Sheridan, WY – Sheridan College head men's basketball coach Steve Smiley announced today the signing of Indiana native Lamont Prosser to a national letter of intent.
Prosser, a 6-8, 225-pound center from South Side High School in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, played last year at Charis Prep Academy in Wilson, North Carolina under head coach Carlos Peralta. At Charis Prep Prosser averaged 16.8 points, 11.2 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks per game while leading his team to an appearance at the National Prep School Tournament this year. Coach Peralta had this to say about Prosser “Lamont has been an outstanding member of our school and of our team. In every respect, Lamont has exceed the standards that we set for our student-athletes. He has done his part to put himself in a position to succeed. I am very excited to see Lamont moving forward to continue his education and his basketball development at Sheridan College under Coach Smiley. I am confident Lamont is going to the right place."
At South Side High School Prosser averaged another double-double pouring in 18 points a game and hauling down 11 rebounds a game.
“We’re thrilled to have signed Lamont to become a member of the Generals for the next couple of years. I had the opportunity to see him play live this year, and was impressed. When he came on his visit to campus, he took his game to an even higher level and really played well against our guys. He has a unique skill set and is able to score in a variety of different ways, and his size and strength will really help us out down low. The greatest thing about Lamont, however, is that he is a great kid and really embodies the type of student-athlete that we want in our program. We are thrilled to have him!”
Lamont Prosser is the first player to sign with Sheridan College for the 2010 recruiting class.
