Both Trout and Lisle are former four-star recruits according to 247Sports, and it looks like at least one of them has a destination already; Lisle is set to complete his graduate requirements, and he will be on his way to Duke to finish his career.


Trout, as a recruit of the 2014 class, has yet to graduate and will have to sit out a year if he transfers to a program at the FBS level.
