The 6-foot-7 sophomore averaged over 17 points and five rebounds a game this year for the Colonials, their second-leading scorer. As a freshman, Battle started in 30 of 32 games. He led the conference in made 3-pointers (89), 3-point attempts (243) and shot 37% from three. He was named to the A-10 All-Rookie Team.

In what is expected to be a deep transfer portal throughout college basketball the next few months, Battle is one of the best players available.
