Scout.com has reported that 5 star prospect JaQuan Lyle’s list is down to six schools.
Lyle’s list of suitors was once very long, but it is now down to six. The Evansville (Ind.) Bosse guard will likely make his campus visits in the coming year, and his decision will be much easier now that is down to less than ten.
“My final six are Florida, Indiana, Louisville, Ohio State, Tennessee, and Illinois and that is in no order,” Lyle via texted to Scout.com.
Lyle is the twelfth best prospect in the country according to Scout and any of the above schools would be lucky to have him. He has a smooth handle and shooting stroke; he also plays with a fire and energy that scouts love. He would be a great fit with Illinois Head Coach John Groce, but I could also see him landing somewhere else, possibly somewhere in the Big 10 I venture to guess. Illinoishas impressed me lately with their recruiting and I have seen some of their recruits play on local Simeon Academy.
Illinois’s recruiting has impressed me almost as much as DePaul’s recruiting has disappointed me. When will you ever take advantage of Chicago’s local talent Blue Demons? When! When God?! (Arms outstretched to the sky)
Congratulations to Lyle and I’m hoping he lands with the Illini.
