Hubbard High School (Chicago, IL) safety Nate Lyles will reschedule his previously set visit to Virginia once he speaks with Special Teams Coach Corwin Brown, who is his primary recruiter for the Cavaliers.
Lyles had been scheduled to take an official visit to Virginia on the weekend of November 29th.
“I was going to Virginia on November 29th, but I can’t go,” said the 6-1,195 pound Lyles. “I’m going to reschedule with them. Hopefully we can set something else up this week when I talk to Coach Brown.”
Lyles appears to be one of the Cavaliers top targets at the safety position. Virginia has indicated he could play early.
“Coach Brown calls me once a week and we talk about a lot of things,” said Lyles. “They are recruiting me as a safety, and he said I can come in and play my first year if I went there. Wherever I go, I want the opportunity to play. I want to see playing time somewhere between my freshman and sophomore years.”
Other than Virginia, Lyles is not sure where he will make his official visits. He has nine scholarship offers to choose from, including Notre Dame, Illinois, Iowa, Northwestern, and Michigan State among others. He wants to use all five visits before making a decision.
“I haven’t really thought about it much,” said Lyles of where he will visit. “To be honest, I’ve put recruiting on the backburner for now. I’m focusing on our season and I’ll worry about it after that. I think I’m going to take all of my visits in December and January. I think I will need all of them before I can decide.”
Lyles has made unofficial visits in the past to Notre Dame, Northwestern, Illinois, and Michigan. The Wolverines are recruiting him but have not offered.
Official visits will be the primary factor in Lyles’ final decision.
“My official visits will determine where I will go,” said Lyles. “I need to be comfortable with the campus. It’s going to be where I spend my next four years. I want to get a feel for the players and see how the defenses have developed and what they will be like.”
