Marck takes a couple visits

Fairless Hills (Pa.) Pennsbury tight end Steve Marck continues to hold two offers. The 6-foot-2, 236-pounder recently took visits to a couple Big East schools including one that has offered him.
"I have offers from Syracuse and Buffalo. I just went to Syracuse on Friday for an unofficial," he said. "I liked it a lot there. I went up with my mom and got there around noon. I met with my recruiting coach and talked to Coach Robinson.
"I was able to tour the campus, facilities and attend a couple position meetings. Then I met for an hour with coach Robinson and hung out with the players at night."
How was Marck's meeting with Robinson?
"It was good," he said. "He's real down-to-earth. He seems like a good coach. He is defensive minded, but they brought in a new offensive coordinator and have a heavy tight end offense. That's a positive for me. I think they are headed in the right direction."
Marck also met with the players.
"It was good," he said. "I got to talk with Cody Catalina, Max Suter and Mike Mele. They were positive about things and I think the future is bright. They gave me that vibe since they've got a young team."
A week earlier Marck made his way to Connecticut for their spring game.
"That went well too," he said. "They are looking at me as a tight end and want to spread the field more. Before they offer, they want to see me at camp to check my downfield speed."
This week the Keystone State prospect plans to head down to Chapel Hill on Friday for the North Carolina Nike Camp.
"I would go to Penn State, but I want to compete with a different crowd down in the south," he said. "I'll probably take more visits after the contact period."
Marck is hearing from Wake Forest, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, North Carolina, Vanderbilt and Virginia as well.
He currently has no leaders, but did discuss what he wants in a school.
"I'm looking for a school with good academics," he said. "I know it might be a cliché. I want a good education since my chances for the NFL are slim to none. I'm not going to bank on that. I also don't want a school that has eight guys in front of me. I want to play eventually, sooner rather than later. Then, location is a bit of a factor too."
Marck is keeping busy this spring throwing the javelin and has placed in the district in the event.
