Hubbard High School (Chicago, IL) safety prospect Nate Lyles is nearing his decision, and hopes to have one made at least by early next week. The outstanding 6-1, 195 pound prospect has narrowed his list down to Notre Dame, Virginia, and Oregon.
“I could make my decision anytime,” Lyles said. “It might be this week, or at least by early next week.”
Lyles has now made official visits to all three finalists, including a trip this past weekend to Notre Dame. He enjoyed his time in South Bend, however indicated that the visit did not separate the Irish from the other two schools involved.
“It was pretty nice,” Lyles said of Notre Dame. “It wasn’t the first time I had been down there, so I knew my way around. This time, I had a chance to talk more to the coaches and to interract with the players. The hard thing was that this visit didn’t seem much different from Virginia or Oregon. My decision’s going to be really tough to make.”
Of his relationship with the players at each program, Lyles said “I got along with players from each school equally.”
He has a tremendous amount of respect for each of the three Head Coaches as well, however says “actually my feeling about the coaches involved will make my decision. They all offer something a little different. I really like all of the coaches, but I need to think a little more about it.”
In addition to which Head Coach he feels most comfortable with, Lyles will consider several other factors in making his decision. He plans on sitting down with his parents to come up with a choice.
“I’m going to sit down with my parents and discuss some things to make a decision,” Lyles said. “The things I’ll look at are the football program, the school, the coaching staff, and where I fit into all of it. Each school is a great school for Psychology, so it will be tough.”
Lyles will not have a press conference to announce his decision, indicating he will just inform the respective coaches. The Hubbard star, who is being recruited by all three schools to play safety, compared the three schools before he begins narrowing his list to just one school.
“Notre Dame is close to home,” Lyles said. “They have a great program and a great coaching staff.
“Virginia is a great school first of all. They have a great coaching staff. They have a good location on the East Coast.
