JaQuan Lyle Talks Louisville, Kentucky and More


JaQuan Lyle, one of the top recruits in the 2014 recruiting class, is hearing from both Kentucky and Louisville.

Lyle spoke to CBSSports.com about his recruitment:

Lyle, a 6-foot-4 guard from Bosse (Ind.), is ranked No. 14 in CBSSports.com's class of 2014 rankings. Not surprisingly, several schools are in pursuit of Lyle, with him specifically naming Louisville, Indiana, Purdue, Illinois, Xavier, Ohio State and Michigan State. Kansas State, UCLA, Butler, Kentucky and Kansas are also showing interest.

At the NBPA Top 100 camp, Lyle roomed with Louisville-commit Quentin Snider – and Snider and fellow Cardinal pledge Anton Gill didn't waste any time trying to woo Lyle to Louisville.

“When we were shooting around, they both were like, ‘You better get on board or get run over,” Lyle said. “It's a great school, coach [Rick] Pitino is a great coach. They get out and run and that's what I like to do.”

His most recent offers were from Texas and Georgetown, both coming about two weeks ago. Lyle has a visit set for Tennessee, and he also wants to trip to Indiana, Purdue and Texas. The recent Longhorn offer was special.

“It's always been my dream school,” Lyle said. “[Kevin] Durant, Damian James, D.J. Augustin. It's a great school.”

Kentucky is also making a push for the five-star guard, as assistant Orlando Antigua contacted him last Friday, and head coach John Calipari called him earlier on Monday.

“Coach Orlando is a good dude,” Lyle said. “Coach Calipari produces players.”
