Brooks' Anthony Barry commits to Merrimack

Brooks School shooting guard Anthony Barry accepted a scholarship offer from Merrimack College and committed to the Division 2 Warriors yesterday, according to his AAU coach with the Middlesex Magic, Mike Crotty Jr.

Barry, a 6-foot-3 Milford native, has seen his stock rise slowly since transferring from his native Milford High and repeating his junior year at the North Andover campus. Last summer, running with the Magic, he displayed impressive athleticism at AAU Nationals.

Crotty Jr. had this to say about Barry at the time:

"Barry continued to show his fantastic athleticism on both ends of the court all Summer long. A bona fide D2 prospect with multiple scholarship offers in hand, Barry continued to impress as he shut down many heralded wings from all over the country. His ability to defend at such a high level, paired with his great ability to finish and make the mid-range jump shot have Anthony in a great spot in terms of his recruitment. He is also one of the best rebounding 2 guards I have ever had the pleasure to be around, and he possesses fantastic leadership qualities."
