Sheridan College announced the signing of Washington state native Donald Gaddy to a national letter of intent. Gaddy, a 6'0", 165-pound guard from Bellarmine Prep School in Tacoma, WA, averaged 16.5 pgg, 8.1 assists, 2.1 rebounds, and 2.3 steals per game, while leading his to a 14-9 record as a senior. Donald was honored as a 2-time first-team all-leaguge selection his Junior and Senior years, athlete of the month in Washington, and nominated as a McDonalds All-American.
He will be expected to contribute immediately for the Generals after losing standout guards Matt Glover (signed at Penn State), Omar McDade (signed at Fort Hays State) and Kendrick Morse (signed at Fort Hays State). Donald comes from a family with a great basketball background. His brother, Abdul, was a McDonald's All-American and is currently playing at the University of Washington.
"We're thrilled to get a player of Donald's caliber to help fill our guard position for next year. Our #1 priority in the upcoming class was to find a pass-first point guard that would make his teammates better, and we also wanted to find a guard that had the ability to put tremendous pressure on the ball on the defensive end. Donald fits the mold exactly. He's a very good athlete, has a great feel for the game and for getting his teammates involved, and should be a great defensive player. His main goal, in terms of player improvement, is to improve on his jump shot from the perimeter. If he is able to become a consistent shooter from the perimeter, he has a chance to be a very special player."
