After Joe Bamisile decommitted in late July, Northwestern men’s basketball was actively searching for a potential replacement in the class of 2020.

Ty Berry, a three-star guard from Wichita, KS, is a player that Chris Collins and co. hope can fill that void. The 6-foot-2 guard, who officially announced his commitment to Northwestern on Wednesday night, had offers from Minnesota, Oklahoma State, and Iowa, along with interest from Kansas.

He is the second member of the 2020 recruiting class, joining recent commit Matt Nicholson. With just two players graduating out of the Wildcat program after the 2019-20 season, Berry looks to be the final piece for next year. The guard is ranked 13th in the country at his position and is the second-best overall recruit from Kansas according to the 247 composite rankings.

Berry’s game is fun to watch, with his strength, smoothness, and ability to consistently slice through to the rim adding an element to the Northwestern offense that they missed last season. The Kansas native’s ability to pick out quality passes while on the move makes him a challenge to defend.

The guard’s range, though, is not limited to inside and around the paint. His three-point shot is deadly and his highlights, which come from just about everywhere not he floor, are fun to watch.

Berry’s play style and game management are already quite impressive (though,of course, he hasn’t played against Big Ten-caliber competition just yet) and Wildcat fans should be excited for him to get to campus and join Boo Buie and a developing core in the backcourt.
