THE LIST: Class of 2014 Rivals150
In the class of 2014, the state of Indiana is on an unprecedented run of top prospects backing off their original commitments. Thursday, UCLA was the latest to feel the sting of a Hoosier State decommitment.
Rumors surfaced Wednesday that four-star wing Trevon Bluiett could be looking to open things up and Thursday evening, Bluiett's father Rey confirmed that the product of Indianapolis (Ind.) Park Tudor had indeed opened things up.
"It is true, Trevon is reopened," the elder Bluiett texted Rivals.com. "Distance ended up being a potential isssue."
A 6-foot-5 swingman who currently ranks No. 45 in the class of 2014, Bluiett is among the nation's premier jump shooters from deep and will undoubtedly be a hot target.
With Bluiett now backing off a commitment, the top five players in Indiana's senior class have all backed off of initial commitments. Five-stars Trey Lyles and James Blackmon both backed off of commitments they made to Indiana. Five-star guard JaQuan Lyle backed out of his Louisville commitment and three-star combo guard Bryant McIntosh backed out on Indiana State before committing to Northwestern.
Immediately jumping out as possibilities are hometown Butler and Xavier just a few hour drive away.
