Scottsdale (AZ.) Saguaro junior quarterback and Badger commit, Kare Lyles returned back to his one time home of Wisconsin and now his future college for their spring game on Saturday. He goes over the details of his awesome trip to Madison, getting to resonate good fond memories and seeing the the great opportunity he has at the next level.
“It was awesome as expected,” Lyles told BadgerNation. “Seeing the coaches a second time around, continuing to build a stronger relationship with them. I loved seeing practice, enjoyed seeing who I’ll be going up against and was impressed on how fast practice goes, even coming from a school like Saguaro in which we run a high tempo offense. I love seeing all my dads old teammates as well. I remember guys like Mike London, Lamar Shakafur, JC Dawkins and Ron Dayne coming to my house from time to time and now having them hyped up that I’m going back was just awesome.”
“The trip just made me mentally have a little grasp of the opportunities I’ll have ahead. I’m looking to do special things with this class coming in and with this team! Antonio (Williams) and myself have some big goals coming in next year and we remind each other to work towards these goals everyday, can’t wait to officially come up in January.”
After watching the quarterbacks and getting a glimpse of how Chryst’s offense at Wisconsin would look, the 6-0, 210-pound signal caller feels ready for the challenge ahead to compete and play.
“I personally believed that the more you study the offense, greater fit you’ll be,” said Lyles. “I believe I’ll fit great into that offense because I’m going to come in wanting to perfect it in every aspect, becoming a true student of the game.”
Lyles tag teamed with fellow Badger commit, junior defensive end Luke Benzschawel on campus recruiting other various uncommitted prospects like Kansas City (MO.) Rockhurst junior speedster wide out, A.J. Taylor.
“Me and AJ were talking a lot,” said Lyles. “I love that we both have the same goal as becoming very successful in college. I feel we would do great things together. I saw his film and he reminds me in a lot of ways like my receiver last year Christian Kirk. He said he loved it up here and I am looking forward to continuing to build a better relationship with him.”
With his dad, Kevin Lyles, playing in Madison from 1993-1996, Kare Lyles is a legacy recruit, but he is not the only one in the family. His younger brother, Kayden Lyles is highly coveted already as a sophomore and holds a Badger offer. Still, he is uncommitted and despite the strong ties to the Badger program, his family is not pushing him in any direction.
“Kayden enjoyed it a lot,” said Lyles. “I don’t really push it on him because he grew up in Wisconsin and he went on the visits, so he knows what’s here for him. It’s his decision and we as a family are not forcing anything on him to go here. My parents and myself will support wherever he goes, but he had a great time up here as well.”
Lyles now ranks the No. 68 quarterback in the nation and a three star commit by Scout
