UNC is Trey Lyles’ “Dream School”

When Trey Lyles decommitted from Indiana earlier this month, Jeff Goodman said Kentucky had been “poking around” with Lyles before he reopened his recruitment. That would suggest UK was a big factor in steering Lyles away from his commitment, correct?

Well, today, his father told that North Carolina is his son’s “dream school.”

“When he started playing basketball that was his dream school,” Tom Lyles said. “You know how everybody has one school that they grew up saying, ‘That’s the school I want to go to and that’s where I want to play.’ That was his dream school.”

I’m sure wanting to play for his “dream school” had a lot more to do with his decommitment than Kentucky’s alleged “poking around.”

    I’m sure his dream is to play for a “school”. Dude probably grew up wanting to be Michael Jordan, not playing for a school.

    If UNC is his favorite school then why did WWW pay him $250,000 to decommit from IU?

    @ 2. Exactly. Shouldn’t he be aware of what is happening there? Oh wait a minute, nothing is happening yet. The way i see it, whoever is recruiting him must be acting as if everything is going to be fine. Which i suppose, it probably will.

    ***So that he could go play for UNC, you idiot. However, I will never believe that anyone has to pay a recruit from dropping IU.

    Goodman knew good and well UNC and Duke were the schools tampering with Lyles. He will stop at nothing and even lie to hurt UK and help UNC.

    Of course it is…….because you get to play basketball and don’t have to go to class. The school will forge documents to keep you eligible……that is everyone’s dream scenario.

    hahaha! UK and coach Cal taking crap for all the one and done players… At UNC we don’t do one and done. It’s come and get a degree, play sports, all while never going to class and the media will love you!

    All this talk about “Dream School”, de-commitment to where.
    Its all fluff, wasted speak; When the dust settles and he commits to (insert the name) reality is established.
    “UNCheat” what an original name. How was your first day in sixth grade. Did mommy wash your jeans to make them soft?
    Did Suzy throw a rock at you.
    Athletes are no different at UNC than they are at UK, duke, NCSU, USC, VT, Alabama. UNC doesn’t take just the “weakest” ones. Each school has programs to keep their lowest academically athletes “up to speed” Look at the Vick brothers at VT.
    So get your heads out of the sand and understand everyone of your schools do something for these “struggling” students.
