Trey Lyles originally committed to Indiana in September 2010 – when he was just beginning his freshman year of high school.
Nearly two years later, Lyles is back on the market.
“Trey Lyles has opened his recruitment,” Jason Delaney, Lyles’ high school coach, tweeted. “He loves IU & it is still #1 but he would like to have something to compare it to.”
Lyles, a 6-foot-9 power forward from Arsenal Tech (Ind.), is currently ranked No. 9 in CBSSports.com’s Top 50 for 2014. He is one of the most skilled offensive players in the country, with the ability to knock down shots from the perimeter or take defenders off the dribble and finish at the rim.
Sources indicate that Lyles believed he committed too early, and wanted the feeling of being recruited.
It’s unclear which schools will now get involved with Lyles, as he committed so early in the process. With that said, such a talented player will undoubtedly garner plenty of attention from the best of the best.
Interestingly, Indiana coach Tom Crean took to Twitter earlier Tuesday to comment on recruiting committed players.
"We think that more and more people never stop recruiting other school's pledges," he tweeted. "Way of life."
With Lyles no longer in the fold, James Blackmon is the lone Indiana commit in the class of 2014.
