Recruiting Update: “Vile Lyle” Inks LOI

 

Basketball Recruiting

LYLELOI - WTD!!!

Jaquan Lyle (5-Star/Huntington, WV/Rivals150) posted his LOI on Instagram.

Sometimes no matter how committed an athlete is, the apprehension surrounding the recruitment only subsides when a fresh letter of intent slowly emerges from the fax machine.

Oregon head coach Dana Altman netted top guard Jaquan Lyle (5-Star/Huntington, WV/Rivals150) last month but locked up the touted shooter for good when Lyle released a photo of his signed letter of intent to suit up for the Ducks.

Lyle, a 6-foot-5, 215 lb. scorer, will battle for early playing time and even the title of ‘starter’ thanks to impressive shooting and playmaking ability when given the ball in the fray.  

On the flip side, Lyle is no stranger to facilitating and getting his teammates involved, a key component to Altman’s on-court mantra.  Lyle’s addition elevates Oregon’s backcourt to easily one of, if not the top unit in the nation, WTD!

Football Recruiting

News

Offensive linemen Kieffer Longson (3-Star/San Ramon, CA) and Dru Samia (NR/Danville, CA) were both in Eugene over the weekend to check out the latest edition of Oregon football.  Offensive line coach Steve Greatwood treated the recruits to a tour and the dealings of Duck spring ball, seeking encouraging feedback from both trench behemoths.

Longson (6-foot-7, 295 lbs.) and Samia (6-foot-4, 275 lbs.) could both fit into Greatwood’s schemes and could both wind up Ducks when all is said and done.  Stay tuned!
