Eastern Kentucky Guard Will Join Louisville Hoops Program

Chris Mack appears to have added a player for his debut season with the Louisville program.

Wyatt Battaile, a 6-foot-5, guard from Pikeville, Kentucky, recently tweeted that he’s flipped his commitment from Morehead State to Louisville.

“After talking with my family, I have decided to de-commit from Morehead State. I would like to thank Coach Spradlin and their staff for the opportunity. With that being said I am happy to announce that I will be furthering my academic and athletic career at the University of Louisville. #GoCards”

It’s unclear if Wyatt will join the program on scholarship or as a preferred walk-on.

The Eastern Kentucky native didn’t appear to have a long offer list, despite putting together a sensational high school career.

Wyatt averaged  24.1 points and 8.6 rebounds per game as a senior. He earned 15th Region Player of the Year for former Louisville guard Elisha Justice at Pikeville High School as they advanced to the quarterfinals of the Sweet 16. Wyatt scored 2,211 points in his career.
