Trevon Bluiett Decommits from UCLA

UPDATE:   

Park Tudor High’s forward Trevon Bluiett has decided to open up his recruitment, a month after committing to UCLA. The 6’6, 205 lb Bluiett, ranked No. 46 nationally in the 2014 class by Rivals.com, informed UCLA assistant Ed Schilling, his former high school coach at Park Tudor, in person after an open gym on Thursday. “I think the distance part of it played a factor,” said Bluiett’s father, Reynardo Bluiett. “When he sat down and thought about it, I think the distance from home was hard for him.” UCLA became a major player for Bluiett when new coach Steve Alford hired Schilling. Before making his commitment on Sept. 2, Bluiett had cut his list to Arizona, Butler, Indiana, Michigan, Purdue, UCLA and Xavier.

ANALYSIS:

Bluiett has taken just one official visit, to UCLA. He’d planned to take an official visit to Purdue but cancelled it when he made his commitment. His father said it was too early to know which schools will be a part of the recruiting process moving forward, but the same Midwest schools that had previously recruited him will likely be in the mix again. Bluiett's decommitment continues a trend among top Class of 2014 Indiana high school players. In addition to Bluiett, Trey Lyles, James Blackmon, JaQuan Lyle, Bryant McIntosh and Ernie Duncan have all backed out of their initial commitments.
