Lyles noted that his recruitment isn’t just limited to these 10 schools, and that the list could change if bigger offers roll in. Other major schools in Lyles’ top 10 include Utah and Indiana.
Lyles is rated as a 3-star prospect by 247Sports. According to their rankings, he’s the No. 143 wide receiver in the Class of 2019, the No. 145 player in the state of Texas and the No. 1120 player overall. A 6-foot-2, 201-pound receiver, Lyles recorded 533 receiving yards and seven touchdowns as a junior.
Kansas was the first FBS school to offer Lyles a scholarship, doing so on Feb. 26. Texas Tech joined the fray with an offer in May, and Lyles picked up offers from New Mexico and New Mexico State over the past week. 247Sports’ Crystal Ball predictions have him as a likely Texas Tech commit.
If so, Lyles would be the second wide receiver in Texas Tech’s 2019 recruiting class, joining 3-star Cameron Cantrell. He would be Kansas’ first wide receiver commit in its 2019 class.
