  • Tyler Dorsey Decommits from Arizona (UPDATED)

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Two days after his father reaffirmed his commitment to Arizona, Tyler Dorsey has officially decommitted.

    “As much as I love the Arizona basketball program as well as the awesome Wildcat fans and highly respect Head Coach Sean Miller and the entire Arizona staff, I realize that, in hindsight, I rushed my college choice and did not provide myself with the greatest opportunity to explore and thoroughly investigate all my possible college options,” Dorsey said, in part, in a statement.

    “After very careful personal reflection and discussing this issue in depth with my parents, I feel I owe it to myself to open up my recruiting at this time and fully experience the recruiting process in order to allow myself to make the best possible choice for my future. I am pleased that Coach Miller understands and respects my decision to do this and hope that Arizona will continue to be a college option for me.”

    The 6-foot-4 Los Angeles St. John Bosco point guard committed to Arizona in January, and had offers from  Duke, Louisville, Kansas, Texas. UConn, Cal, UCLA and USC among others.

    “I expect schools like UConn, Kansas, Duke, UCLA, Washington, Cal, USC, Arizona State, Louisville, Texas, SMU, UNLV, Marquette, St. John’s, Florida State, Oregon, Oregon State and Tulsa to quickly jump into Tyler’s recruitment,” Dinos Trigonis of the Belmont Shore AAU program said.

    Dorsey and Arizona commit Justin Simon were just cut from the USA U18 team where Arizona coach Sean Miller is an assistant.
