JaQuan Lyle Has Top 4 and 3 Visits Set; Targeting March Decision (UPDATED)

JaQuan Lyle has a top four and will take two officials in the next week and another in March.

He then plans to make a decision over spring break March 15-23, he confirmed to SNY.tv after previously telling Grant Traylor of the Huntington Herald-Dispatch.

“My four is Oregon, Oklahoma State, Kansas and Memphis,” he told SNY.tv.

“If I’m not sold on one of those schools, I will take another visit to either Providence or Georgetown.

“I go to Oklahoma State this weekend, Kansas on Monday and Memphis March 7.”

Oregon head coach Dana Altman and assistant Tony Stubblefield are also expected to visit with Lyle’s mother on Thursday in Evansville, Ind., before they watch Lyle and Huntington Prep play later in the day.

“Yes, they are coming for my game tomorrow and going to see my mom,” Lyle said.

The 6-foot-5 Lyle has already visited Oregon and will visit Oklahoma State Friday-Sunday and Kansas Monday-Wednesday. Lyle turns 18 on Monday.

Oklahoma State has pitched that Lyle could potentially replace Marcus Smart, while Kansas needs a combo guard and Lyle is tight with incoming Kansas big man Cliff Alexander.

“Me and Cliff, we’ve been tight since about our eighth-grade year and our relationship just grew, so now he’s like a brother to me,” Lyle told SNY.tv. “Just the opportunity to play with him would be wonderful. Cliff makes me better, I make him better. Every big man  wants a point guard who can get them the ball in the right place that they can score, make the job easier for them. And every point guard wants a big man who can get them open and get them an opportunity to make them look better.”

No visit date for Providence has been finalized, Lyle’s mother told SNY.tv.

@AdamZagoria Interesting cause Kansas, Oregon & Memphis are loaded at guard & OSU has Jared Terrell + other issues with & without M. Smart.

@AdamZagoria thoughts on where Lyle ends up? He'd be crazy not to come to KU. Buckets galore.
