Kyle Guy updates recruiting, talks Indiana

2016 guard Kyle Guy spoke with on Thursday to update his recruitment.

LAS VEGAS -- Tom Crean has made it quite clear in the third July evaluation period: Kyle Guy is a priority for him in the 2016 class.

Crean has already watched Guy play three times at the adidas Super 64 this week in Las Vegas, and he seems committed to having at least one coach at every one of Guy's games.

Butler and Xavier sent assistant coaches to see Guy, but Crean was on hand to see Guy himself.

"It's a true honor to have these coaches watching me play," Guy told on Thursday. "I do realize it, and a lot of other schools like Butler and Xavier are at all my games, too."

Guy and Indiana Elite finished pool play 3-0 in Vegas, capped by an emphatic 18-point win over Dream Vision, which features five-star forward Chase Jeter.

Indiana Elite doesn't have any five-star talent, but it plays well together and consistently beats team with elite players.

Guy finished with a team-high 17 points and five rebounds in the win over Dream Vision.

"I love it because everyone hates us," Guy said. "We don't have a five-star guy anywhere on the board, but we're all great players and we play well together. We're all good friends off the court so it works out."

Guy, while slender in stature, has continued to improve since the beginning of the AAU period. The 2016 guard is playing up a class, but it doesn't look like it. He's an excellent ball handler, has very good passing skills and continues to shoot the ball well from the perimeter.

"Last year, people labeled me as a shooter, and I hated that term," Guy said. "I got in the gym all summer and this year, i'm trying to be not just a shooter, but a driver and my defense is better."

Guy said he talks to every Indiana coach at least once a week and remains interested in the Hoosiers. He has picked up new interest from Virginia -- "and they're coming hard" -- and he plans to visit Louisville and Xavier in August once AAU dies down. Top Stories
