Shooting Guard
Edison, NJ
Ht: 6-5 | Wt: 190
Class of 2016

Battle is a very versatile player he averaged 22.5 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game last season at Gill St. Bernard’s. Battle is the definition of humble and hungry and is notorious for being a hard worker. Battle has the skill to affect the game on both ends of the floor, a committed defender he is quick, athletic and eager. It’s easy to see the comparisons to Rasheed Sulaimon and his game, with his use of the jump-shot from 3 and mid-range his form actually reminds me a little of Rodney Hood, but that’s just my opinion.

Battle has offers from nearly every big name school in the nation including Kentucky, Louisville, Michigan, Indiana and now Duke.
