In his short tenure as Head Coach of Colorado State Jim McElwain gained a sense of the prep talent in the state of Colorado. Now the Head Coach at Florida, McElwain has stretched beyond the fertile Sunshine State recruiting grounds to offer 2017 Cherry Creek linebacker Santino Marchiol.
Marchiol, an integral piece of Cherry Creek’s 2014 state title squad, with the Florida offer, continues to build an impressive list of offers. Beyond the Gators, Marchiol holds offers from Nebraska, Wisconsin, Northwestern, Wyoming, Hawaii and in state schools Colorado and Colorado State. Also, Marchiol has now hit the Florida trifecta with prior offers from Florida State and Miami.
There is little doubt as to why Marchiol is garnering such an impressive sheet. At 6-2 225, Marchiol is athletic and instinctive. Further, Marchiol is comfortable in all aspects of backer play, equally skilled against the run, in coverage and as a pass rusher.
