Bobcat Commit: Jermaine Julien Lippert

Lippert (#12) stuffs a shot

As I mentioned earlier the Bobcat coaching staff has received a commitment Jermaine Julien Lippert from Munich, Germany. Lippert is a 6-8 230 pound forward who plays all three front court position. I believe he will play the power forward spot in college but he has the shooting range and athleticism that would allow him to play the small forward spot also.

During his senior year in high school in 2008-09 he played for Bayern Muenchen school he averaged 23 points, 11.5 rebounds, and 2.5 steals per game. Last year he played for MTSV Schwabing in Munich a club team that feature a few American players. For MTSV he averaged a whopping averaging 31 points, 11 rebounds, and 2.3 steals per game. As you might guess his points and rebounds were top averages on his team. This year Lippert was named one of the top 40 under 20 basketball players in Germany.

Now the big question when looking at such gaudy stats from a foreign player is, how stiff was the competition and who will he do in the United States. I am not qualified to answer this question but I got to feel playing for U20 German club team the competition has to be at least equal or greater that Montana AA Class, but I am guessing not quite up to the level of competition of the larger urban conference here in the U.S.. Still though average 30+ points at any level is pretty impressive.

Lippert at 230 pounds is a very physical interior player, but also has shooting range out past the European three point range. He is very athletic and has long and quick hands that allows him to play solid defense. He has played all three front court positions but because of his size tends to get the most time at the 4 and 5. I hear he wants to play the small forward in college.

I am told that Lippert is expected to be an immediate impact player at Sheridan JC and that some their even feel he could be a JC All American type player. It will be very interesting to see what he does this winter at Sheridan and if he can live up to the hype.

Here is an evaluation from Sheridan JC coach Steve Smiley

“Jermaine is a very talented and explosive player and he is very unique in that he has a great skill set for a player of his size. Jermaine could play anywhere from a small forward to a post player-type of position, but he’s naturally a small forward that can play both on the perimeter and in the post, and he will have the ability to be a huge asset on the defensive end of the floor because of his size, quickness, and overall athleticism. Jermaine should have an instant impact on our program and we’re excited for him to arrive so we can begin to work with him”
