Tyus Battle commits to Syracuse
Five-star wing prospect Tyus Battle has committed to Syracuse, his father told Scout. "He wanted to play on the ball, and at 6-6, 200-pounds he can handle and make people better," Gary Battle said. "That’s what they are telling him." Battle originally committed to Michigan, but backed off that pledge in mid-June. He took an official visit to Syracuse on June 19th. He also considered Louisvile and others the second time around. "He’s always followed the team and it’s local," he added. "It’s only three hours. It was important to his mom for him to be close to home." A 6-foot-6 wing prospect, Battle ranks as the No. 20 overall prospect in the 2016 recruiting class. Battle came back at Nike's Basketball Academy after missing the entire spring with a foot injury. Syracuse now has a pair of commitments in their 2016 recruiting class. Battle joins four-star forward prospect Matthew Moyer to make up their current recruiting class.
