Sequele Picks Big East School

Southern Californian big man Greg Sequele has made his decision. The power forward/center from Citrus junior college will be taking his game to the Big East next season.

Greg Sequele verbally committed to DePaul coach Oliver Purnell today and will join the Blue Demons recruiting class for 2013.

The 6-8, 230 lb. big man chose DePaul over Kansas State and USC.

Sequele went to high school at Ribet Academy in Southern California, which is the same high school that produced former DePaul center Krys Faber.

William Middlebrooks coached both Sequele and Faber at Ribet Academy.

"He's a potential pro," Middlebrooks said of the future Blue Demon. "He has freak athleticism. He can play the three, four, or five. He can defend the three, four, or five easy. He can defend the perimeter. He rebounds well. He's great in transition. He's a really big-time player."

Sequele originally signed with Washington State in 2010, but did not qualify academically. He then spent one year at the College of Southern Idaho before landing at Citrus Community College in California.

With the NCAA raising admission standards for juco prospects in 2013, it looks like Sequele is on track to meet those new standards. He speaks four languages Spanish, French, Creole, and English.

"He's a pretty good student," said Middlebrooks. "He's doing well. Coach is pretty happy with him. Academically he's fine, he's got all A's and B's. He's on point. He will start there."

Sequele is the third commitment for the Blue Demons for 2013. He will join Morgan Park senior guard Billy Garrett, Jr. and South Plains junior college big man Forrest Robinson at DePaul in 2013.
