Five Star Recruit Trey Lyles commits to Kentucky over Louisville


John Calipari is chasing Rick Pitino again for the keys to the state of Kentucky, and Cal may have hauled in his biggest prize in this year’s recruiting battle by beating out Pitino and Louisville for star prep forward Trey Lyles. 

“Next year, I will be playing for the University of Kentucky,” Lyles said.

The 6-foot-9 power forward becomes the fourth commitment in the class for Calipari, joining Karl Towns, Tyler Ulis and Devin Booker.

Lyles is a highly skilled big man that resembles Carlos Boozer in his ability to be strong, and fluid with range from anywhere on the floor.
