SHERIDAN — The Sheridan College men have signed another West Coast talent to their 2013-14 roster.

Jamir Andrews, a 6-foot 3-inch guard from Dublin High School, was a highly sought-after Amateur Athletic Union product, playing for the Nevada Wolverines AAU program last summer, where he caught the eye of coach Steve Smiley and the Generals.

“Jamir is not only a tremendous player, but also an exceptional student in the classroom,” Smiley said. “Jamir has a special ability to score the ball in several different ways, and is extremely hard to guard because of his versatility, strength and his ability to both shoot and get to the rim.”

Andrews averaged 19 points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals per game at Dublin High, earning All-State honors in California as a senior among various other accolades.

“He can play many positions on the floor which is exactly what we were looking for with this opening,” Smiley added. “We fully expect Jamir to be an impact player for us and eventually move on to the Division 1 level.”

Andrews adds to an already strong 2013 recruiting class for the Generals that includes University of California transfer Kaileb Rodriguez and Canadian products Abednego Lufile (6’7”, 230) and Rudolphe Joly (6’10”, 260). They’ve also signed Sam Williams, a 6-foot-7-inch, 215-pound forward from Reno, Nev.; Kyi Thomas, a 6-foot-4-inch 185-pound guard from Sacramento, Calif.; RaVonn Posey a 6-foot-8, 290-pound forward from Milwaukee, Wis.; and Riverton guard Xavier Webb.
