St. Paul QB commits to UConn

Logan Marchi, who passed for nearly 3,000 yards and 38 touchdowns as a junior at St. Paul, becomes the first member of the Class of 2014 to commit to UConn.

Marchi announced his intentions on his personal Twitter page. It marks the third straight year that a top in-state quarterback prospect committed to UConn joining Casey Cochran, who will be a redshirt freshman, and incoming freshman Tim Boyle.

I've already heard the "how many quarterbacks do they need" refrain but the fact remains that coaches can't just ignore a position even if three quarterbacks were signed the year before. Nobody knows how Boyle, Richard Lagow and Kivon Taylor are going to develop at the college level. Having too many quality quarterbacks is a problem any program would like to have. I haven't seen Marchi play but the fact that fellow Northeast BCS programs were going after him is a pretty good indication of his potential as a prospect. It would surprise me if any more quarterbacks are brought in since there would be six quarterbacks on scholarship when Marchi is a freshman at UConn.

St. Paul opens the 2013 season with a game at Derby on September 13.
