Class of 2014 power forward Trey Lyles revealed on Instagram Thursday that he has cut his list to four teams, and the list includes UK.

Duke and UCLA fell victim to the recent cut that left the Cats, Florida, Butler and Louisville on Lyles’ remaining list.

Lyles committed to Indiana in his freshmen year of high school before re-opening his recruitment last summer.

ESPN has the 6-foot-9, 210-pound power forward ranked 5th among all prospects in the Class of 2014 while Scout and Rivals have him rated as the 4th-best player in the class.

The Arsenal Technical (Ind.) High School rising senior has made a handful of visits to Lexington, including trips to Big Blue Madness and two games during the 2012-2013 season.

Lyles played with the Canadian under-19 team at the world championships in Europe last week, and has also played on Spiece, an AAU squad. Spiece is playing in the Nike Peach Jam this week in North Augusta, S.C.
