Class of 2016 wing guard Tyus Battle announced his top eleven schools this morning and Michigan made the cut.

The Wolverines made Battle’s top 11 along with UConn, Duke, Florida, Kentucky, Louisville, Miami, Ohio State, Syracuse, Villanova and Virginia.

Battle is the No. 11 prospect in the class of 2016 according to 247 Sports Composite rankings.

Battle visited Michigan in June for the Wolverines’ College Practice Camp and received a scholarship offer along with his friend, five-star point guard Derryck Thornton Jr. Thornton and Battle discussed the possibility of attending college together and Michigan is one of five schools that both players have on their lists, including Duke, Kentucky, Louisville and Miami.

The Wolverines currently have one commitment in the class of 2016, from Ohio big man Jon Teske, and Battle holds one of eight scholarships outstanding in the class.

    It would be nice to see these guys both come to Michigan. They both I believe they said Michigan was both their top schools so we’ll have to see where this goes?
