Mark Lyons, a 6'1" combo guard who was a third-team All-Atlantic 10 pick last season, is leaving Xavier, ESPN.com reported on Monday.

On Tuesday, Jason Smith, Lyons' former prep school coach, told the Kansas City Star that the rising senior is planning on visiting three schools before choosing where he will play his final year of college basketball: Kansas, Kentucky and Arizona.

It says a lot about Lyons' potential that both of the teams that played in the 2012 NCAA Championship game are after him.

Lyons averaged 15.1 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists last season at Xavier.

If he finishes his degree this spring, he could enroll in a graduate program at his new school and be eligible immediately.

Here is a lightning-fast look at how he might fit into each of the three programs.
