Stephen Domingo is listening to Indiana’s pitch

INDIANAPOLIS — This week’s adidas Invitational has allowed Stephen Domingo an opportunity to visit the state of Indiana and also be evaluated by the Hoosiers’ coaching staff.

Domingo, a 6-foot-6.5, 194-pound small forward from San Francisco’s St. Ignatius, is the top wing on a very good 16U Dream Vision team.

Indiana head coach Tom Crean and assistant Steve McClain both talked to Domingo on June 15, the first day coaches could call class of 2013 prospects, and have continued to keep in contact with him.

“I talked to coach Crean and coach McClain like two days before the tournament,” Domingo said. “I talk to them pretty often. … They just tell me how they really like how I can spread the floor.”

During Dream Vision’s first pool game, Domingo got off to a difficult start offensively. But he banked in a baseline jumper off an in-bounds and that seemed to get him going. He finished with 15 points, including several long 3-pointers.

“My game is based on that right now, so I need to change that a little bit to get my game really flowing – so I don’t have to shoot jumpers,” Domingo said.

Domingo is the No. 36 player nationally according to and has offers from Arizona, California, Memphis, Georgetown, San Diego State, UNLV and USC, among others. UCLA, Washington, Washington State, Stanford are also showing interest.

That’s a host of West Coast schools, but Domingo (whose dad lived in Indiana for several years) said location will not hurt Indiana’s chances.

“If I find a school that I love and is close to my house, that’s one thing,” Domingo said. “But if the best fit for me is Indiana, then I am going to go there.”

Indiana’s relative depth at the wing position is also not a deterrent.

“I am just going to take my time,” Domingo said. “I know they have a couple of wings (committed) already, so I am going to see if I can fit in what they already have.”
