Sheridan Finalizes Recruiting Class with German Forward
Sheridan, WY – Sheridan College head men's basketball coach Steve Smiley announced today the signing of Walter-Klingenbeck-Realschule forward Jermaine Julien Lippert to a national letter of intent.
Lippert, a 6-8, 230 pound forward from Munich, Germany will have an immediate impact on the Sheridan College program. In 2008-09 Jermaine played for Fc Bayern Muenchen where he averaged 23 points, 11.5 rebounds, and 2.5 steals per game in leading them to a quarterfinals appearance in their post-season play. Last year Jermaine played with MTSV Schwabing where he continued to put up great numbers averaging 31 points, 11 rebounds, and 2.3 steals per game. His points per game along with rebounds per game where ranked first on the team in those categories. Upon completion of his time at Sheridan College, Jermaine will continue to play collegiately in the United States, as he is already verbally committed to NCAA Division 1, Montana State University in Bozeman, MT.
“Jermaine is a very talented and explosive player and he is very unique in that he has a great skill set for a player of his size. Jermaine could play anywhere from a small forward to a post player-type of position, but he’s naturally a small forward that can play both on the perimeter and in the post, and he will have the ability to be a huge asset on the defensive end of the floor because of his size, quickness, and overall athleticism. Jermaine should have an instant impact on our program and we’re excited for him to arrive so we can begin to work with him”
