Texas center headed to Big East

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Fort Bend (Texas) Bush center Aaron Durley verbally committed to Marquette on Wednesday night.

The 6-foot-10 Durley chose the Golden Eagles over South Florida, South Alabama and Tennessee-Chattanooga.

"I just thought it was the better fit," Durley told the paper. "Coach (Buzz) Williams does a great job up there with his players and the program. When I came up there for an official visit two weeks ago, I liked it and I could see myself playing and getting a lot better. So it just felt like a good fit for me."

Durley joins ESPNU 100 small forward Steve Taylor (Chicago/Simeon), small forward Jamal Ferguson (Norfolk, Va./Maury H.S.) and junior college transfer T.J. Taylor (Denison, Texas) in Williams' 2012 class.
