Video: Battle Won by Beilein

Sam Webb joins's Scott Kennedy to discuss the significance of Michigan's big pick-up of Gladstone (N.J.) Gill St. Bernard's SG Tyus Battle.

Experts' Take

Brian Snow: Tyus Battle is one of the elite wings in the entire country. He is a very good athlete who can really shoot it from deep, but he is more than just that. Battle does a good job of getting to the rim, and has a strong frame as well. Battle has continually gotten better throughout his high school career and has excelled in a high school setting, in AAU, and in USA Basketball proving that he can adjust to any style of play.

Evan Daniels: This is a massive pick up for John Beilein and the Wolverines. Beilein loves shooters with great size and that’s exactly what Tyus Battle is. He’s a perimeter marksman that stands 6-foot-6. Battle is also gaining confidence going off the dribble and to go with his size and impressive basketball frame, he’s also a quality athlete.
