Even though the Huskies wound up losing their game with Oregon by a score of 26-20, Tyler Lytle said the experience was unforgettable.
"The trip went really well," Lytle told Dawgman.com recently. "I also spoke to coach (Chris) Petersen, coach (Jonathan) Smith, coach (Pete) Kwiatkowski and coach (D'Andre) Goodwin for a while. The fan base and game day feel was unreal.
"They also took my family on a campus tour prior to the game.
"The whole trip was awesome. Game day feel I'd say was my favorite. The stadium was hyped and the fans were into (the game)."
While he didn't come away with an offer, Lytle said the coaches were very forthright and that they could be getting closer to making a decision on him.
"They said they are far along in the process of evaluating me and they have high interest in me," Lytle noted. "I talk to them weekly, so we're staying in contact."
In addition to his interest from the Dawgs, Lytle has been hearing quite a bit from the six schools that have offered as well as several other Power Five programs.
"I talk a lot with the six schools that have offered -- Washington State, Cal, Boston College, Temple, Colorado State and Miami," Lytle said. "I've been hearing from a few Ivy League schools, some of the Pac 12 schools, BYU, Notre Dame and a few ACC programs."
Lytle said he plans to take a couple more unofficial visits before the end of the season although he hasn't set those up yet.
"I definitely want to decide early, so I want to check out as many schools as I can so I can make sure I make the right decision," Lytle noted.
At nearly 6'5" and 200 pounds, Lylte has very good size. He's missed the past five weeks with a leg injury, but hopes to get back in time for the playoffs, depending on how deep the Friars go in the post season.
Servite will close out their regular season with a game against top-ranked St. John Bosco this coming Friday.
