Marcus Santos-Silva Named Preseason Big 12 Newcomer of the Year

The grad transfer from VCU gets the first preseason award for the Red Raiders


It is preseason award time in the Big 12 and the Red Raiders just secured their first.

VCU grad transfer, Marcus Santos-Silva was named Preseason Big 12 Newcomer of the Year. The 6’7 F/C is a load down in the paint and uses his size to be a force on the boards. During his two years starting at VCU, MSS averaged 7.4 Rebs and 8.9 Rebs a game. While not being the tallest big, MSS still averaged just over a block per game at VCU.

Santos-Silva figures to be the starting center for the Red Raiders this season and help fix the rebounding issues from last season. MSS is a grad transfer and has one season of eligibility remaining.
