Three-star guard, Tres Berry announced a commitment to the Rams on his Instagram page Friday morning. The 6-foot-4 shooter also claimed offers from Tennessee, Auburn, West Virginia, St. Bonaventure, Toledo, Tulsa and more.
Abou Ousmane, Berry’s teammate at Scotland Campus, pledged to the Rams before backing off on his commitment last week. Ousmane, a 6-foot-9 forward, tweeted late Thursday night that he has committed to North Texas.
Berry ran with B. Maze Elite in his grassroots season. The organization’s founder is former Tennessee star Bobby Maze, a native of Washington, D.C. and a connection of Rams coach David Cox. Maze played his grassroots basketball for DC Blue Devils, the same organization that produced graduating URI guard Jeff Dowtin.
The Rams have been active with recruiting several guard targets while attempting to replace Jeff Dowtin and Tyrese Martin. URI is on the final list of five for Baltimore scorer Brandon Murray but, missed out on the last three for DePaul graduate transfer Devin Gage. The Rams have been in contact with Georgia Southern graduate transfer Quan Jackson. URI has also been in contact with Georgia Tech graduate transfer Evan Cole and has offered out to Brooklyn natives Josh Gray and Isaiah Richards.
The Rams are back up to six commitments for their Class of 2020, with Berry joining fellow freshman guards Ishmael Leggett and Elijah Wood. Transfers Malik Martin (Charlotte), Makhi Mitchell (Maryland) and Makhel Mitchell (Maryland) are also in the fold.
