Lyles continues adding offers

2017 Scottsdale (Ariz.) Saguaro offensive lineman nabs Michigan State recently, among others. He talks some other recent offers and a school he is hearing from that hasn't offered yet.

Not even into his sophomore year, Scottsdale (Ariz.) Saguaro offensive lineman Kayden Lyles is on the brink of double digit offers.

Last week, Michigan State joined the mix as the Spartans extended him an offer as quarterbacks coach Brad Salem paid Lyles a visit.

"He just said they really want me there and watched my film and thought highly of me, so they wanted to offer me," he said.

The 6-foot-3, 300-pound offensive guard said it has been amazing seeing so many offers come his way so early. When it comes to Michigan State, though, he admits he doesn't know a lot about the Spartans.

"I've gotta get into researching it," he said. "It was sudden that they offered."

Lyles does hail from Big Ten country, being born in Indiana and raised in Wisconsin until he moved to Arizona two years ago.

The Badgers have extended an offer, one that meant something to Lyles given his roots in the state.

"It was a good one, knowing that my parents went there," he said.

Among the other offers are UCLA, Arizona, Arizona State and Utah, while one school that hasn't offered has been in contact more than others.

"Stanford just came by a few times," he said. "That's about it that hasn't offered."

While his recruitment has plenty of time to unfold still, Lyles does know what he is looking for in a school that will one day secure his commitment.

"It has to be me," he said. "It has to be a good atmosphere around it. I want to go somewhere I really like."
