    Class of 2022 four-star forward Tyrell Ward has committed to Xavier, he announced Monday, per Travis Branham of 247Sports.com.

    The 6-foot-7, 185-pound small forward from DeMatha (MD) Catholic and the Boo Williams AAU Program, chose the Musketeers over Virginia Tech, Maryland, LSU, Indiana, and Louisville.

    “Tyrell’s ceiling is as high as it gets,” DeMatha coach Pete Strickland said.

    “He has excellent ball skills and quickness and combines that with a ‘compete every play’ mindset that truly separates him from his nightly match-up. Tyrell has also shown a unique ability to lead by both example and by encouragement. HIS ‘21-‘22 Stags will reflect his honed and respected competitive fire.”

    Ranked by 247Sports.com as the No. 14 small forward and No. 52 overall prospect in the class of 2022, Ward joins four-star shooting guard Kam Craft as the second commit in Xavier’s 2022 recruiting class.
