Will Lyles Class Of 2011 Recruiting Package For Oregon Football Included 2011 Sophomores, Juniors

More documents related to Will Lyles "2011 National Package" purchased by the Oregon Ducks are slowly trickling out. The initial wave of documents, which Oregon paid $25,000 for, was met with disbelief and mocking tones -- the recruits named were almost all part of the class of 2009 and the information was severely dated. On Tuesday, another set of spreadsheets and profiles were released to media after a request for clarification from the media.

Lyles was not, apparently, providing the Ducks with information about the class of 2011. We know he gave Oregon outdated profiles for players in the class of 2009 and 2010, but the information released Tuesday was more current, and covered sophomores and juniors in the 2011 school year.

The newest information came in the form of spread sheets that listed high school sophomores in North and South Carolina, juniors in Louisiana and "east Texas" and sophomores in the east Texas area. Thus, none of the latest players listed could be considered as potential members of the 2011 recruiting class, the purported basis of a "2011 National Package" of recruits that Oregon paid $25,000 to Willie Lyles on March 30, 2010, and the list of underclassmen was delivered to the UO almost a year after the payment to Lyles.

Oregon added that the information released on Tuesday was withheld initially because of a mistake when responding to a public records request. Only after a request for clarification were more documents released.

While the information is valid and appears to be useful, one has to wonder why Lyles delivered it to Oregon a year after he was paid. Either coincidentally or not, the spreadsheets were delivered just before news of the Ducks' payments to Lyles and Baron Flenory broke. But, again, there was no rule preventing Oregon from paying for a recruiting service and the Ducks may have had Lyles on some kind of retainer.
