Dave Telep of Scout.com is reporting that Jesse Berry has committed to the University of Dayton. I’ve written a little bit about Jesse in the past. A combo guard from Indiana, Jesse plays alongside Dominique Ferguson on the AAU squad SYF Players. He was receiving some interest from the UK staff, even to the point that at one stage he believed that there may be an offer on the table. That offer was never confirmed and the question is pretty much moot at this point, as Jesse is now a Flyer. He also held offers from Ball State, Butler, New Mexico and Cincinnati and was getting interest from Arizona and Purdue.
Jesse is a pretty good outside shooter and, when that outside shot is on, he can really score a ton. His interest with UK was never really fully discovered and the interest from UK’s staff is probably best described with the same unknown label. The class of 2010 has plenty of guards and Jesse may have found himself behind most of them on UK’s wish list. Whatever the situation was, I’ll enjoy watching some Dayton games now and seeing how Jesse pans out on the collegiate level. Good luck young man!
