Georgetown sophomore guard Stephen Domingo announced he will return home to the Bay Area and continue his basketball career at Cal.
Domingo, who starred at St. Ignatius High in San Francisco, totaled 29 points in 39 games over two seasons at Georgetown. Scout.com rated Domingo as a four-star (out of five) prospect as a high school senior.
The 6-foot-6 wing, who must sit out next season as a transfer, said he is excited to play for new Cal coach Cuonzo Martin.
“Georgetown was just not the right basketball opportunity for me,” Domingo said in a phone interview. “I’m going forward and Cal will be a place I can flourish and show what I can do.
“Coach Martin said I’ll be able to use my length and athleticism on the defensive end and I can be a matchup problem on offense.”
Domingo said Cal was among his finalists when he first chose a college out of high school.
Domingo is the second player Martin has added to the Cal roster since being hired last month. A week ago, he signed incoming freshman Kingsley Okoroh, a 7-1 center from England.
