Trey Lyles visit to U of L: 'Very positive'

Indianapolis Tech five-star Class of 2014 prospect Trey Lyles made a surprise unofficial visit to the University of Louisville on Sunday. It was his first visit of the season, but Lyles has several others planned. Cardinal Authority has more about the visit and his plans for the rest of the season.

Trey Lyles, the nation's No. 1 power forward in the Class of 2014, hasn't been focused on his recruitment during his junior season at Indianapolis Tech.

But the former Indiana University commitment took his first unofficial visit of the season on Sunday when he watched the University of Louisville defeat Marquette in a white out at the KFC Yum! Center.

"We haven't done much with the recruiting process," Tom Lyles, the players father told Cardinal Authority. "At this point, we haven't even talked a lot about it. We're focused on the season and making a state run.

"(The U of L game) was the first time we have been to a game all season."

The elder Lyles attended the game with his son and wife and said the Yum Center experience was "very, very positive."

"It was a good time and a great atmosphere," Tom Lyles said. "We spent some time with coach (Rick) Pitino. We just wanted to get a feel for what it was like. We really haven't been anywhere but Assembly Hall in Bloomington.

"So, it was nice to see what it was like."

Lyles said the family will attend a game at Butler on Tuesday might and then watch Kentucky play in Rupp Arena on Saturday.

The 6-foot-9, 225-pound Lyles is being heavily recruited by those three schools along with Duke, Florida, UCLA, Michigan State, Georgetown and a bunch of others. He's averaging 20 points and 17 rebounds a game for Tech.

"We're really not focused on the process right now, but we did want him to get a feel for what's out there," Tom Lyles said.
