On Sunday evening, five star forward Trey Lyles said that he would be making some sort of an announcement on Monday. Many speculated that the Indianapolis native would announce his college decision; however his father quickly let everyone know that his son wouldn’t be announcing his decision.
Lyles had been down to just four schools, Louisville, Kentucky, Butler and Indiana for the past few months. However, the big announcement that we had been waiting for was that Lyles had cut Butler and Florida from his list. He sent out this picture via his Instagram account at 6:45 on Monday evening saying that he was down the Louisville and Kentucky.
As I’m sure you’re already aware, Lyles has been Rick Pitino’s top target for quite some time. Lyles took an unofficial visit to Louisville on Sept. 1. He later described the visit as “great.” Kentucky is considered to be the favorite, but Pitino isn’t going down without a fight. He was in Indianapolis last week for an in-home visit with Lyles.
He’ll visit Kentucky for their midnight madness on Oct. 18. The 6-foot-10, 245-pound, prospect had initially said that he’d sign with a school in the fall during the early signing period. However, his father now says that he’ll likely wait and sign in the spring.
