A Shot to the Heart: Lyles Opens Recruitment

So, the first bump in the road for Crean on the recruitment front has appeared. Trey Lyles of the class of 2014 has officially reopened his recruitment. Currently in the top 10 for juniors on ESPNU, Lyles was one of the biggest headlines for Indiana when he committed as a freshman at Arsenal Tech. Before he committed to Indiana, he took a visit to Ohio State, and Purdue was also in the mix. But I have a feeling that more schools are going to be factors. Actually, that is a fact. He is only going to be a junior and his skills have improved exponentially from when he was a freshman. He is a 6’8″ machine that can do it all. Don’t be surprised if you start hearing Kentucky or Duke being thrown around. There is still not enough information on where else he is going to look, but his high school coach insists that Indiana is still his #1 choice. But let’s all be honest, how may times in college sports, not just basketball, does a kid decommit from a school and then go back there? The chances are not in our favor with Lyles. But don’t get too down all you Hoosier fans. Crean is still in hot pursuit for Cliff Alexander of Chicago, Theo Pinson of North Carolina, and JaQuan Lyle, who might be the one who could take Lyles spot. It is a bump in the road, but it isn’t going to derail Indiana’s recruiting. It is one player. You need a team of at least 8 solid players, and Crean already has that. All will be okay, I promise.

Where will Trey Lyles play his college basketball?
