With the class of 2015 wrapped up for Rick Pitino, the weekly CSZ Recruiting Notebook is also on a break right now. We will return with it around the time that basketball season starts and get you introduced to some of the guys in the 2016 class.
One of the players surely to make the list will be Tyus Battle. He is a 6’6 shooting guard from Edison, New Jersey. He is a consensus 5-star player on the four major recruiting sites. Here is how he ranks on each site:
247 Sports: #11 overall, #3 SG
ESPN: #15 overall, #4 SG
According to Andrew Slater of 247 Sports, the Louisville Cardinals have offered a scholarship to 5-star shooting guard/small forward Tyus Battle. He is in the class of 2016 and is from Edison, New Jersey. He is listed at 6’5 and 190 lbs.
Battle visited UofL on Monday and obviously that visit went well. Since April 28, he has received offers from Louisville, Michigan, Florida, Wake Forest, and Maryland. He also holds offers from Syracuse, Indiana, UConn, Ohio State, Virginia, and many more. As of right now, Syracuse seems to be the leader.
According to Scout.com’s Evan Daniels 2016 5 star SG Tyus Battle (NJ) will visit Louisville on June 16.
The 6’5 Battle has a strong connection with assistant coach Kenny Johnson as Johnson was Battle’s lead recruiter at IU. It is still extremely early in Battle’s recruitment but getting a stud like Battle on campus this early and having a connection can’t be a bad thing. Follow Tyus Battle on twitter @KidMamba23
