The SUNY Sullivan athletics program has produced yet another outstanding player who will advance his education and playing career at a Division I school next fall. Marvin Jean will sign with NCAA Division I Utah State University on Wednesday, April 18 at 6:00 pm inside the Paul Gerry Field House on the campus of SUNY Sullivan.
Jean, a 6 foot 5 inch wing for the Sullivan Generals, averaged 14.4 points/game, 6.8 rebounds/game, and sunk more than 150 three pointers during his playing career at SUNY Sullivan. He has earned the honor of both Fist Team All-Conference and Second Team All-Region appointments, and has acted as a Sullivan Generals team captain.
Jean, who leaves SUNY Sullivan as one of the college's Top 15 All-Time Scorers, graduates this May with his AAS Degree in Sport Management & Recreation Leadership, having compiled not only nice stats over two years but good grades as well. Jean visited Utah State's campus the weekend of April 14, and decided to sign with the Aggies, who compete in the Western Athletic Conference, for next fall.
"I am happy and excited for Marvin signing with Utah State," says Generals Head Coach, Kevin DeVantier. "He has been a great member of our program the last 2 years and deserves this opportunity. I know he will move on and make SUNY Sullivan proud."
And, indeed, the entire SUNY Sullivan community is proud of Marvin Jean for his accomplishments both on the court and in the classroom. The college wishes him well on this next step of his journey.
