Lawrence Central (Indianapolis) point guard Kyle Guy ended his recruitment Monday picking Virginia over Butler, Indiana, Missouri, Purdue, Xavier, North Carolina State and Iowa State, among many others.
Guy, a four-star junior, visited Virginia this past weekend and tweeted out his pledge Monday afternoon.
“It shocked myself, really, how much I liked everything about Virginia,” said the 6-2 Guy, who is ranked No. 60 nationally in the 2016 class by Rivals. “The coaching staff, the campus, the style and just everything about it. I waited a day because I wanted to make sure, but I felt the same way when I got back.”
The 6-foot-2 sharpshooter led Indiana Elite to the uber-prestigious adidas Super64 title this past summer without losing a game. There he shot 16 of 31 from the arc and 30 of 62 from the field in the tournament.
The distance from home was not a factor for Guy, who averaged 13.6 points as a sophomore.
“The ACC has expanded with Notre Dame and Louisville not that far away,” he said. “My grandparents are retired and can get to all the games. My parents told me to pick a school where I wanted to go and not worry about how far away it was.”
Guy joins Iona Prep (New Rochelle, N.Y.) guard Ty Jerome to form the Cavaliers 2016 class thus far.
