DeJuan Marrero is one of the better small forward prospects in the class of 2012. The 6-6, 210 lb. forward from Bowman Academy in Gary, Indiana brings athleticsm and defensive skills with him to DePaul next year.
Marrero is rated as a 3-star prospect by Scout.com. He will fit run into Coach Oliver Purnell's uptempo brand of basketball.
"They play full court," Marrero said. "He said that he'll put me at the three and he feels like I can guard the one, two, three, four and sometimes five."
Marrero is looking forward to wearing blue next season.
"I'm excited," Marrero told WeAreDePaul.com. "I know the (DePaul) fans are crazy and are very excited. I'm going to help build back up their program."
