In the three days since he decided to break off his commitment to Indiana and consider other schools, Trey Lyles has read the messages sent to him on Twitter from IU fans.
Some are nasty. Some are not. But the 6-9 Lyles, a standout junior basketball player at Tech High School, knew there would be fallout when he reopened his recruitment.
Speaking publicly for the first time Friday about his decision, Lyles reiterated that Indiana is still No. 1 on his list. He has talked with Indiana coach Tom Crean and his staff and been assured that the Hoosiers would still recruit him.
