CEDAR CITY, Utah, May 7 – Trey Kennedy, a guard from Las Vegas, Nev., has signed a National Letter of Intent to play basketball at Southern Utah University, Coach Nick Robinson has announced.

Kennedy, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound guard from Bishop Gorman High School, averaged 12.7 points, 6.3 rebounds and 4.7 assists while serving as a team captain in 2013, helping Coach Grant Rice’s Gaels to a 29-3 record and their second straight state championship.

“We are excited to welcome Trey and his family to Southern Utah,” Robinson said. “Trey comes from a great family, a championship high school program, and has been well-coached during his career. He brings additional leadership and versatility to the Thunderbird backcourt.”

Kennedy brings the Thunderbirds’ list of signees to six for the class of 2013. He joins fellow spring signees Juwan Major (Las Vegas HS) and Salt Lake Community College’s Casey Oliverson, as well as Westwind (Ariz.) Prep’s John Marshall, South Sevier High’s Race Parsons, and LaVerne (Calif.) Lutheran High School’s McKay Anderson – who all signed NLIs during the November early signing period -- in this year’s signing class.
