Julius Marble signed a letter of intent on Wednesday to play for coach Tom Izzo next season.
The 6-foot-8 forward will be a relatively unheralded freshman along with highly touted guard Mark Watts and forward Malik Hall on a talented and experienced team.
“Most importantly for us, he’s a great kid and a good student who was very well-coached,” said MSU Head Coach Tom Izzo.
Izzo added that Marble reminds him of former Spartans standout Andre Hutson, who helped Michigan State win its second national championship in 2000, because he can shoot 3-pointers and score in the lane with low-post moves.
Marble averaged 16.8 points, 9.7 rebounds and 1.4 blocks last season at Dallas Jesuit.
