Major early interest in Guy

Shooting guard Kyle Guy is one of the top prospects in the state of Indiana in 2016.

There is no shortage of recruiting attention coming in for Indianapolis (Ind.) Lawrence Central guard Kyle Guy. The 6-foot-2 Guy is a high level scorer, and proved himself at the 17 and under level all summer long. Now he is looking forward to a big high school season.

"Our chemistry is outstanding this year," said Guy. "We have people who know their roles. I will be more of a leader and a scorer, and I will just try to make the right plays."

As a freshman Guy snuck up on some people, now as a sophomore he will be the target of opposing scouting reports. With that Guy knew he had to continue to get better, and said he has worked hard on his game.

"I have been working on everything," said Guy. "Obviously getting stronger has been a major focus. Also I've worked on my ball handling, my jump shot, just everything."

Recruiting wise a whole host of schools are paying attention to Guy and have stopped by to see him.

"Everybody has been by," explained Guy. "It has been Tennessee, Michigan, Ohio State, Xavier, UCLA, Indiana, Purdue, Butler, and that is pretty much."

He continued, "I have been to Butler and Purdue practices, and I went on visits to Xavier, Tennessee, Ohio State, and Michigan."

The Indiana Hoosiers offered Guy after the summer, and it was big for him. So far he says Indiana has done a good job of building a relationship with him.

"I have a good relationship with Indiana," said Guy. "The offer from them was pretty amazing. I appreciated it a lot, and I am blessed to have it."

One school that hasn't yet offered is Purdue. However the Boilermakers continue to show Guy a ton of attention.

"Coach (Matt) Painter says that he likes to get a relationship with you before he offers," said Guy of the Boilers. "I've been in contact with him and Coach (Jack) Owens and we are starting to get a good relationship."

Butler is located only minutes from Guy's house, and the Big East school seems set on making him a priority in the 2016 class.

"When Coach (Brandon) Miller just became the coach I called Coach (Michael) Lewis, and he told me when June 15 comes I will be a guy they are looking to offer," Guy explained. "Butler is a great school, and I like Coach Miller a lot."

For now Guy says he is in no hurry to make a college decision and wants to gain as much information about each school as he can.
