The Kentucky Wildcats and Louisville Cardinals haven’t had many recruiting battles in recent memory, but the recruitment of Tey Lyles has become one of the biggest recruiting battle between the two schools since Rex Chapman decided to call UK his home over UL.
According to Kyle Neddenriep of the Indy Star, Lyles will announce his decision tomorrow at his high school, and the Cats or the Cards will be one lucky team to land the talented power forward:
Trey Lyles’ 18th birthday is shaping up to be a memorable one.
The 6-10 senior from Tech will make his college decision at 12:50 p.m. on Tuesday at his school. The highly-touted Lyles, the two-time City Player of the Year, has cut his choices to Kentucky and Louisville.
Lyles, a one-time Indiana recruit, is ranked No. 8 nationally in the 2014 class by Rivals.com and is considered a top-10 player in the country by all of the recruiting services.
Lyles averaged 17.9 points, 12.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.3 blocked shots as a junior at Tech. Lyles took an official visit to UL in August. He officially visited Kentucky during Big Blue Madness, and the reviews he gave were as good as one could hope for.
Many national recruiting experts still have UK pegged as the favorite, but we’ll find out for sure tomorrow.
