In \”I saw that coming\” news, five star 2016 shooting guard Tyus Battle has included Michigan in his eleven finalists.

Battle is ranked as the #11 overall player in the class, according to 247Sports, and is a top target for Beilien and company. He is an elite athlete that every top program in the country is going after. However, Michigan has a bit of a step up on several of his finalists thanks to his great camp visit to Ann Arbor this summer and his friendship with top point guard target Derryck Thornton.
The two elite prospects have mentioned that they would like to play together at the next level but nothing is set in stone. But if they really want the chance, Michigan is a perfect spot.
As far as top competitors in his recruitment, Kentucky, Louisville and especially Duke (rumored favorites) are the teams to watch.
