Suel has game, will travel

The past two years, Allan Hancock WR Marquelo Suel (6-3, 195) has been one of the top wideouts in the California JUCO ranks. However, he is still waiting on his first offer, but he's hopeful that come spring at least one D-1 school will take a chance on him.

"Marquelo is just an outstanding player," Hancock head coach Kris Dutra told recently. "The guy is all of the 6'3" we have him listed at and he's a great receiver. He's tough and he makes plays. Honestly, I'm just shocked no one has taken a closer look at him."

As a freshman in 2008, Suel put up solid numbers, posting 36 receptions for 626 yards and four touchdowns and this past season he was a monster hauling in 56 receptions for 800 yards and 12 touchdowns.

"I was First Team All-Conference playing for a team that ran the ball a lot," Suel said with a bit of a chuckle. "I mean, we were conservative offensively, but when I got the chance to make plays, I took advantage."

Suel said Nevada and Utah both showed him quite a bit of interest during the season, but because he was short a math class, they backed off.

"Nevada has told me they still like me, but they wanted to make sure I was set before they offered," Suel said. "I'll be done this summer, early on, so I'm hoping some school sees me and likes me enough to take a chance on me. If they do, they won't be disappointed."

When Suel finishes up this summer, he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
