Willie Lyles, Josh Luchs Speak Before NCAA Meeting

You couldn't write a script like this if you tried. Willie Lyles, the man at the center of an investigation into the recruiting practices of the Oregon Ducks and others, and Josh Luchs, the man at the center of Sports Illustrated's Confessions of an Agent, got together before Lyles' Tuesday meeting with NCAA investigators. Lyles, apparently, sought out Luchs in an effort to pick his brain and prepare for his NCAA date.

What followed was a series of tweets from Luchs, trumpeting his involvement with Lyles while hyping up the information he heard.

Spent yesterday helping prep @willieLyles 4 his NCAA tstmny 2day. Some big time schools/coaches have some major explainin 2 do.

Think what u want of @willielyles but he has very solid documentation & now the NCAA has it all! Took guts 4 him 2 tell complete truth.

2 b clear. My involvement w/ Lyles is limited 2 directing him 2 good lawyers & encouraging him 2 tell entire truth . He was big help 2 NCAA

It sure sounds like Luchs is serving as a hype-man for Lyles.

At this point, what Lyles told the NCAA and what documented proof he has is anyone's guess. Between the Yahoo! investigation and disclosures from the schools involved, it would appear we've already seen quite a bit of his story. But from Luchs' tweets, one has to wonder if Lyles has even more up his sleeve or where this investigation is going next.
