St. Paul QB Logan Marchi picks UConn

St. Paul quarterback Logan Marchi didn’t waste much time making his college decision.

After visiting with Temple, Boston College, Rutgers and Oklahoma earlier this month and getting offers from at least Temple and UConn, St. Paul quarterback settled back in-state for UConn’s football camp last week.

Just a few days later, on Saturday night, Marchi announced he’d decided to accept UConn’s offer.

Marchi, a 6-foot-1 175-pound, pro-style quarterback who has put up big numbers at St. Paul in three years, is the first verbal commitment for the Huskies 2014 recruiting class.

“I know the place real well, and I’ve known some of the coaches there for a long time,” Marchi told Kevin Roberts of the Bristol Press on Sunday night. “It’s close to home. It was the most comfortable college that I’ve been to.”

A Winsted resident, Marchi has completed 50 percent of his passes for 6,482 yards, 74 touchdowns against 35 interceptions during his three-year career. He threw for 2,935 yards and 38 touchdowns against 10 interceptions as a junior last year. St. Paul was 3-7.

According to John Silver of the Manchester J-I (via SNY), it’s becoming rather crowded at quarterback for UConn. This year, the Huskies will have six QBs on the roster: Incumbent junior starter Chandler Whitmer, redshirt freshman and Masuk/New London product Casey Cochran, junior Scott McCummings, and newcomers Tim Boyle of Xavier, Plano-Texas’ Richard Lagow and Atlanta’s Kivon Taylor.

Incidentally, Boyle spoke with over the weekend about his recruiting process and decision to switch from Boston College to the Huskies.
