May 24, 2012 California Love: Hoyas Nab Highly Coveted Recruit From San Francisco
One of the top talents in the class of 2013 will be playing their college basketball at the Phone Booth. St. Ignatius High School (San Francisco, CA) forward Stephen Domingo committed to the Hoyas this past Monday. The consensus four-star recruit, who had over 30 committable offers, chose Georgetown over programs such as Big East foe Louisville, Arizona, Cal, Harvard, Stanford, UCLA and Washington. A three-year varsity starter, Domingo is currently ranked as the #44 prospect in the country by ESPN.com
Domingo has had many the accolades during his first three years at St. Ignatius. The 6’7 200 pound forward has earned all-leaguefirst-team, all-city, all-metro and all-state honors. In addition, he is partof the Adidas National Development Team, the USA Basketball 17U Development Team and the Dream Vision Traveling Team.
Domingo remained humble throughout the entire recruiting process, which is a tough thing to do when you are that young have an inordinate amount of attention placed on you. “I was very honored to have been recruited by many outstanding coaches and programs,” he added. “In the end, I felt Georgetown was by far the best fit for me and what I hope to accomplish in college.”
Domingo seems to be happy with his decision and did not give any indication that he would continue to look around at other school after pledging his commitment to the Hoyas. “I’m proud to be a part of Hoya Nation,”Domingo said. “Georgetown will help me develop into an outstanding basketball player and an outstanding young man.”
It seems fitting that once Hollis Thompson left school that JTIII and staff would close the deal on yet another prep star from the state of California. Hopefully Domingo can have the same sort of positive impact on the Hoyas program that Thompson brought from the left coast a few years ago.
