Kansas to Start Recruiting Tyus Battle; Ohio State, Virginia Due in Next Week

BattleAdd Kansas to the list of high-major programs who will be recruiting 2016 Gill St. Bernard’s guard Tyus Battle.

Kansas assistant Norm Roberts called Gary Battle, the player’s father, and told him he would be watching Tyus later this month and this summer.

“He told me he’s gonna be really looking forward to seeing him over the summer,” Gary said.

Battle is running this summer with Team Scan on the Nike EYBL circuit, alongside 2015 forwards Cheick Diallo and Thomas Bryant.

Ohio State and Virginia are also expected in to see the 6-foot-5, 190-pound Battle next week at his school during the recruiting period.

Gary previously said seven schools were recruiting his son the hardest:  Ohio State, UConn, Virginia, Villanova, Michigan, Syracuse and Indiana.

UConn head coach Kevin Ollie met with Battle on Friday, while assistants from Syracuse, Seton Hall and Michigan all came to his workout.
