The UND men's basketball team picked up its third commitment of the 2020 recruiting class on Monday night.
Tyree Ihenacho, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard from Savage, Minn., announced his commitment and became the latest member of new head coach Paul Sather's first recruiting class for the Fighting Hawks.

Ihenacho joins 6-8 forward Andrew Bergan of Aberdeen, S.D., and 6-2 point guard Nate Shockey of Elmhurst, Ill., as members of the 2020 recruiting class.
Ihenacho plays high school basketball at Prior Lake, a team primarily known as the home of 6-11 power forward Dawson Garcia, who has drawn interest from many of the NCAA's Power 5 programs.
Prior Lake won a program-best 25 games (25-4) last season. It lost 62-45 to Eden Prairie in the Section 2AAAA title game.
Ihenacho was the fourth-leading scorer on Prior Lake last season with 9.2 points per game. Garcia led the team with 27.5 points per game, while now-University of Denver big Robert Jones averaged 17.1 and now-Truman State guard Sam Nissen averaged 14.5.
Ihenacho added 4.8 rebounds and 3.1 assists.
