With the Arizona Wildcats’ continued recruitment of guards for the Class of 2015 — something that coach Sean Miller must do to assure players join the program — five-star guard Tyler Dorsey de-committed Saturday morniing.

He made the announcement via an emailed statement. In his statement, Dorsey writes: “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, a 6-foot-4 guard from St. John Bosco (Calif.), committed to the Wildcats in January. When Arizona took a commitment from five-star point guard Justin Simon and extended offers to some other guards, Dorsey started to waver. It was rumored that he would de-commit after workouts in Colorado Springs, Colo., with the Team USA U-18 team, of which Miller is an assistant coach.

Dorsey did not survive the initial cut of 15 players. Potential Arizona guard recruits Allonzo Trier and Isaiah Briscoe.

According to various recruiting agencies, Dorsey will likely open his recruitment to UConn, Kansas, Duke and UCLA, among others. publisher, writer and editor Javier Morales is a former Arizona Press Club award winner. He also writes articles for Bleacher Report and Lindy’s College Sports.
