Arizona Basketball Recruiting: Stephen Domingo Visits Tucson, Wildcats High On List

With all three members of Arizona's top-ranked recruiting class on campus this past weekend for the Red-Blue Game, it was easy to overlook a few of the other talented players on campus. One of the best and fastest rising players in the class of 2013 is 6'7 wing Stephen Domingo and he recently visited Tucson to take in the festivities.

Domingo recently spoke with about his visit. Here were a few of the highlights:

"My visit was great! I really enjoyed the scrimmage and being with the Arizona people. The environment was crazy," said Domingo. "The players they already have committed (Gabe York, Grant Jerrett, and Brandon Ashley) were really cool to hangout with, and they told me they would love to have me come to Arizona."

"There wasn't any pressure put towards it or anything like that, but they definitely did try to recruit me," he laughed. "Those guys are already like a big family. It's really appealing, and they want me to join them. They all said I could be a big difference-maker if I came in following them."

Arizona is a school with a ton of momentum on the recruiting trail and they are only bringing in the best talent from across the nation. Domingo has the potential to be a star at the next level and he could see immediate playing time should he become a Wildcat.

"Coach Miller explained to me that Solomon Hill and Kevin Parrom will be gone once I get to the college level, so there will be some holes at my position. They think I could come in and really play some big minutes my freshman year. They really emphasized me producing."

Every player wants to come in and see immediate time on the court and Domingo has that opportunity with UA. He will likely wait until after his high school season to make a decision, though it could come as late as the summer months. Many schools are battling for Domingo's services and Arizona fans have to feel confident about their chances with Sean Miller at the helm.
