Bossier Parish freshman Jaeden Marshall parlayed a big season into signing a Division I scholarship with the University of Nebraska-Omaha where he will have three years of eligibility.
Marshall finished the regular season as the leading scorer in Region XIV with a 19.9 points per game average. He became the first freshman in school history to be selected to the first team All-Region XIV North.
“Jaeden got off to a slow start, but finished the season as one of the top scorers in our league,” said BPCC coach John Anthony Anglin. “He battled adversity early in the season and never quit. Jaeden made big shots for us in our biggest games this season.”
Marshall was named one of the top 50 junior college freshman in the country by the jucorecruiting.com scouting service and one of the top 48 in the country by JUCO Advocate scouting service.
He had a season-high 34 points which ranks in the top 10 in school history in single game scoring performances.
He becomes the fourth NCAA Division I signee in the J.A. Anglin era at BPCC and the second this season joining Derick Hamilton who signed with Texas-El Paso earlier this year. Tutu Majok signed with Wisconsin-Green Bay and Paul King at Alcorn State after last season.
“We are proud of him for all he accomplished on and off the floor at BPCC,” stated Anglin of Marshall.
