Syracuse recruiting links: Arizona joins Tyus Battle sweepstakes, Boeheim to visit Friday

Battle committed to Syracuse

Arizona was the latest high-profile school to pitch Tyus Battle when assistant coach Book Richardson passed through the Gladstone (N.J.) Gill St. Bernard’s school on Friday. “Book did an outstanding job painting a clear picture of where Tyus would fit in at Arizona,” Gary Battle, Tyus’s father, told “They like that he’s a big combo guard.” Coach K and assistant Jon Scheyer are due Wednesday, and Boeheim and Mike Hopkins are expected Friday.
