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.

Although, he has stated that he has cut his options down to eleven teams.

It is projected that he is heavily 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 13-4 this season. They defeated Evansville North High School, 85-70, in their last game. In that game, Lyle almost had a triple-double as he recorded 30 points, 14 rebounds, and nine assists.

The four-star recruit is currently ranked 2nd in the state of Indiana, 7th among shooting guards, and 19th nationally among 2014 high school recruits by 247Sports.
