Tim Perry Jr., the son of former Temple standout Tim Perry, verbally committed to Drexel yesterday and will join their 2017 recruiting class.
The 6-foot-10, 220 pound forward, who graduated from Cherry Hill East last June, currently attends The Phelps School in Malvern, PA and is averaging 10 points, 10 rebounds and 2 blocks per game, according to his coach, Brian Shanahan, who spoke with Dick Jerardi of Philly.com.
Perry also had interest from Temple and La Salle but only received a scholarship offer from the Dragons. He joins Jarvis Noles in Drexel’s incoming recruiting class, who also decided to go the prep school route, attending Mt. Zion Prep (MD).
City of Basketball Love was the first to report of Perry’s commitment.
