It’s been quite a week in Los Angeles so far for Arizona Wildcats coach Sean Miller.

A night after his top-ranked team defeated UCLA 79-75 at Pauley Pavilion, he secured the commitment of five-star junior guard Tyler Dorsey from St. John Bosco of Bellflower, Calif.

Miller attended Dorsey’s game against JSerra Catholic High School on Friday night, according to the Los Angeles Times. Dorsey tweeted the news of his commitment at midnight Tucson time.

This news is just more of the same for Arizona and Miller, who has been an unstoppable recruiting force, especially in California.

Dorsey, a 6-4, 175-pound combo guard, is rated the fourth-best player in the 2015 class by 247Sports, the No. 5 player by and the seventh-best prospect by and Dorsey has said in interviews that Arizona has been recruiting him since the eighth grade.

Duke, UCLA, UConn, Louisville, Florida, Kentucky and Kansas were among Dorsey’s many suitors.
