Stephen Domingo entered Georgetown following his junior year of high school. The small forward will leave the men's program before his junior year of college.

Domingo intends to transfer from Georgetown, sources confirmed to CSNwashington on Thursday. This past season as a sophomore, he averaged 0.5 points in 19 games. In two seasons with the Hoyas, Domingo scored 29 points in 39 games.

Obviously those stats are hardly impressive, but they are worth noting. That's because the 6-foot-6 forward from Northern California came to Georgetown as a notable recruit with a shooter's reputation.

Domingo ranked among the top-30 recruits for the 2013 class when he committed to the Hoyas in May of 2012. Two months later came word that Domingo had enough credits to graduate high school early and thus would enter Georgetown a season early. That summer he played for the gold medal-wining Team USA in the FIBA U17 World Championships.

That potential never translated into games with the Hoyas. Domingo labored with his shot -- finished his Georgetown career 3 of 27 (11.1) from beyond the 3-point arc. Perhaps a greater sin, the inability to garner faith from coach John Thompson III on the defensive end. That led to infrequent minutes even during a 2013-14 season when the Hoyas often played with short roster due to injury and suspension.

Georgetown figures to be loaded on the perimeter for the 2014-15 season. Swingman Aaron Bowen will return for his fifth season, Reggie Cameron rises to sophomore status while forward Paul White and wing guard L.J. Peak enter as freshmen. D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera and Jabril Trawick man the starting backcourt slots.

Combined with Moses Ayegba's intention to play a fifth season elsewhere, Georgetown has two open scholarships for the 2014-15 season.
