Will Lyles Of Complete Scouting Services Has Been Noted 'Street Agent' For Years

Will Lyles, one of the two men reported to have received money from the Oregon Ducks football program for what may have been recruiting access, has a reputation around college football’s corner of the internet. While message board posts aren’t any sort of proof of wrongdoing, it’s worthwhile to understand what we’re working with here.

Members of Orange Power, an Oklahoma St. Cowboys board, described Lyles as a “street agent” and voiced discomfort with landing one of his associates as a signee. That was in 2009. Also in 2009, Barking Carnival described Lyles as a street agent similar to Bryce Brown’s handler. There are many more, but you get the point.

The emergence of street agents in college football is a complicated issue. It’s a pejorative term, though there’s nothing specifically against NCAA rules about urging a player to attend a certain school. Certainly there are plenty of players out there who don’t have to worry about their non-family mentors taking money.

Of course, it doesn’t always end there, as money is often involved. Barking Carnival has written extensively about street agents, and not just on Lyles himself.
