Kansas assistant Jerrance Howard will contact JaQuan Lyle Thursday at Huntington Prep, sources told SNY.tv.
It’s possible the 6-foot-5 Lyle could visit Kansas sometime over the Christmas break.
Now that Kansas is out of the Tyus Jones Sweepstakes, they are re-focusing on Lyle, who is expected to sign in the spring. Kansas feels it needs a big-body combo guard to complete its recruiting class, giving them a potential top-five class to go along with Findlay Prep wing Kelly Oubre and Chicago Curie power forward Cliff Alexander.
