Three-star guard Aric Demings commits to Utah Tech

One of the best long range shooters in his senior year at Lone Star University decided to go to college. Today, Arik Demings announced that he would continue his basketball career at Utah Tech.

“Once they contacted me, I could tell how much they really care about their players,” Demings said of his commitment. “This is a family program. When I came to visit, the head coach did everything with me. I could tell they had a great jump culture.”

6-foot security guard from Duncanville, Texas, Demings preferred Trailblazers to offers from Loyola Marymount, Morgan State and the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. He joins the competitive sniper Angelo Kambala provide Utah Institute of Technology with one of the best backcourt recruiting classes in the Western Athletic Conference.

“I spoke to Gelo and he was one of the first to know about my commitment,” Demings said. “I can’t wait because I feel that we can take the program to the next level with him. I love his game and he loves mine. I’m very happy that we can work together.”

A three-time state champion at Duncanville High School, Demings has spent most of his career playing in one of the most winning programs in high school basketball history. He plans to continue doing the same at St. George.

“I want to do big things,” Demings said. “Their fans should expect hard work and a winning attitude. I know the program has a vision. I have a vision and our goals are aligned, so I’m ready to work.”

Demings, who received three stars, is ranked 52nd in the 247Sports 2023 position rankings.
