With Ohio State’s spring semester over, JaQuan Lyle was home in Evansville, Indiana, when his weekend took a turn for the worse. Early Friday morning, the 21-year-old was arrested and charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief to a vehicle.

But it turns out that it was not a problem for the men’s basketball program. Although Lyle confirmed to The Dispatch on May 1 that he was “100 percent committed” to returning for his upcoming junior season, a team spokesman said Saturday that Lyle had quit the team on April 11.

According to a police report, Lyle was at a bar in his hometown when he was asked to leave for being intoxicated. As he exited, he punched the door, went outside and yelled at a woman before walking to the nearby police cruiser and punching the hood.

The charges are misdemeanors. He was released on a bond of $150.

Lyle has been giving mixed signals since the season ended. In addition to his comments to The Dispatch, he went through personal workouts at a local gym and frequently posted photos of himself wearing Ohio State gear, often while playing basketball.

In his biography on his Twitter page, Lyle still listed himself Saturday as being from “The Ohio State University.” On May 10, he posted a photo of himself in his Buckeyes uniform with the caption, “Life is full of blessings. I thank god for them everyday.” One day earlier, he posted a photo of Ohio State guard C.J. Jackson for his birthday, calling him his brother.

But on April 11, Lyle posted a photo of himself playing against Purdue to Instagram with the caption, “I know that one day they love you for your own reasons and the next day they hate you for a decision you made that only affects you.”

Sources close to Lyle stopped returning phone calls and messages once Ohio State’s season ended.

Lyle was the final remaining member of a five-player recruiting class that was ranked among the top 10 nationally. The other four left by the end of their freshman seasons: Austin Grandstaff quit after 10 games, and A.J. Harris, Mickey Mitchell and Daniel Giddens transferred after the season.

Lyle also is the third player to leave the program this offseason, following redshirt junior Trevor Thompson and backup center David Bell. Thompson declared for the NBA draft and signed with an agent, and Bell transferred to Jacksonville to be close to his pregnant girlfriend.

Kam Williams, who would be a fifth-year senior, also declared for the draft but his status for next season remains uncertain.

Ohio State has had no media availability since the season ended March 8 with a 66-57 loss to Rutgers in the opening round of the Big Ten tournament. The Buckeyes finished 17-15 in coach Thad Matta's 13th season.

Williams and Thompson are still listed on Ohio State’s roster for next season, but Lyle’s biography has been removed. Without Williams, the Buckeyes would have six returning recruited players with two incoming freshman. That leaves five unused scholarships as the Buckeyes continue to chase a handful of recruits, primarily at the graduate-transfer level.

Lyle was a highly rated recruit but struggled to find consistency. As a sophomore, he finished third on the team by averaging 11.4 points per game and shot a team-best 40.7 percent from three-point range. He missed three games in the middle of the season because of an ankle injury and to be with his sister, who had life-threatening complications from childbirth but made a full recovery.

Upon his return to the team, Lyle came off the bench in relief of Jackson.
