Like Clockwork, WVU Commit Nicco Marchiol Tears Up Against HS Competition



Another week, another strong showing from West Virginia four-star quarterback commit Nicco Marchiol and Hamilton High School in Chandler, Arizona. And Marchiol even made it for the WVU game against Texas Tech the next day.

Against Perry High School, Marchiol put on another show, completing 13-of-19 passes for 194 yards and four touchdowns. He added another score on the ground in an ultra-efficient night, throttling Perry 42-7 on the road. Through five games this season, he’s thrown for 1,093 yards and 16 touchdowns on 73-of-108 attempts (68% completion through the air) with just one interception. He’s also rushed for another two touchdowns on the ground.

For context, in eight games as a junior, Marchiol threw for 1,417 yards and 11 touchdowns while rushing 535 yards and five more scores.

In addition to a stellar senior season individually, Marchiol has led Hamilton to a Top 25 ranking nationally and a miraculous come-from-behind victory over national powerhouse Bishop Gorman High School on national television.

And on Saturday afternoon, he was in Morgantown for WVU’s game against Texas Tech. While it wasn’t the best result for the Mountaineers against the Red Raiders, perhaps Marchiol saw an opening as a true freshman next season.
