Lyle was a top recruit entering his career at Ohio State. The guard averaged 11.4 points, 4.6 assists and 3.2 rebounds per game as a sophomore last season. He also improved his field goal percentage from 39.7 percent as a freshman to 45.8 percent.
Lyle left the Buckeyes following an arrest in May. He should be a difference-maker for the Lobos.
