Trevon Bluiett decommits from UCLA

Trevon Bluiett, the No. 43 player overall and No. 11 small forward in the ESPN 100, decommitted from UCLA on Thursday night, less than a month after committing to the Bruins.

According to the Indianapolis Star, Bluiett (Indianapolis/Park Tudor) told his former high school coach and current UCLA assistant Ed Schilling that the school's distance from home played a role in his decision.

Before Bruins coach Steve Alford snagged the sharp-shooting wing, it had appeared that Bluiett would land at Butler. But once Brad Stevens took the Boston Celtics job, Bluiett began looking at other schools.

Those schools, which include Michigan and Indiana, appear to have an inside track for the four-star prospect as the November early signing period looms.

Bluiett's decision marked the Bruins' second loss on the recruiting trail this week. Earlier, up-and-coming ESPN 100 big man Michael Humphrey (Phoenix/Sunnyslope), a top UCLA target, narrowed his list to Arizona and Stanford.
