Trey Lyles (Indianapolis/Arsenal Tech), ESPN’s No. 7 junior and one of the elite power forwards in high school basketball, rescinded his commitment to Tom Crean’s Indiana Hoosiers program on Monday. Lyles originally made his commitment in September of 2010 prior to his freshman season of high school basketball.

Over the last three recruiting classes, eight players ranked in the top 25 overall have decommitted and C.J.
