Trent Johnson added a second commit to TCU basketball's 2015 recruiting class over the weekend when he pulled in point guard Lyrik Shreiner from Phoenix, Arizona.

Lyrik stands at 6-foot-4, 190 pounds, and is a 3-star recruit, according to 247, Rivals, and ESPN.

According to Rivals, Shreiner also held offers from Cincinnati, Louisville, Oregon, Washington, Washington State, and UTEP.  Lyrik actually graduated from Westwind Prep Academy in 2014, but attended Fishburne Military School this past year in lieu of joining the Division 1 ranks.

Here's more on Shreiner from an Arizona Preps article dated September 8, 2014, after his decision to go to Fishburne.

Shreiner had many offensive and defensive outbursts last season, but none was more impactful than his scoring explosion where he exploded for 65 points – breaking the Arizona high school state scoring record on 26 for 27 shooting from the field in the game.  Shreiner also recorded a team-high 24 points in a narrow road loss to top-ranked Findlay Prep (NV) – a game in which he also held top-rated nationally ranked Kelly Oubre (Kansas signee) to 7 points.  As a result, Shreiner saw his college recruitment soar.

Shreiner reeled in offers from Louisville, Baylor, UCONN, Missouri, Memphis, Washington, Washington State, Cincinnatti (sic), Oregon, UTEP and San Diego.

Shreiner had considered Cincinnatti, Washington State, and even a late push from the University of Oregon, but in the end Shreiner chose to attend a year of post-grad at Fishburne Military Academy in Virginia, one of the top post-graduate basketball programs in the country.

Shreiner is a massive get for Trent Johnson's program, as he'll be key in helping replace senior point guard Kyan Anderson.

Shreiner joins 6-foot-7 forward Jalon Miller in the 2015 class. Miller, who held offers from Oklahoma and West Virginia, has already signed his letter of intent.
