Sheridan College forward Kaileb Rodriguez will continue his career at the University of Nevada, giving them a verbal commitment this past weekend. Rodriguez enters his first season in a Generals uniform after red-shirting last year at University of California-Berkley. The 6’9, 215 pound forward was invited this past summer to play in the Jerry Mullens Junior College Top-100 Camp in St. Louis, Missouri. A Denver, Colorado native, Rodriguez played at Thunderidge High School. In his senior season the Grizzlies post a 20-6 record, finished as the 5th ranked team in the state of Colorado. Rodriguez averaged 11 points, 7 rebounds, 4 blocks, and 3 assists per game
Rodriguez, a freshman, will play for the Wolf Pack in the Mountain West Conference beginning in the 2014-2015 season as a red-shirt sophomore.
“We’re really excited that Kaileb has decided to commit to Nevada, and it sounds like it will be a perfect fit for Kaileb both on the floor and in the classroom. Kaileb has a high ceiling and is continually improving as a player. We’re really excited to see how he does for us this year as a General, and glad that he’ll be finishing his final 3 years at a great program in the Mountain West.”
