FSU football: 2022 QB commit Nicco Marchiol announces two official visits

FSU football commit Nicco Marchiol was the first blue-chip quarterback to commit to Mike Norvell and Kenny Dillingham.

Marchiol lives in Arizona and has flown to FSU more than once in the past four months. He was on campus when he committed in January and came back to the spring game in April.

Marchiol, one of the biggest recruiters for the 2022 recruiting class, announced he’ll take two official visits in June.

Neither of those visits will be to Tallahassee as of now:

Michigan State was in Marchiol’s final four lists of schools and West Virginia is a program that recently offered him on April 30th.

The question FSU football fans want to know is if these visits were already planned, or are they a result of AJ Duffy committing to the Noles a couple of weeks ago?

Marchiol’s been extremely quiet on social media since Duffy committed and now has these visits.

Normally, I’d say it’s not a good look for Marchiol to take these official visits after recruiting so hard for the Noles the past few months.

By all accounts, it’s been the expectation of FSU coaches to take two quarterbacks in the recruiting cycle. After all, AJ Duffy was on campus at the spring game when Nicco Marchiol was there.

It has been a weird recruitment cycle, to say the least, and players have not been able to officially visit schools. That will change after June 1, when the NCAA ends the recruiting dead period, and it makes sense if Marchiol wants to visit those schools.

All recruits receive five official visits, and it’s a chance for them to see places they’ve never seen before and gather all of the information before ultimately deciding where they want to enroll. I can’t knock Marchiol for that, but it’s kind of weird after going so hard on the recruiting trails and appearing on multiple podcasts and talking about who he was recruiting to FSU.

I’d have to think some recruits would question how committed he was if he was visiting other places. However, he could visit those places and then visit FSU and explain why Tallahassee is that much better as well.

If Marchiol doesn’t schedule an official visit to FSU football at some point or visit during FSU’s quarterback camp on June 18-19? I think we can begin to read those tea leaves. Until then, we’ll have to sit back and see how this one unfolds!
