Chipola JC Picks Up DePaul Transfer

The Chipola Indians have made another addition to their 2014 recruiting class, with former DePaul Blue Demons player DeJuan Marrero signing with the Indians this week.

Marrero, a 6-foot-5, 219-pound small forward, played in 25 games for the Blue Demons as a freshman in 2013-14, averaging 1.3 points and 2.3 rebounds per game while shooting 40 percent from the field.

The Gary, Ind., native was rated a three-star prospect out of high school in 2012 by ESPN, Rivals, and Scout after playing four years for Bowman Academy.

Marrero suffered a torn ACL before his freshman season at DePaul and had to take a redshirt, and he will have one year of eligibility to play for the Indians.

He joins a Chipola recruiting class that includes 6-foot-3 Odessa transfer KJ Scott, 6-foot-7 Atlanta forward Greg King, 6-foot-7 Atlantic City forward Junior Saintel, 6-foot-2 Central Community College-Columbus transfer Tra-Deon Hollins, and 6-foot-10 Gambian big man Ali Sinear.

The Indians return three players from last year’s roster: 7-foot center DeJuan Harvey, 6-foot-6 forward Ty Baker, and 7-foot center Legend Robertin, who sat out last year as a redshirt.
