Bluiett had originally committed to UCLA in September, but decided to reopen the process to find a school closer to home.

“There were a lot of things that attracted me to them,” Bluiett said of Xavier. “(Coach Chris Mack and assistant Travis Steele) were consistent throughout the recruiting process. There were a lot of curveballs in the process, but they always had the same message. When you look at the school, it’s a good program that’s in the Big East now and with their style of play it will fit me well.
