One of the best players in the 2014 class that the Kentucky Wildcats remain heavily involved in is five-star Indianapolis power forward Trey Lyles, who just announced via his instagram that he is down to the Louisville Cardinals and UK as to where he will attend college:
Lyles, a former Indiana University commitment, officially visited UL three weeks ago and has official visits scheduled for UK on Oct. 18 for Big Blue Madness. Lyles is arguably the best uncommitted player that either school has a legitimate shot of landing right now, and his commitment could drastically affect who controls in-state bragging-rights for as long as he’s in college.
Trey is a very skilled post player at this point. Offensively he has advanced post moves. He likes to face the basket and can shoot with range to 17 feet. He can also put the ball on the floor some and score versus post players. He can score in the low block but even then prefers to turn and face. His potential is limitless right now. He is smooth and effortless. He reminds you of a young Tim Duncan offensively. Lyles is a solid defender. He can block some shots defensively. Lyles has noticeably added strength and can score from anywhere on the floor. He scores in the low post with great patience he attacks under control and may be the best move and counter move low post score in the class. He has a variety of moves and his game extends to the arc.
