Battle, the two-star recruit from the talented Miami-Dade area is a little under the radar though because his high school, Belen Jesuit, runs a wing-T offense and does not pass very much. Battle had an offer from Syracuse, which was reportedly taken off the table, as well as Buffalo and Ohio. Battle is an outstanding student (4.2 GPA!) and when asked about Bob Diaco, Stuart called the staff "excellent" and "They are definitely going to turn things around there."
Fans should be very excited about Frank Battle because he has off the charts athletic ability at 6-foot-6. Like a good amount of other UConn recruits, he is a two-sport athlete (on the basketball team). He seems like a player you can throw the ball up to and he will go get it with his size. Once he puts on some more weight, he will certainly be a player to watch in a Husky uniform.
