Kwane Marble 2nd Colorado Prep to Verbally Commit to Cowboys Basketball
Kwane Marble, a 6-5, 191-pound multi-dimensional player, from Denver East, became the second Denver-area high school player in four days to verbally commit to play basketball at the University of Wyoming on Monday.
On Friday, Kenny Foster, a 6-foot-4 guard from Smokey Hill High School, announced his commitment.
It will be interesting to see what direction the Cowboys decide to go, in light of the fact that barring a transfer of a player at the end of the coming season, there would appear to be only two scholarships available for next year’s freshman class.
Marble made his official visit to Wyoming on Sept. 15. Cameron Reece, a 6-foot-6 forward from Sheridan College, also made his official visit that day.
Marble, who also was being recruited by Washington State, Northern Colorado and Arkansas-Little Rock, averaged 16.6 points, 4.9 runers, 4.6 assists and 3.3 steals per game last year.
Marble and Foster both play for the AAU Denver Hawks.
"I liked it,” Marble told GoWyoGo.com of his visit. “I enjoyed seeing the attention the athletes get from the fans, the campus feeling, the perks the athletes receive in the (High Altitude Performance Center), the cafeteria for the athletes, the high altitude training chamber, and the basketball arena. Really all of it."
The 2019 prospect looks to possess the makeup needed for Edwards’ system, and type of player he is recruiting, a long, rangy athlete with skills to play all the positions.
"The coach said they want guys to who can play all positions. They said they played a 6-9 guy bringing up the ball," Marble said. "They like my ability to defend bigger guards and my ability to attack the rim through traffic and picks, and hit the jumper. I say I play with energy, always clapping and supporting my teammates."
Marble plays the 1, 2, and 3 positions for Denver East, along with the AAU Colorado Hawks in the summer, according to GoWyoGo.com.
