Willie Lyles On Influencing Recruits: 'I don't have that power.'

If you listen to his interview with Bomani Jones taken from this morning's edition of The Morning Jones, Willie Lyles does a good job explaining his role as a middle man and adviser working in the gray area between recruit and school, and how his work with Oregon did not include the power to turn recruits, since as he explains "I don't have that power." He may deny superpowers, but he may have the ability to move objects from thousands of miles away if the powers that be at Oregon and/or the NCAA decide working in a gray area is too much for the program to tolerate.. (The object = Chip Kelly, movement = out of coach's chair at Oregon.)

Meanwhile, a very interested party does indeed want to do their own interview with Mr. Lyles about his work with Oregon.
