Tyus Battle Sets Duke, Louisville Visits, Adds Kentucky Back on List
Tyus Battle has set two visits and added a major school back on his list, according to Evan Daniels.
The 6-foot-6, five-star combo guard out of Gladstone (N.J.) Gill St. Bernard’s will visit Duke April 17-19 and Louisville April 19-21 and has put Kentucky back on his list.
“We’re definitely going to take a visit to both schools, it’s a matter of when,” Gary Battle recently told SNY.tv by.
“Duke’s been trying to get us up for an official visit for about a month, we just haven’t had the chance to do it. We wanted to initially go to the Notre Dame game, and then we just couldn’t find a time to do it.
“We want to do an official visit because we’ve taken a lot of unofficial visits.”
Battle added Kentucky after initially cutting the Wildcats when he trimmed his list to Louisville, UConn, Michigan, Syracuse, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Duke.
Battle has already visited Kentucky in addition to several other schools.
