Marshall's basketball program picked up a big addition Tuesday morning when Snow College forward Cheikh Tidiane Sane announced via Twitter that he would continue his college career with the Thundering Herd.
Standing 6-foot-9, Sane averaged 10.2 points and 9.1 rebounds in 31 games this season. He also blocked 49 shots.
A native of Senegal, Sane took an official visit to Marshall this weekend. Besides the Herd, he also received strong recruiting interest from Montana and Montana State. As a junior college transfer he has two years of eligibility remaining.
Sane joins fellow JUCO's Justin Edmonds and Shawn Smith in this years recruiting class along with division one transfers Ryan Taylor and TyQuane Goard.
