(2014) PG JaQuan Lyle to Oregon

Recommended Posts

I was thinking he was gonna be a package deal with JB2. Have to see. Would be nice to get him, but not holding my breath. We will already have a loaded bench next season.

Players talk about package deals, but they don't happen all that often.

Nope, and unfortunately, verbal commitments are just words until November 13th. I have high hopes, but don't get majorly excited until the name goes on the dotted line.

JaQuan visiting West Virginia and even having them on his list is, to me, a way of keeping a team near him in his race just to keep people in the state happy during basketball season. They aren't nearly as much of a threat as Kansas and Memphis.

I can't really see people in the state being overly concerned with that though.  Huntington Prep is more national, than local.  Most states aren't like Indiana in that.  In Indiana there is definitely some bias in Mr. Basketball historically to IU.  Most states aren't like that.  Plus, with them being more of a team that plays all over the US during the season, in state people don't care as much.

Yeah I totally get that and agree 100%, I'm just saying that there really isn't much of a reason to have them on there other than the fact that he plays in West Virginia.

I do think Bob Huggins used to be popular in his neck of the woods.  But, I agree with you there.

Has Kansas even offered him?  The only site showing him having a Kansas offer is ESPN.

I'm almost positive they have, probably before the commitment to Louisville, and are still honoring it after he decommitted. If they haven't, better for us.

Might be worried about his grades, Wvu's admission standards are surely lower than IU's.
Not saying he isn't smart, but most people I know tried to get a good nights rest before we took our SATS.

Oregon checked JL out twice this past weekend and offered. WVU and KU was also in attendance. He does have an offer from KU and that combo with Alexander my still be out there. Not sure if we made it or not from my post above.

 

EDIT: Guess KU didn't see him.

Kansas will be tough to beat on this one. Our depth with Yogi (if he's there) will scare Lyle away. I think this comes down to eBay happens to Yogi
