SC Generals - Available Sophomores

Sheridan College Available Sophomores

Coaches, as the season winds down, we wanted to send you some information on our available sophomores that are still open to recruitment.
We have four sophomores that are still very open to recruitment at this point in time, that we wanted to highlight. Several of these players aren’t getting as much recruitment as they would have if 3 of our other players didn’t sign D1 during the early period (Alston to St. Bonaventure, Dure to Arkansas State, Rodriguez to Nevada). Please let us know if you have any interest or questions for the following players. I’ve included full-game and highlight links (where applicable) for each player below. If you need more film on DVD we’d be happy to send out. The easiest & quickest way is to send an email to or call me at 307-674-6446 x 4000.

 We also have some qualifier Freshmen that would entertain D1 possibilities at this point in time.
We appreciate your interest in our players! Coach Smiley…

Full-game film vs. Northwest in Region 9 Tourney:

Coach Smiley’s comments: “Jeff was an extremely multi-dimensional player in our system this season, playing anywhere from the 1-4. His primary position is on the wing, but he can create for others, and his strength allows him to play a 3 or 4 at the next level as well. He has the ability to get to the rim and finish, and also shoots well from the 3. He’s also a great rebounding guard and really is good guarding on the ball.”


Kyi Thomas:

Hometown: Sacramento, CA

Height & Weight: 6’4”, 200

18pts vs Colorado Northwestern. 12 points vs. Little Big Horn, 11pts 5 reb vs. Western Wyoming,

Full-game film vs. Colorado Northwestern: (box score below)

Coach Smiley’s comments: “Kyi was stuck for most of the season behind several D1 players, but when he was given an opportunity late in the year, he seized the opportunity to be our top defender and never relinquished a starting spot. Kyi’s a phenomenal athlete, strong and explosive, and can guard a multitude of different players. Offensively, as he simplified his game later in the year, he really started to blossom. He’s a capable 3-point shooter and really hard to guard when he attacks the rim. Kyi’s another terrific rebounder as a big guard.”

 Tate Hilgenkamp:

Hometown: Laramie, WY

Height & Weight: 5’10”, 165

Position: PG / SG

Academics: On pace to graduate

Projected level: D2 / NAIA

Key Stats: 216lb Bench, 428lb Squat, 32pull-up max. Started final 6 games of season, was 8-1 as starting PG. Shoots 42% from 3FG. Scored 10 pts vs. Gillette, 10pts at Casper, 10pts at Central Wyoming in last 6 games of regular season.

Full-game vs. Gillette College:

Coach Smiley’s comments: “One of my all-time favorite players. Was a team-first player during his entire career as he played limited minutes behind several D1 players. After a losing streak late in the season, we gave Tate a chance to start and run the show and he far exceeded our expectations, helping us to win 9 straight games before our season ending loss in the Final 4 of the Regional. Tate is a great shooter from 3, crafty at getting to the rim or hitting the pull-up, and has a very good Assist:TO ratio. Tate has a great feel for the game, doesn’t put himself in bad situations on the floor, and makes others around him better.”



Taylor Millay:

Hometown: Casper, WY

Height & Weight: 6’7”, 260

Position: Post

Academics: Will have 48 transferable

Projected level: D2 / NAIA

Key Stats: 236lb Bench, 475lb Squat. Shoots 50% from the field.

One of our top Rebounders per 30 minutes played, but stats are low because playing behind several mid-level D1 players.

Coach Smiley’s comments: “I truly believe Taylor is a diamond in the rough, with the lack of true post players available. He would be an absolute steal in the NAIA and would be a good D2 post player for sure in the right system. Taylor prefers to play back to basket, but also can face up from 10’-15’, runs the floor well, is physical & tough, and is a good rebounder. I was disappointed that we weren’t able to get Taylor more quality minutes this year (played behind 3 posts that will all go D1), but he is well worth a D2 or NAIA taking.”

Generals Sign Colorado Standout Jevon Griffin

The Sheridan College Generals are pleased to announce the first signee of their 2014-15 class with the addition of 6’4” 200lb guard Jevon Griffin of Denver East High School. Widely regarded as one of the top prospects in all of Colorado, Griffin just finished his decorated high school career with a State Championship in March and recently being named to the 2nd-team All Colorado Team from the Denver Post.

 Griffin started his high school career at Kennedy High School, where he was a Freshman starter on the varsity team and had 20 points in his first varsity start. After transferring to Denver East for his junior season, Griffin was a member of teams that were ranked #1 in Colorado’s biggest classification, 5A, as both a junior and senior and he was named to the All-Colorado 2nd-Team during both seasons. East lost in the State Title during Jevon’s junior year, and won the championship this past season. In the title game, Griffin had 14 points and 10 rebounds.
Griffin was also named 1st-Team Denver Public League as a junior and senior, and was named to the All-Tourney State Team during his junior year. On a team with players also signed at Creighton and the University of Colorado this season, Griffin was a tremendous all-around asset, averaging 13 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists per game. In the summer, Griffin played for one of Colorado’s top traveling teams, Chauncey Billups Elite.


Coach Smiley had this to say about Jevon: “We’re beyond excited to announce that Jevon will be the first member of our incoming recruiting class. We’ve targeted Jevon as a top priority for a long time, and getting Jevon’s commitment is a major piece for building our team for next year. Jevon is a big guard that can play multiple spots and guard multiple spots, and we do plan on using Jevon as a big lead guard because of his vision and feel for the game. We anticipate Jevon having an immediate impact on our program this coming season.”

The Generals are coming off of another stellar season in which they finished with a 27-6 overall record, Region 9 North runner-up, Final Four Appearance in the Region 9 Tournament, and ranked as high as #21 in the National Top 25 poll.
