It has reached the point now where almost every week brings a new suitor for Chris Lykes, a new believer in the player who, just a year ago, was overlooked by some of those same colleges due, almost entirely, to his height.

On April 17, Virginia extended an offer to the Gonzaga junior guard after he dropped 21 points and snagged four steals during Team Takeover’s win against Boo Williams on the EYBL circuit. This past Sunday, N.C. State became the 11th school to offer the 5-foot-8 electrifying player. While his recruitment remains open, Lykes recently told Scout that his top five schools are Georgetown, Miami, Notre Dame, Miami, VCU and Villanova.
