Michigan Official Set For Tyus Battle

2016 Gill (N.J.) St. Bernard’s five-star wing Tyus Battle is set to visit Michigan and a few other schools very soon.


Michigan has already played host to 2016 Gill (N.J.) St. Bernard’s five-star combo guard Tyus Battle at its elite camp nearly a year ago.

Holding an offer from the Wolverines, the 6-foot-6, 195-pound Battle is set to check out Ann Arbor one more time in the coming weeks.

According to his father, Battle will be on campus for an official visit the weekend of May 8.

Michigan is coming off of a disappointing .500 season, finishing the year 16-16 while battling several key injuries and limping home without a berth in a postseason tournament.

Despite all of that, Battle’s father previously said their attention isn’t solely focused on results from this season, impressed with the way Michigan kept itself together.

“They’ve had some unfortunate circumstances with a lot of their key guys being hurt and a lot of guys that are playing a lot of minutes that are forced to do it,” Battle said. “Michigan has built up enough equity in the basketball world with the Final Four and final eight last year, so clearly they can coach and they know what they’re doing.

“They’ve put four or five guys in the NBA the last couple seasons. It’s really allowed us to see how they work in adverse situations. I don’t think a lot of coaching staffs in the country could do what they’re doing with this roster right now.”

In addition to his official visit to Michigan in May, Battle will trip to Duke April 17 and Louisville April 19, also adding Kentucky to his list.
