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.
