Five-star shooting guard Tyus Battle made the first cut to his school list Monday morning, but he still has a long way to go before making a college decision.
Battle trimmed his list to 11 schools, including UK, Duke, Florida, Louisville, Miami, Michigan, Ohio State, Syracuse, UConn, Villanova and Virginia.
Scout.com considers Battle — a 6-foot-6 prospect — to be the No. 9 overall player in the class of 2016. He has visited UK twice in recent months, including a trip to Big Blue Madness in October. Coach John Calipari has been to his school multiple times since September.
