Colorado came late to the party, but yesterday offered 2017 Cherry Creek linebacker Santino Marchiol. Of late, Marchiol has been one of the hottest prospects in the mountain region gaining offers from Wisconsin, Nebraska and Florida State.
Marchiol’s offer comes on the heels of his teammate and fellow Cherry Creek defender Jon Van Diest picking up a Colorado Buffalo offer the previous day.
Van Diest and Marchiol were key pieces of a Cherry Creek defense that helped the Bruins bring home the 2014 5A state championship. Further, the diverse and talented defenders are part of a 2015 defense that could be a top unit in Colorado.
