2016 5 Star SG to visit Louisville

According to’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
