While primarily a safety, he was selected to All-America team as a return specialist in 2015. He is the younger brother of former Tennessee Volunteers and former NFL safety Eric Berry, and his twin brother, Elliott, also played at Tennessee.
Berry attended and played college football at the University of Tennessee from 2014–2017 under head coach Butch Jones.
In his freshman year in 2014, Berry split kickoff return duties with Devrin Young while Cameron Sutton and Jacob Carter dealt with the punt returning duties. He averaged 29.5 yards per return on 14 attempts on the season.
Berry's sophomore season in 2015 was very productive. He handled most of the kick return duties on the season while Sutton and Alvin Kamara handled punt returns. In the season opener against Bowling Green, he had a 67-yard kickoff return. Two weeks later, against Western Carolina, he had an 88-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.

In the Outback Bowl, against Northwestern, he had a 100-yard interception return for a touchdown to end the 45–6 victory for the Volunteers. Overall, on the season, he averaged an NCAA-leading 38.3 yards per kick return on 21 attempts. His 804 total kickoff return yards and three kickoff return touchdowns led the SEC in 2015. For the 2015 season, Berry earned Consensus All-American honors.
In his junior season in 2016, Berry was the primary kick return until suffering a knee injury against Tennessee Tech, which kept him out of the remainder of the season. He recorded a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against South Carolina. Overall, he averaged a SEC-leading 32.9 yards per kick return on 14 attempts.
Berry's final season with the Volunteers was limited to only two games due to his prior injury. He totaled four kick returns for a 35.8 average.
For his collegiate career, Berry finished first in NCAA and SEC history with 34.3 kickoff return yards per attempt and his four return touchdowns are tied for the most in SEC history.
