Two months after committing to Michigan, Tyus Battle has committed to Syracuse.
“I wanted to be closer to home,” Battle told ESPN. “They told me I could be a versatile guard who could have the ball in my hands a lot.”
Battle took an official visit to Syracuse in June, the same weekend that he decommitted from Michigan.
Michigan remains focused on landing a point guard in the class of 2016 with Cassius Winston as the top prospect on the recruiting board. Michigan also has an outstanding scholarship offer to point guard Quentin Goodin.
The Wolverines are evaluating a number of other wing targets in the class including Kevin Huerter, Miles Bridges, Bruce Brown, Ibi Watson and Karmari Newman. Michigan has yet to extend a scholarship to a new wing target in the class.
