Four-star Trevon Bluiett de-commits from UCLA

Trevon Bluiett’s commitment to UCLA lasted all of a month. After becoming the Bruins’ first 2014 pledge, the four-star forward officially reopened his recruiting process.

Rated No. 45 in the country by Rivals.com, the Park Tudor High star was once coached by UCLA assistant Ed Schilling. Schilling was in Indiana today to talk to him, but the Bruins now again have an empty slate for the 2014 class. Bluiett had said during the summer that he intended to sign with a school during the early period in November.

“I think the distance part of it played a factor,” Bluiett’s father, Rey, told the Indianapolis Star. “When he sat down and thought about it, I think the distance from home was hard for him.”

    I see no reason to report on verbal commitments. They are hollow.

    Likewise, the point guards Ucla “lost” could still change their mind. As could Bluiett. He doesn’t have to sign a ywhere in November – can wait until April as well.

      That’s because “we” is SC, and you don’t play varsity basketball.

    Distance and the Hamilton signing probably had something to do with it. I wanted the kid but better now than later. We want kids who want to be here
