Lyles Commits to Return Home to Wisconsin

Arizona Sports News online

What a day if you are a Wisconsin fan.

Just a little over an hour after four-star 2016 defensive tackle Garrett Rand announces his commitment to Wisconsin, they land a second commitment from four-star 2017 offensive lineman Kayden Lyles.

The 6-3, 300 pound two-way lineman for the two-time defending state champion Saguaro Sabercats has Badger blood that runs deep in his veins. His father Kevin was a tight end for a Wisconsin team that won a Rose Bowl in the 1990s. Kayden’s older brother Karé, who is a senior quarterback at Saguaro, committed to Wisconsin last March.

Both Kayden and Karé both grew up in Wisconsin and moved to Phoenix just before high school. They have made their mark on the AZ high school football scene and now have decided to head back to where it all began for their collegiate career.

Kayden Lyles is one of the top prospects Arizona has to offer in the 2017 class. Lyles had boatloads of offers and picked the Badgers over Arizona, Arizona State, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, UCLA and USC to name a handful. He had 17 reported offers overall.
