Niles West’s Jarryd Loyd Commits To Valparaiso


Chicago Hoops
September 5, 2003


Niles West’s Jarryd Loyd has given an oral commitment to play next year for Homer Drew and the Valparaiso Vikings. Loyd currently ranks among the Top 20 Class of 2004 prospects in the state of Illinois.

Loyd, a 5-10 point guard, averaged better than 15 points per game last season for Niles West. The super-quick Loyd is a stellar ball-handler and passer. He teams with shooting guard Sead Odzic to form one of the top backcourt duo’s in the state of Illinois.

Loyd received heavy interest from a number of area Division I programs including Loyola. He will join a Valparaiso team that already has a 2004 verbal from 7-3 center Kenny George of Chicago Latin. Last year, Valparaiso landed Jimmie Miles of Rich Central. Miles ranked among the Top 5 Class of 2003 prospects in the state of Illinois.

Loyd spent this past summer running the point for the Illinois Wolves. Earlier this week, Wolves teammate Frank Clair gave a verbal to Northern Illinois.
