After being committed to the UCLA Bruins for quite some time, Dominic Artis, one of the best point guards in the country, recently had a change of heart and is looking at other programs. Artis, a senior at Findlay Prep, left the Bruins because of worries over playing time once he arrived on campus.
ESPN currently ranks the speedy point guard No. 72 overall in the class of 2012. As for where he will take visits, Coast2Coast Hoops has the details:
Dominic Artis will visit Oregon this weekend. Will also set up visits to Memphis and Kansas
Artis has visited just about every prominent program on the west coast thus far in his recruitment and it appears he may look across the entire country for the school of his dreams.
The Ducks do not currently have any players committed for the class of 2012, though they did pull in a stellar class for 2011, led by shooting guard Jabari Brown. Artis would be a great addition to the UO hoops program and would immediately give Dana Altman a point guard to build around.
