After bursting on the scene as a freshman at Newton (Kan.) High School, 2020 wing player Ty Berry continues to take his game to another level this offseason.  A 6’3 guard with a unique skill set, Berry is among the Midwest’s premier players in the rising sophomore class. 

He has a smooth game, can handle the ball, shoot from the outside and attack the basket.  “I’m an all-around player and I just do what I need to do to win,” Berry said.

After averaging nearly 22 points per game as a high school freshmen, Berry put together a big summer with KC Run GMC 15U squad. He is drawing interest from numerous high major Division I programs and drew his first offer from Kansas State in late April after a strong performance in New York. He has since added offers from Nebraska and Creighton.

Berry has high expectations for his high school team this season as the Railroaders gear up for the start of practice in a few months. A year ago the team finished 11-13 but featured a host of youngsters and finished the season strong, winning six of its last eight games before falling to Salina Central in the state playoffs.  “This past high school season we had a rough start but ended up strong with a good finish on the backside of the schedule,” Berry said. “I grew a lot, both defensively and offensively.”

A fan of Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors, Berry says he appreciates his all-around game.  “I love what he does and he is a good role model,” Berry says. “I like watching what he does and try to take what he does and implement it into my own game.”

In addition to holding three offers, Berry has drawn interest from Kansas, Oklahoma, Wake Forest and Wichita State, among others.
