“We are thrilled that Marquis has elected to continue his education and play basketball at Rutgers University,” said Waters. “Marquis is first and foremost a winner. In addition, Marquis is a leader. When you watch him play you notice two things – his team wins and he is involved in all of the big plays. Those are traits that we look for in our program.
“Marquis plays very hard and he plays with a great deal of passion,”
added Waters. “I am excited that he will be a part of our family here
at Rutgers University.”
