Multiple outlets including, CBS’ Jeff Borzello, are reporting that point guard Dominic Artis has de-committed from UCLA and will explore his options, though he has the Bruins among his favorites.
Artis’ uncle told Borzello that he “felt like he rushed into his commitment” and has been “thinking for a while now.” On the heels of Kyle Anderson’s verbal commitment, this is obviously a blow, particularly as UCLA has a need at point guard going forward.
Artis rode a hot hand throughout the summer all the way to the No. 9 ranking in the country at the point guard spot and he committed to UCLA originally in July. The Bruins have commitments from Jordan Adams and Anderson and recently hosted center Tony Parker for an official visit. The main target, Shabazz Muhammad, has said he’s waiting until the spring to decide on his destination.
