per RandBall:

The Gophers men's basketball roster is going to feature a lot of new faces next season, with several players departing to the transfer portal after Richard Pitino's dismissal and several others joining the team via the portal after new coach Ben Johnson was hired.

One face on the team that should be both new and familiar to local basketball fans: Jamison Battle.

After a breakout sophomore season at George Washington during which he averaged 17 points and five rebounds, Battle — who wasn't recruited by the Gophers out of high school — announced recently he is transferring back home to play for Minnesota. He will be eligible immediately and should help Johnson's Gophers team both on the court and off.

Battle, a 6-7, 225 pound forward, was a guest on Friday's Daily Delivery podcast. Gophers men's basketball beat writer Marcus Fuller and I asked him several questions on a wide variety of subjects.

Go Gophers!!
