Class of 2021 forward Arthur Kaluma gets release from UNLV

Class of 2021 forward Arthur Kaluma has obtained his release from UNLV, according to multiple reports.
The 6-foot-8 Kaluma initially committed Nov. 12, but the program has since had a coaching change with Kevin Kruger replacing T.J. Otzelberger.
According to 247Sports, Kaluma is ranked No. 43 nationally and is the No. 12 power forward.
Kaluma initially chose the Runnin’ Rebels over Arizona State, Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma, Syracuse, Texas A&M, and USC.
“Arthur Kaluma is a 6’8 versatile, skilled player that can play multiple positions,” Dream City Christian head coach KyleWeaver told ZAGSBLOG. “His skill set is unlike many players at 6-foot-8. He loves to work and crashes the glass like no one I’ve ever seen. He’s a walking double double night in and night out. He can shoot the ball and can take you off the dribble and get to the rim. His shooting has been most improved and this season he’s averaging 2.8 threes a game. He’s a great kid and only going to continue to get better because of his work ethic.”
