Former Salesian star commits to UCLA

I’m a few days late getting this posted, but former Salesan High basketball star Dominic Artis recently committed to UCLA. Artis, who is transferring to Findlay Prep in Henderson, Nev., for his senior season, is a 6-foot point guard who averaged 14 points and four assists last season for the California Interscholastic Federation Division IV Northern regional champions. Artis was a member of the Pride’s 2009 state championship team.

“I’m really excited,” Artis told the Los Angeles Times. “It could be a great class. Of course I would want to start, but if I had to come off the bench and sacrifice for the team, it would be OK.”
