Chris Lykes commits to Miami Hurricanes

Chris Lykes committed to Jim Larranaga and Miami Sunday, choosing the Hurricanes over Villanova. 

Reggie Rankin, of ESPN’s Recruiting Nation, said Chris Lykes is “one of the fastest rising prospects in the class of 2017,” and as an alum of the Hoop Group, we couldn’t agree more.

Lykes is a 5-foot-6 point guard for Gonzaga College High School, hailing from Bowie, Md. Starting out unranked in his 2017 class, has shot up to No. 46 spot.

Larranaga made his selling point pretty clear from the start. On top of a successful resume working with small guards, Lykes was sold on the immediate opportunity to contribute for the Canes in the competitive ACC.

“He is a leader and has the basketball IQ of a coach. Lykes has three point range and can get into the lane at will where he is an excellent finisher and finder,” Rankin said about the future Cane.

The four-star recruit will join D.J. Russell, a three-star forward out of Jacksonville, Fla., that has been committed to Miami for four years.
