Former Xavier University guard Mark Lyons committed to play basketball at the University of Arizona on Sunday.
Lyons visited Arizona over the weekend after a visit to Kentucky last week. He had said earlier he also planned on visiting Kansas University. Lyons told the Arizona Daily Star he had a “great connection” with UA coaches that led to his commitment.
Lyons was recruited to Xavier by current UA coach Sean Miller. He will be immediately eligible at Arizona after earning his undergraduate degree in coming weeks. He has one final year of eligibility remaining.
