In June, Malzone put his talents on display at Michigan's football camp, and while he didn't earn an offer on his visit, the Wolverine coaching staff told him they want him to stay in contact heading into his junior season.
"Coach (Al) Borges just said he wants to stay in contact," said Malzone, who stars for Birmingham (Mich.) Brother Rice. "He said I am on their radar. I still haven't talk with anyone since their camp. …I would definitely would love to go to (campus for) a game."
While Malzone doesn't have a visit setup yet, he said when he does come back to Ann Arbor he hopes to get a better "feel" for the campus.
"I just want to get a feel for it," Malzone said. "I would try to see if I could see myself going there in a couple years. I am sure I can. My older brother is actually going there in the fall. He just graduated. Michigan would definitely be a place I would to go."
Currently, Malzone has no offers on the table. However, he said Michigan State, Penn State and Ohio State have been in contact the most lately. He said he is hearing interest from most of the Big Ten and MAC schools. While he has yet to receive an offer, a big reason is his lack of experience on the field, as he was the backup most of his sophomore season. He will take over the starting role this season and said most schools want to see his game film after his first three games before an offer is extended.
"Michigan State, Ohio State, Toledo and Tennessee, said they all want to see my first three games on film," Malzone said. "They said they haven't really seen much cause I didn't play much last year. They just want to see how do this year and how I starting the full year.
"Yeah, I am pretty confident," said Malzone, on getting an offer after his third game. "That's pretty much what all these colleges are saying, they're saying the same stuff. I just feel like I know what I have to do out there. I feel like I am going to do it."
Malzone also stars one the baseball field, however, he said football is the most likely option right now at the next level.
"I am leaning towards football right now," Malzone said. "I am definitely getting more interest for football. I think that's where my heart is too. I am probably going to just go with football."
In the meantime, Malzone has an opportunity to lead Brother Rice to their third straight state championship in his first full year as a full-time starter.
"I feel I got to be a leader for the team. I feel like I am going to have to step up and do what I need to do to lead the offense. I think everything else will take place cause we have a lot of good players. I want to win the three-peat. So, I have good feeling that's what we are going to do."
