Lyle talks visit

Oregon hosted five-star JaQuan Lyle on a weekend visit. The Indiana native had a good time and talks about how things went overall and what his impressions were.

As one of only three remaining uncommitted five-star prospects in the 2014 class, JaQuan Lyle is in the spotlight. The Huntington (WV) Prep standout took a weekend visit to Oregon. It was Lyle's first official visit, and the trip went well.

"I got to see the whole campus," said Lyle. "I saw the facilities, saw a great game, and saw the arena. Everything was great."

Lyle has built a strong relationship with Oregon assistant Tony Stubblefield as well as Head Coach Dana Altman. This visit only strengthened those relationships and gave him a good feel for the university.

"Overall it think the visit went great," said Lyle. "I love it and if I could take another official visit to Oregon I would for sure, it was that good of a trip."

Initially Lyle committed to Louisville, and one of the reasons for that was his desire to stay close to home. A native of Evansville, Indiana, Oregon is obviously a long way from home. Still Lyle says it is something that can be overcome.

"Oregon is pretty far away, but if it is the place that is going to get me better and help me make my dreams into a reality then it is something I'm going to do," said Lyle. "If Oregon is the school I choose I'll definitely adapt to things there."

This is the only visit scheduled for Lyle at the moment. Other schools such as Kansas, Providence, Oklahoma State, and West Virginia remain very much in the mix for Lyle who doesn't have a specific timeframe for making a commitment.

The No. 22 prospect in the country, Lyle has had an excellent senior season and is playing the best basketball of his career.
