Julius Marble, a 6-8 forward out of Dallas, made it official on Wednesday morning that he has signed his national letter of intent to play basketball at Michigan State University next season.

Marble rounds out the class of 2019 for head coach Tom Izzo.  The veteran coach has already received commitments from Detroit-area point guard Mark "Rocket" Watts last week, as well as small forward Malik Hall out of Wichita, Kansas.

Marble had said publicly that he would sign his NLI to attend Michigan State as recently as last week.

The Spartans will lose seniors Kenny Goins and Matt McQuaid for next season.  And junior forward Nick Ward announced last week that he ends to forego his final year of eligibility and enter the June NBA Draft. However, Big Ten Player of the Year Cassius Winston announced last Friday that he will return to Michigan State for his senior season.
