"I spoke to Coach Altman a couple of times a week all season and built a personal relationship with him that meant a lot to me."
Oregon is a guard-oriented team that was 11th in the country in points this year at 81.8 per game. The Ducks should have four perimeter players rotating in three spots next year as Dominic Artis, Joseph Young and Damyean Dotson are expected to return.
On his official visit, the Huntington (W.Va.) Prep floor general was impressed with what Oregon offered on and off the court.
"I was blown away by their academic setup," Lyle said. "It is so organized."
With Lyle's pledge, No. 2 Myles Turner and No. 99 Josh Cunningham are the only undecided ESPN 100 prospects.
