Next Commit JaQuan Lyle? 


Any guesses on the next commit?  I was guessing JaQuan Lyle - I don't think we are in the running for Trey Lyles anymore but who knows?

RE: Next Commit JaQuan Lyle? 


I think JaQuan Lyle is enjoying the recruiting process way too much to make a decision any time soon. He had narrowed his list to 10 schools several weeks ago, then got calls from Duke & UCLA in December. I fully expect that he will take all 5 official visits, and draw it out as long as possible. He was at IU for the MSU game, then at Illinois for the Michigan game. Seems like a kid who likes the attention, and won't let on about who might be his leader. Many think it will come down to IU, UK, or Louisville--but it's still very early.

IMO, Dante Exum is likely to commit sooner, but am not sure about our chances. When he didn't commit after traveling all the way from Australia for a visit to IU, it signaled that he won't be deciding any time soon, either. Frankly, I think with Exum you get all of the talent and none of the drama that could attach to Lyle.

It would also make sense for Coach Crean to slow-play this process a bit as well. We have plenty of offers on the table, so he can't control if a kid wants to commit early--but I believe he wishes he didn't feel like he had to decide between Vonleh and Anya when the scholarship situation became critical.

As for Trey Lyles, we'll see Manti Te'o's girlfriend in candy stripes sooner.

Well, go figure.  Looks like JaQuan has eliminated Kentucky tonight, possibly replacing them with Florida.  At least he's keeping the number at 10:

Here are some clips from last summer.  Lyle is #8 in the dark uniform, and either #8, #11, or #5 in the white.  Should be easy enough to pick him out.
