There's a new Marshall in town!

The Missouri Tigers landed a young man they've been chasing for quite some time. Marshall Brown has finally made his intentions known.

The rumors have been circulating for quite some time now. Marshall Brown has been strongly linked with Missouri, well, since at least the spring. Recently, it became official.

"He told me two nights ago," Brown's mother said of Marshall's commitment to the Tigers. "That's his decision and that was his choice so I let him make it."

Brown, a native of Austin, was a big scorer in the adidas ABCD All-Star game. He's a wonderful athlete who often times will play well above the rim.

The 6'8" forward plays equally well facing the basket as a small forward, or posting up as a power forward. He'll get ample opportunities to display his versatility at Missouri.

As a junior, Brown averaged 24 points and 7 rebounds.
