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.
