Tyus Battle is going to Syracuse

Once a target on John Calipari’s radar, five-star shooting guard Tyus Battle is now going to Syracuse. The one-time Michigan commit pledged his allegiance to the Orange today, just two months after his original commitment to the Wolverines.

Battle visited Kentucky for Big Blue Madness last season. He received his offer from UK last summer during an unofficial visit, but things fell apart between the two sides as time moved along and the Cats were out of the picture at the time of today’s commitment.

Good luck, kid.

    Syracuse still has a team? The more you know! Good luck to him.

    Not much impact for us here. Sort of feels like when an ex-girlfriend finds another guy after the one after you. The first one stings a bit, but by the 2nd or 3rd, who cares?

    Does Syracuse even get to play post season basketball?

      No, they do not as of right now, though they have filed an appeal. From what I just read, the bigger question is: Does Syracuse have a scholarship available for Battle? Along with the post-season ban, they are also on reduced scholarships.
