Sheridan College Head Coach Steve Smiley has announced today the signing of Las Vegas guard Victor Bermudez to a national letter of intent. Bermudez, a 6’4 175 pound guard played last season at University Park Academy Prep last year in Houston. During his high school playing days at Cheyenne High School in Las Vegas, Bermudez showed his sharp shooting ability by raining in 50% from the field, 88% from the line, and an impressive 48% from beyond the arc. Bermudez joins a highly touted freshman class that is expected to contribute immediately 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).
Coach Smiley had this to say about Victor: “We’re very excited to get a player of Victor’s caliber this late in the recruiting process. Over the past several days, we realized that we might need to sign one more player and that is exactly when Victor became available. Victor is a good-sized, athletic guard with a high skill level that can play anywhere from the 1-3 guard positions. We saw Victor during the Las Vegas AAU Tournament in July when he played for 24-7 Hoops, and Head Coach Pat Amico. He has a chance to be a special player here at Sheridan and at the next level, as well. We’re excited to get him out here and start working with him right away.”
