Oregon assistant Tony Stubblefield and West Virginia assistant Larry Harrison were among those who watched Huntington (W.V.) Prep combo guard JaQuan Lyle Saturday night in Hazard, Ky.
The one-time Louisville commit scored 15 points as Huntington Prep beat St. Louis Christian (Mo.), 64-43.
Kentucky assistant Orlando Antigua was also on hand for 2015 wing Montaque “Teki” Gill-Caesar, who scored 13 points. Gill-Caesar may opt to reclass to 2014 from 2015, similar to what fellow Canadian Andrew Wiggins did.
Kansas assistant Jerrance Howard will also watch the 6-5 Lyle play today against Ezell Harding (Tenn.) at Frankfort High School.
Now that Kansas is out of the Tyus Jones Sweepstakes, they are re-focusing on Lyle, who is expected to sign in the spring.
Lyle and Kansas signee Cliff Alexander talked about a possible package deal, and it appears that could still happen with the Jayhawks.
