Scout.com’s Evan Daniels is reporting tonight that UCLA has picked up its second commitment of the 2012-13 basketball class in rising star point guard Dominic Artis.
Artis, who picked up his offer from the Bruins and head coach Ben Howland in late June, has been sensational on the AAU circuit this summer, and his commitment is being praised extensively by recruiting experts on Twitter.
The 5-foot-11 gifted passer carries himself with a healthy swagger, yet has proven this summer that he’s able to take his game to another level, as he did during the recent Pangos Camp (video below) and the Nike Peach Jam Camp.
The four-star prospect also becomes the second commitment this year from a premier basketball factory, as he is transferring to vaunted Findlay Prep in Nevada for his last high school season. He joins Oak Hill Academy’s Jordan Adams as early commits, and the two could kick off another lofty recruiting class for Howland.
