SACRAMENTO -- Sacramento State head men's basketball coach Brian Katz announced the signing of guard Marcus Greene to a National Letter of Intent. Greene, who prepped at Archbishop Mitty High School in San Jose, will enroll at the University in the fall as a freshman.
A native of Gilroy, Calif., Greene becomes the fourth member of Sacramento State's 2021-22 recruiting class. He joins Southwestern Oklahoma State guard/forward Damion Thornton, Jesuit High School guard Chris Holley, and forward/center Jonathan Komagum (transfer from Toledo).
Coach Katz quote - "We are really excited about Marcus, and have watched him closely the past two years. He has always been very skilled with high basketball intellect. The game changer was when he went to prep school and added 40 pounds of muscle. That has allowed him to become college ready and taken his game to the next level. He has been well coached and comes from a great Archbishop Mitty program."
