5-star SG JaQuan Lyle commits to Oregon Ducks


On Wednesday, the Oregon Ducks got one of the biggest commitments in the history of their program.

5-star guard JaQuan Lyle gave his pledge to the Ducks.

The 6’5, 215-pounder attends Huntington Prep in West Virginia.

He narrowed his choices down to Oregon and the Memphis Tigers a few days ago.

Andrew Grief of The Oregonian has the scoop.

“I had a good relationship with the head coach and the assistant coaches so right then I knew it was a good decision from the jump,” Lyle told the Evansville Courier-Press, describing himself as a combo guard.

He envisions his role as “just come in right away and play impact minutes,” saying that Oregon’s coaches pitched to him the possibility of “coming in and me playing right away. Just playing impact minutes was the main thing.”

Lyle, a former Louisville Cardinals commitment, is a 5-star prospect according to 24/7 Sports, but is a 4-star composite recruit.

He is considered the seventh best shooting guard prospect, the top overall prospect in the state of West Virginia and the 22nd best overall prospect in the class of 2014.

Lyle also had offers from the Arizona Wildcats, Kansas Jayhawks and Oklahoma State Cowboys, among many others.
