Back on June 11th, Wyatt Battaile, a 6’4 180 lbs 2018 G from Pikeville High School (KY) committed to UofL.

Today, UofL made the official announcement that Wyatt Battaile had joined the program as a preferred walk on.

Battaile averaged 24.1 ppg, 8.6 rpg, and 4.3 apg for former UofL player Elisha Justice at Pikeville last year per Battaile is known for his shooting ability, especially from three-point range. He will be a preferred walk on, adding more and much-needed depth for Coach Mack.

If Battaile is anywhere the player his high school coach was, he can definitely be a nice contributor off the bench for the Cards. And as we all know very well walk ons are important (see: Tim Henderson).
