    Tyus Battle

    Tyus Battle, one of the top recruits in the Class of 2016 out of Gladstone (N.J.) Gill St. Bernard’s, is set to take official visits to Michigan and Syracuse this month.

    The 6-foot-6 Battle will trip to Michigan this Thursday-Saturday and will then visit Syracuse May 22-24, Gary Battle told SNY.tv.

    “I’d like to see him get this over with by June,” Gary Battle previously told told Syracuse.com. “Tyus is undecided on that.”

    Battle recently had back-to-back official visits to Duke and Louisville, where he had dinner at home with both Mike Krzyzewski and Rick Pitino. Battle also had a recent in-home visit with Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim and assistant coach Mike Hopkins.

    Battle is also considering Kentucky, UConn, Notre Dame and Ohio State.

    He will then choose from among Kentucky, UConn or Ohio State for his final official.
