Reports: Georgetown transfer Stephen Domingo headed to Cal

Leave a comment

Ex-Georgetown guard Stephen Domingo is headed back to the west coast where he will play out the remainder of his college basketball career for Cuonzo Martin at Cal, according to multiple media reports.

Domingo was a high-profile recruit coming out of high school, a four-star prospect that was ranked in the top 50 in the Class of 2013 before leaving high school early to enroll at Georgetown when he was 17 years old. Unfortunately for Domingo, he was never able to crack the rotation with the Hoyas, playing in just 39 games in two seasons in Washington, D.C.

Domingo is a talent, however. He’s a 6-foot-6 shooter that will be able to spend all next season developing his game and his body as he sits out the 2014-2015 season due to NCAA transfer rules.

Domingo is the second player that Martin has added since he got the job at Cal. He’s also brought in ace recruiter Yanni Hufnagel from Vanderbilt.

Stephen Domingo, a Georgetown commit from the Class of 2013, will reportedly enroll immediately and prepare for the 2012-13 season with the Hoyas, according to

Domingo is a Top 50 player from 2013, coming from St. Ignatius (Calif.). He has all of the credits to allow him to graduate from high school and, according to Jeff Borzello of, the plan has been in the works for some time.

The most interesting detail about this, though, is the fact that Domingo just turned 17 years old, putting him in college early, similar to what former Hoya guard Hollis Thompson did his freshman year.

At 6-7, 200 pounds, he brings a three-point threat to Georgetown and he could fill the vacancy left by Thompson on the perimeter.

Domingo was previously a member of the USA Developmental National Team and averaged 15.4 points in 2010-11.

By enrolling early, he joins a three-man class for Georgetown in 2012, which also includes D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera, Brandon Bolden, and big man Bradley Hayes.

Smith-Rivera is coming from the basketball powerhouse Oak Hill (Va.), while Hayes was a late spring signing.

John Thompson III and the Hoyas are coming off a run to the Round of 32 in the NCAA tournament, but will be losing leading scorers Jason Clark and the above-mentioned Thompson, as well as center Henry Sims.
