Kwane Marble Jr.

LARAMIE — Kwane Marble Jr. committed to play basketball at the University of Wyoming back in late September.

The 6-foot-5 guard from East High in Denver then decided to re-open his recruitment. However on Sunday, Marble announced his Twitter account he’s re-committed to the Cowboys.

"I loved the coaching staff. I liked the facilities and how they have a lot of different things to keep athletes on track," Marble said during a phone interview with WyoSports in September.

"I liked the environment around the program, and I like what (third-year UW coach Allen Edwards) is doing with the program. He's building a winning program, and I would love to be a part of that.”

Marble also posted a short video on Twitter to help him announce his decision to come to UW.

In 12 games this season, Marble is averaging 20.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 3.7 steals per game. As a junior, Marble averaged 16.6 points, 4.9 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 3.3 steals per game. He shot 52 percent from the field, made 35 3-pointers and shot 34 percent from behind the arc. As a sophomore, Marble averaged 12.8 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.2 steals per game.

Marble said UW projects him to play point guard.

"I like their style of play with no real set positions," he said. "You could be 7-foot tall, but if you can handle the ball and shoot it, coach Edwards is going to let you do it.”

In November, 6-4 guard Kenny Foster from Smoky Hill High in Denver signed with UW. Marble and Foster are friends and played on the same AAU program — The Colorado Hawks.

Marble took his official visit to UW in early September. Marble had scholarship offers from Washington State, Northern Colorado and Arkansas-Little Rock.
