Kyle Guy has solid weekend at adidas Gauntlet

Lawrence Central guard Kyle Guy averaged 16 points in five games over the weekend at the adidas Gauntlet event at the Fishers Fieldhouse. He had 23 on 8-of-12 shooting in his final game on Sunday.

Kyle Guy wanted to play for Indiana Elite this summer because he believed it would give him a better opportunity to play against the best competition.

So far he is making the most of that opportunity. Over the weekend, in the adidas Gauntlet event at Fishers (Ind.) Fieldhouse, Guy was a steady presence. He scored in double figures in each of his five games with a high game of 23 on Sunday in a 65-61 victory over Stackhouse Elite. In that game, he hit 8-of-12 shots from the field.

In the five games total, the 6-2 shooting guard from Lawrence Central averaged 16.4 points per game. His team went 4-1 with the only loss coming to the Atlantic Celtics.

Guy is a big Indiana target in the class of 2016. His offers to date are from IU, Purdue and Indiana State but he's getting interest from a wide range of schools. The 3-star guard, according to Scout.com, said he was being recruited by "most of the Big Ten" along with California, Louisville, Xavier, Butler and Cincinnati the most.

Guy said Indiana is definitely in the mix. He wouldn't say if he had a favorite at this point.

"I've had a lot of contact with Indiana,'' Guy said. "I talk to coach Crean a lot and the other coaches, too. With IU, they told me when they offered me the scholarship that I could make an immediate impact if I worked at it. I really like what they're doing down there.''

Guy said the one thing he has been working on with his game this summer more than anything else has been to try and shed the label that he's primarily a shooter.

"I've been trying to get rid of that label,'' Guy said. " Everybody thinks I'm just a shooter. So I've been working on everything else plus shooting. I've been working on my driving. I've always rebounded well for my position. I've worked on my defense a lot and my quickness.''

Guy said he is being recruited by most of the schools as a combo guard.

Guy said besides his AAU competition this summer, he is also planning to participate in Michigan's Elite Camp June 7 and said he's hoping to get down to Louisville sometime later in the summer.
