Tyus Battle Enjoys Syracuse; Kentucky, Duke Up Next
Tyus Battle enjoyed his weekend visit to Syracuse and will now take back-to-back trips to Kentucky and Duke across the next two weekends.
“It’s a really nice campus with people who have a lot of passion for the University,” Gary Battle, the player’s father, told SNY.tv. “Ty likes coach B, Hop and Gerry Mac [Jim Boeheim, Mike Hopkins and Gerry McNamara].
“We toured the entire campus and went to the [Florida State] football game. It was a great visit.”
Battle previously visited Syracuse last season during the epic Duke basketball game.
The 6-foot-6 2016 Gill St. Bernard’s guard will now head to Kentucky Friday for Big Blue Madness before hitting Duke’s Midnight Madness the following weekend.
Louisville coach Rick Pitino is due into Gill for a second visit on Wednesday.
Battle told SNY.tv he plans to cut his list before the start of the high school season in December.
