Kentucky Wesleyan Adds Morehead State Transfer Marcus Fuggins

Kentucky Wesleyan College has added Morehead State transfer Marcus Fuggins for the 2015-16 season.

Here's a release from KWC:

OWENSBORO, Ky. (July 7, 2015) — Morehead State forward/center Marcus Fuggins (FUDGE-INS) will transfer to eight-time NCAA Division II Champion Kentucky Wesleyan College for his final year of eligibility, as announced by Panther head men's basketball coach Happy Osborne.

Fuggins, a 6-foot-9, 255-pounder from Moreno Valley, Calif. (Westwind Prep Academy), averaged 1.5 points, 2.0 rebounds and 8.2 minutes in 25 games with two starts for the Eagles as a junior in 2014-15.

He shot 41.0 percent from the field and finished third in blocked shots with 14 for head coach Sean Woods.

He posted season-bests of five points twice, seven rebounds at Green Bay and three blocks against East Tennessee.

"Marcus gives us a big physical presence with his height and girth," Osborne said. "He's a shot blocker and rebounder who can score inside the paint. Along with previous signee, All-State center Justin Miller, they both will more than take care of our inside game. "

As a sophomore, Fuggins led San Bernardino Valley College in blocks with 54 for a 1.5 average in starting 24 of 26 games played in 2013-14. He averaged 5.9 points and 4.9 rebounds.

He shot 52.5 percent from the field and 49.5 percent from the free throw line. He helped the Wolverines to a 29-8 record and a runner-up finished California Community College Athletic Association Championship.

Fuggins played his freshman season at Howard College in Big Spring, Texas in 2012-13. He led Hawks in blocks with 26 in 33 games and five starts.

He averaged 1.5 points, 2.1 rebounds and 9.4 minutes while shooting 55.2 percent from the field and 53.8 percent from the free throw line.

Fuggins graduated from Westwind Prep Academy in Phoenix. He helped the Warriors to the 2012 Arizona 2A State Championship as a senior. He averaged 4.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.5 blocks for head coach Jacob Miller.
