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.”
Canadian point guard Jamal Murray is planning several college visits in the coming weeks but still has no timeframe on a decision about reclassifying to 2015 from 2016, his father told SNY.tv by phone on Monday. As has been the case throughout this recruitment, Roger Murray is keeping information very close to the vest and won’t reveal when or where his son, a 6-foot-5 point guard out of Orangeville Prep (Ontario), will take visits.
Along with fellow 2017 guards Quade Green and Trevon Duval – both of whom join Pugh in the starting lineup and have a litany of high-major offers – he represents both the present and the future of the prestigious WeR1 program. Big men Sedee Keita and Nysier Brooks round out the WeR1 starting five, a group that has obviously been instrumental in the team’s hot start.
Former Syracuse running back Prince-Tyson Gulley confirmed via test message that he will attend rookie mini-camp this weekend with the Buffalo Bills, joining safety Darius Kelly with Rex Ryan’s new club. Gulley’s presence with the Bills makes nine Syracuse players that will get at least a look from an NFL franchise either in mini-camps or training camps.
