Lyle, who played two seasons with the Buckeyes and would’ve been one of their top returning scorers next season, is no longer listed on Ohio State’s official roster. He averaged 11.4 points and 4.6 assists in 31 games (23 starts) during the 2016-17 campaign.
Lyle got into legal trouble early Saturday. He was taken into custody in his hometown of Evansville, Ind., and charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief, according to a police report. Lyle posted the $150 bail.
The Lantern, Ohio State’s student newspaper, obtained a police report that said Lyle was cited after punching a police car.
