Villa Park's Evan Battey commits to Colorado

Villa Park senior Evan Battey has committed to Colorado, Battey announced Tuesday.

Battey, 6-foot-7 and 235 pounds, cannot play for Villa Park this basketball season because he already has used all of his eight semesters of high school athletic eligibility.

Battey was All-Orange County first team last season when he averaged 24 points a game. He is extraordinarily quick and agile for his size, and is a fine outside shooter.

Battey repeated the ninth grade at Los Angeles Center for Enriched Studies – LACES, as the public school often is called. Although Battey did not play sports his first freshman year at LACES, those two semesters, according to CIF-Southern Section by-laws, still would count toward the eight semesters of athletic eligibility that belong to each high school student-athlete.

His third and fourth semesters were exausted at LACES during his second freshman year, and his fifth and six semesters were consumed by his sophomore year at LACES. Battey played basketball at LACES during his second freshman year and during his sophomore year.
