Highly-touted high school guard Tyler Dorsey confirmed Saturday that he is decommitting from Arizona.

Dorsey, who was expected to join Arizona in 2015, said in a statement that he will open himself up to the recruitment process. He committed to Arizona in January.

“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,” he said.

Dorsey said in the statement that he informed Miller of his decision.

“I believe that I am entitled to make sure that my ultimate college choice will provide me with the best possible experience and opportunity to maximize my potential as a player, student and person,” he said.

The 6-foot-4 guard from St. John Bosco (Calif.) is ranked the No. 12 overall among Class of 2015 recruits, according to 247Sports.

Rumors surfaced that Dorsey was becoming ambivalent about Arizona after the team received commitments from other highly-recruited guards.

Dorsey is expected to be recruited by top programs from all over the country.
