The DePaul Blue Demons frontcourt got a nice boost on Monday morning, as Northern Illinois big man Marin Maric transferred to the school. Eric Bossi of Rivals had the news first.
Northern Illinois big man Marin Maric has pulled out of the Draft and will head to Depaul. Impact big man for the Blue Demons— Eric Bossi (@ebosshoops) May 8, 2017
Marin, a 6’11 center, adds some much-needed height and experience to the Blue Demons frontcourt that featured a mix of freshmen and walk-ons last season.
Marin averaged 14.4 points and 8.4 rebounds per game for the Huskies last season, both marks led the team. Marin’s offensive and defensive rebound percentages were both in the top 150 nationwide, as well.
The Blue Demons now have one scholarship remaining for next season.
