Tech star Trey Lyles backs off on college commitment to Indiana
August 8, 2012Eastern Indiana Sports
Tech High School basketball standout Trey Lyles has decided to rescind his commitment from Indiana and re-open the recruitment process.
Tech coach Jason Delaney said Tuesday that the 6-9 Lyles, who is ranked in the top-10 nationally in the 2014 class by multiple recruiting services, still has Indiana No. 1 on his list. But Lyles, who committed to IU and coach Tom Crean before even playing a high school varsity game, would like to compare it other schools.
“He committed so early,” Delaney said. “He still loves IU and it’s still No. 1 in his book. He just hasn’t had anything to compare it to yet.”
Delaney said he hasn’t been contacted by any schools yet, but that is sure to change quickly.
Lyles was named City Player of the Year as a sophomore, averaging 21.0 points and 14.2 rebounds.
