Five-star power forward Trey Lyles will choose either Kentucky or Louisville on Tuesday afternoon, putting an end to a recruitment that has come down to two bitter rivals.

Lyles — a 6-foot-8 prospect from Indianapolis — is scheduled to announce his college decision from his high school at 12:55 p.m. The announcement was first reported by the Indianapolis Star.

Scout.con ranks Lyles as the No. 8 overall prospect in the Class of 2014. National analyst Evan Daniels says he’s one of the best offensive post players in the country.

“What makes Trey so special is his offensive skill,” Daniels told the Herald-Leader. “He can really score the basketball. He can do it on the block, he can do it from shooting mid-range jump shots, he can even step out for threes. He has a great set of hands, great touch. He has counter moves, he has hook shots. He’s a guy that can really put the ball in the basket. He has a knack for putting up points — both with his back to the basket and facing the rim.”

Lyles took his official visit to Lexington for last month’s Big Blue Madness, his second trip to the event after also attending last year’s show. He came to UK for several regular-season games last season.

Louisville is the only other school on Lyles’ list. He took his official visit there in late August.

Lyles was committed to Indiana for nearly two years, but backed out of that pledge last summer.

UK has three commitments so far for the Class of 2014: New Jersey center Karl Towns Jr., Chicago point guard Tyler Ulis and Mississippi shooting guard Devin Booker.

  1. Who do you think he will commit to?

  2. UK – please please please!

  3. KENTUCKY

  4. I believe all the signs are pointing to UK on this one. If we bring back at leaat a couple guys from this year’s team like Marcus Lee, Dakari Johnson and potentially Alex Poythress we could be expetionally formidable. I thin Young is going to win the starter’s role at the 3 leaving Poythress with a limited amount of chances to reestablish himself as a lottery pick.

  5. My prediction is Kentucky.

    –Ben
