Illinois Basketball Recruiting: Jaquan Lyle Visits Indiana


2014 shooting guard Jaquan Lyle unofficially visited the Indiana Hoosiers on January 23rd. He was at Indiana to watch their game against Penn State. The Hoosiers defeated the Nittany Lions, 72-49.

Lyle has offers from eighteen teams. These teams include: Illinois, Indiana, Louisville, Ohio State, Cincinnati, Georgetown, North Carolina State, Tennessee, Texas, Iowa, Memphis, Miami, Michigan State, Oklahoma State, Providence, Purdue, Wake Forest, and Xavier.

Out of those eighteen offers, it is projected that Lyle is most interested in Illinois, Indiana, Louisville, and Ohio State.

Lyle is a 6’5″, 190 pound shooting guard from Evansville, Indiana. He plays at Bosse High School.

The Boosse Bulldogs are currently 12-3 this season. They defeated Boonville High School, 82-68, in their last game. In that game, Lyle almost had a triple-double as he recorded 21 points, 10 rebounds, and seven assists.

Jaquan is a very skilled guard. His biggest skills are his ability to get into the lane, the range on his shot (up to 19 feet), and his excellent court vision.

The four-star recruit is currently ranked 2nd in the state of Indiana, 7th among shooting guards, and 20th nationally among 2014 high school recruits by 247Sports.
