Chicago (Ill.) Hubbard defensive back Nate Lyles must feel right at home in Boston this weekend. After all, the big city got more than 20 inches of snow.
"It's what I'm used to being from Chicago," said the 6-foot-0, 195-pounder. "I'm actually snowed in here so I can't leave until Monday morning. The flights have all been messed up."
So how is his first official visit going?
"It's going great, I really like it here," he said. "I'm being hosted by Josh Ott and I get along well with the players and coaches. I met with head coach Tom O'Brien and Don Horton, my recruiting coach."
Lyles said he is very impressed with what BC can offer.
"The academics are second to none and I met with the academic advisors and the people in the Psychology department. That's what I want to major in and they have a great program."
However, Lyles is not about to commit to anyone this early.
"I still want to take my other four trips," he said. "I have Virginia this upcoming weekend (Dec. 12), Iowa on Dec. 19 and Notre Dame on Jan. 16. My last visit is up in the air."
Lyles said he wants the following in a school...
"Good academics, good atmosphere and the chance to compete early," he said. "It has to be the whole package."
