July 8, 2012Many college coaches keep in regular contact with Jacky Marcellus. Several stick out, currently habituate a larger portion of his mind.
"Coach (Erik) Slaughter from West Virginia, Coach (Dave) Johnson from Cincinnati, Coach (Don) Brown from UConn," said Marcellus. "There are a lot more."
Will his final college choice wind up being amongst these three? Conventional media wisdom has assigned West Virginia the Favorite throne. And the Big 12 newcomer will be the next school to host Marcellus.
"I am going to West Virginia for camp," said Jacky Marcellus. "It is the 27th. I just came from Appalachian State, this week. It was real great."
Appalachian State coaches must be thrilled to get the three-star RB to visit.
"I was just there for unofficial visit."
After the camp appearance in Morgantown Marcellus' coveted presence lacks direction.
"I haven't narrowed the schools for fall visits yet," said Marcellus.
Expect a few college gameday visits for Jacky. He just doesn't know where to go just yet. Though Marcellus has offers from about 10 schools he keeps angling for a few more. Programs like Florida State and South Florida are monitoring young Jacky.
Perhaps a scintilating start to his senior season will garner those top tier offers. Cincinnati finished 2011 ranked in the Top 25. If not for a severe injury to Zach Collaros perhaps the Bearcats would have beaten the leading Mountaineers.
Still Cincinnati has to be concerned a distant second place to WV until they can convince Marcellus to visit.
"I think I will decide in February, but you never know when you take official visits," said Marcellus. "Something might click and you could decide right there."
