Citrus junior college sophomore forward Greg Sequele has committed to DePaul, according to his college coach.

The 6-foot-9, 210-pound Sequele, who is from Sainte-Rose, Guadeloupe, chose the Blue Demons over Kansas State and USC.

"He was very comfortable with DePaul's staff, and we play a similar style," Citrus coach Chris Victor said on Friday. "We play a fast-paced style and we're aggressive on defense. He'll be playing the same way next year."

Victor touted Sequele's athleticism and his ability to play small forward and power forward.

"He's an extremely athletic 6-9 forward with an inside and outside game, very, very versatile," Victor said. "He'll be ready to go when he arrives at DePaul. Because of his athleticism, he's a playmaker on defense. He can make plays most people can't. He can also score in so many ways."

Sequele played his freshman college season at Southern Idaho, where he averaged 2.9 points and 2.1 rebounds and shot 58.1 percent from the field. He transferred to Citrus in California prior to this season.

Sequele originally committed to Washington State out of Ribet Academy in Los Angeles, but he didn't meet the eligibility requirements. He averaged 13 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks as a senior in high school. He was ranked the 52nd power forward in the country in the Class of 2011 by ESPN.

Sequele is DePaul's third Class of 2013 commitment. He joins Morgan Park (Chicago) senior point guard Billy Garrett and South Plains Junior College (Texas) sophomore center Forrest Robinson.
