Last weekend, Paul Lusk and Missouri State got the skilled four man they were looking for in Gavin Thurman.
This weekend, the Bears paired Thurman with a skilled center when Bruce Marshall verbally committed during his official visit to Springfield.
Relatively unknown outside the state of Missouri, Marshall is a 6-foot-9 center out of Fayette (Mo.) High.
Lean but coordinated, Marshall is a sharp shooting big man with legitimate three-point range and above average hands.
The senior played with St. Louis based Team Ramey during the summer.
