Idris Lasisi signs Letter of Intent to play for Generals!

Sheridan College Generals Men’s Basketball coach Steve Smiley is proud to announce that Idris Lasisi, a 6’2”, 195 shooting guard from Leuven, Belgium, has signed a National Letter of Intent to play for the Generals for the 2009-10 season. Lasisi, who graduated from Sint-Pieterscollege high school in Leuven, will be a freshmen for the Generals this year.
Coach Smiley had the following to say about Idris: “We are very pleased to get a player of Idris’s caliber so late in the summer. We originally thought that we were done recruiting, but when we had a chance to get involved with Idris’s recruitment a couple of weeks ago, we tried everything possible to get him enrolled for the fall semester. We were fortunate that he was able to get his student visa so quickly from the U.S. Embassy and get here in time for the start of classes…. Idris’s main qualities are his physical presence, skill level, and great feel for the game. He is able to stretch opposing defenses with his shooting ability, and he should be a lock-down defender for us once he gets acclimated to our style of play. He had a very productive summer in the Belgian Pro-Am league and he has a chance to be a very special player for us in the future.”
