And the faxes keep on coming. Trey Lyles, a power forward from Indianapolis (IN) Arsenal Tech, has faxed in his National Letter of Intent to the Kentucky Wildcats. The Indianapolis Star's Kyle Neddenriep was on-hand for the signing ceremony, taking this unintentionally funny backwards picture.

Lyles was the latest prospect in the 2014 class to commit, following Karl Towns, Tyler Ulis, and Devin Booker. Lyles committed to Kentucky a little over a week ago, choosing the Wildcats over their rival program, the Louisville Cardinals. Lyles had taken his official visit to Kentucky for Big Blue Madness in mid-October.
A college 4, Lyles has an open path to a starting role next year, as current power forward Julius Randle is just about as one-and-done as it gets. Lyles will face competition from freshman backup Derek Willis. Another freshman, Marcus Lee, could conceivably start at the 4 as well.
Welcome to Big Blue Nation, Trey!
