Senior swingman Carlton Christian of Orlando (FL) Evans will sign this week with Marquette, according to his high school coach.

"It's going to be a great fit and he's excited about their style of play," Coach Shirley of Evans said. "His strength is his athletic ability. He plays great pressure defense and he enjoys sharing the basketball."

Christian was at one time ticketed for Central Florida. However, a winter visit to Marquette for the game against Louisville sold him on the Golden Eagles. "He fell in love and they had a great run this year. He really felt at home."

The winger will make it official by signing the scholarship papers on Thursday at his high school. He averaged 12 points a game last season but went off for a game-high 22 in the Florida-Georgia all-star game last month.
