes to his recruitment.

"I took the SAT on October 1, and that is something I just want to get done," he explained. "Academics are a part of me, and regardless of what school I go to, I am going to go to all of my classes and do well in my classes. When I visit the schools it is a pre-requisite that I meet with the academic advisors so I get a feel for how they do things. You have to be a well rounded person not only with basketball, but with academics."

To this point Domingo has been talking to coaches and making many visits, but the four-star wing says he remains very open in the recruiting process.

"I am completely open," he explained. "The schools I am visiting are getting visits for a reason. They stick out to me in some sort of way, but I am not close to make a decision right now. I am 100 percent wide open and taking everything in."
