    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    UCLA’s dream recruiting class took a bit of a hit Wednesday when Findlay Prep point guard Dominic Artis decommitted.

    The 6-foot Artis was part of a class that included Oak Hill shooting guard Jordan Adams and St. Anthony point guard Kyle Anderson.

    “He felt like he rushed into his commitment,” Derrick Artis, Dominic’s uncle, told Jeff Borzello of, confirming news reported by “Still loves UCLA and they are the top of his list, but he wants to make sure he is making the right decision.”

    Artis also considered Florida State, Georgia Tech, Baylor and FIU when he committed in July.

    When he committed last month, Anderson said he was looking forward to playing with Artis in the backcourt and said they could coexist.

    Still, even if Artis doesn’t end up back at UCLA, St. Anthony coach Bob Hurley told that the Bruins are getting a “modern-day Magic Johnson” in Anderson.
