'Hoos Get Commitment from 2016 Point Guard

Tony Bennett's first commit for the Virginia basketball recruiting class of 2016 is a 6-3 point guard from New York.

"My lifelong dream is to play college basketball at the highest level- My family and I are proud to announce my commitment to UVA!!" Ty Jerome posted on Twitter Tuesday afternoon.

Jerome is rated as a four-star point guard by 247Sports.com. According to the recruiting site, Jerome received a scholarship offer from UVa in July, and chose the Cavaliers over offers from Columbia, Davidson, Fordham, and George Washington.

Jerome joins 2015 power forward Jarred Reuter as basketball recruits currently committed to the reigning ACC champs.
