I have heard that the Bobcat Basketball coaches are tracking the progress of a team mate of a current Bobcat player. Victor Bermudez is a 6-2 (although I have seen him listed any where from 6-1 to 6-3) combo guard who is currently attending University Park Academy a prep school located in Houston TX. Last season Bermudez played with current Bobcat freshman guard Chris McCall at Cheyenne high school in Las Vegas Nevada.
Last season at Cheyenne, Bermudez averaged 9 points and 2 rebounds while shooting 50% from the field 48% from the three point arc and 88% from the free-throw line. He played some of his best ball in the last half of the season.
After completing his senior year at Cheyenne, Bermudez along with Cheyenne teammate J’Quon Wrotten was invited attend the Houston prep school, in what I will assume is an effort to generate more interest from D-1 schools. I had heard last year both players were receiving a lot of interest from D-2 and junior college programs.
Cheyenne was really loaded last year with 3 players earning college scholarships it will be interesting to see where Bermudez or Wrotten end up. Here are the other Cheyenne players and where they ended up.
Chris McCall 6-4 guard (17 pts) – Montana State
Jaylen Henry 6-7 power forward (13 pts) – Eastern Washington
Paul Gentle 6-6 power forward (6 pts) – Lincoln University
J’Quon Wrotten 6-1 guard (9 pts) – University Park Academy Prep
Victor Bermudez 6-2 guard (9 pts) – University Park Academy Prep
This past summer he hit the AAU circuit as a 5th year senior and made some waves at the Pangos All-American LIVE and Cream of Crop events he was named a top 40 selection in both. Here a couple short blurbs from Jeremy Orr of givengotv.com at these events.
Victor Bermudez 6’2 Senior Guard (Pangos All-American LIVE) – Solid size and length for the guard position has a solid pull-up jumper that he can hit from three in transition or in the half court around the mid-range area.
Victor Bermudez 6’2 Senior Guard (Pangos Cream of Crop) – Victor is the guard that seems to have the most potential of all the Dogcatcher guards due to his size and athleticism.
I used the term track because I think Bermudez is an interesting prospect, who the Bobcats are keeping an eye on but it might be a little premature to say he is being actively recruited. From what I understand along with Montana Air force and Colorado State are also watching Bermudez. In years past Bermudez was the type of player that would sign with a JC out of high school and develop his game there before possibly signing with a school after. That still might be the route he ends up taking, but with the number of prep schools popping around the county the prep school route is becoming a viable option for some athletes.
