The Sheridan College Generals Men’s Basketball Coach Steve Smiley is excited to announce the signing of 6’4 guard Kyi Thomas to a national letter of intent. Thomas, a 6’4 185 pound guard from Sacramento, California joins the Generals after an illustrious career at Sheldon High School. During his senior season at Sheldon, Kyi helped lead the Huskies to a 29-6 record, winning the NorCal Championship, and finished as the state runner-up in California. As a senior, Thomas was an All-Conference selection while averaging 14.2 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 2.0 steals per game. Thomas made 54 3-point field goals during his senior season while shooting 43% from beyond the arc.
Thomas spent this past season at Sacramento State University where he was a red-shirt wide-receiver for the Hornet football program. During his senior season on the field, Thomas went for 638 yards receiving, with 5 touchdowns.
Coach Smiley had this to say about Kyi: “We’re thrilled to announce that Kyi Thomas will be a member of our team next season. Kyi is not only a talented basketball player, but he’s a really good kid that is focused and extremely mature for his age. Kyi is a big-time athlete, with great size for a shooting guard and he has the ability to score, rebound, and defend. He’s been a part of a winning program at Sheldon High School in Sacramento, and he’s the type of player that will help us immediately. His natural position is shooting guard, but he has the ability to guard positions 1-3 if needed. He will be very versatile in our program.”
