Wow, just simply wow. I don't know where this world wind of distrust came from. His father has decidedly become the grim reaper for us Cards. Lyles would be and absolute monster in our system as long as he knows his roll. His roll would be stretch 4 all the way and for a kid of his dimensions and skill set that is 100% a compliment. Trey could thrive in our system without a doubt and become a focal point of the offense. Any coach that is trying to sell his father on the pretense he is a "point 4" is lying through his teeth. Unfortunately I would not put it past Cal to lie just so he can land a guy.
100% Trey would be more of a go to guy for us then he would ever be at Lexington Basketball Academy. But that wont stop Cal from lying to him. Not a chance in hell would he ever be the "go to guy" for sUK. Trey would be a beast in our system, but I am furious/pissed/petrified that Cal will promise him; "1 and done" even though it's a lie. These ill-informed kids are sold on the celebrity status of big blue madness every year, which is inexplicably not a recruiting violation.
Soooo if Rick/Louisville were to bring in Jay Z, Kanye, Little Wayne, etc for our major recruit/expo night it's legal? The NCAA is a god damn fool for allowing this nonsense to continue. UK relies on the most questionable/soon to be illegal, methods to land prospects. It's a house of cards and soon the cheaters will be exposed.

Rick often wins recruiting battles with mom's/grandma'/aunt's. When it's dad's/uncle's it seems he doesn't.
Sounds like this dad might want to run the show, and not ready to trust a Hall of Fame coach.
However, you never know what can happen after they meet I suppose.
Some of these comments coming from Lyles camp just rub me the wrong way. If he does go to UK he better hope that all their frontcourt players declare for the draft because that situation could be crowded.
The whale gets harpooned only when it comes to the surface...
