Sheridan College Sharpshooter Chooses Texas State
Sheridan College sophomore guard Victor Bermudez has committed to Texas State University to play for Coach Danny Kaspar. The All-Region IX performer, Bermudez averaged 14.1 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 2.4 assists this season for the Generals while starting in all 31 games. One of the nations top three-point sharp shooters, Bermudez finished 7th in the nation in three-point field goals made at 98 on the season. In two seasons at Sheridan College, Bermudez saw action in all 63 games, made 147 three-point baskets, and scored 682 points.
"It's a blessing and a great opportunity for me to continue my career at the Division 1 level and play for the mid-major coach of the year, Coach Kasper, and take what I have learned here to Texas State due to the fact that its similar systems," stated Bermudez. "It's very exciting. It has been a great two year experience here at Sheridan College. Being able to become a better basketball player, a better student, and better person. I enjoyed playing for Coach Smiley and Coach Magrino; they taught to be a sponge and soak up as much as I can, which helped me to become a better player."
Coach Smiley commented on Victor's commitment: "We're really excited that Victor has signed a National Letter of Intent to play for Texas State and Coach Kaspar. I know this was a tough decision for Victor as there were a couple of schools that did a tremendous job recruiting him, but ultimately he felt comfortable at Texas State and confident that he could compete and make an impact on their program next year. Victor has a very unique skill set because of his elite ability to shoot the ball, and we're excited to see how he progresses in the future. He made a huge impact on our program for the past two seasons, and he will be missed!"
Bermudez joins Coach Kaspar in his inaugural class as he takes the helm for the Bobcats. Kaspar takes over the Sun Belt’s newest addition after leading Stephen F. Austin to five 20 win seasons in the past six years. This past season Kaspar lead SFA to a 27-5 record, including an NIT berth, and the Hugh Durham Award as the nation's top Mid-Major head coach.
