By Scott Powers
Purdue redshirt junior power forward Sandi Marcius will transfer to DePaul, according to a source.
Marcius, a 6-foot-9, 268-pound forward, also considered transferring to Nevada. He will pursue a graduate degree unavailable at Purdue and will be eligible next season.
Marcius played in 29 games, made five starts and averaged 3.3 points, 2.5 rebounds and 9.3 minutes for Purdue last season. He led the Boilermakers in blocks in six games and in rebounds once. He had a career-high 13 points against Michigan.
Marcius is the sixth player to be added to DePaul's roster for next season. He joins Morgan Park (Chicago) senior point guard Billy Garrett Jr., IMG Academy (Fla.) senior center Thomas Hamilton Jr., South Plains College (Texas) sophomore center Forrest Robinson, Citrus Junior College (Calif.) sophomore power forward Greg Sequele and Oak Hill Academy (Va.) senior guard R.J. Curington.
