Wolverines Keep Close Eye on Malzone

Brother Rice (Mich.) class of 2015 quarterback Alex Malzone visited Michigan yesterday and got good feedback from offensive coordinator Al Borges.

Michigan hosted one of the top juniors in their home state on Saturday as Brother Rice quarterback Alex Malzone made his way to Michigan Stadium.

Malzone camped in Ann Arbor over the summer, but this was his first chance to make it in as a visitor this year.

"It went great," he said. "I loved the visit."

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Malzone had a good sophomore season, playing a key role behind senior Cheyne Lacanaria, including throwing two touchdowns in the state title game, a win over Muskegon.

This season, he inherited the full-time starting spot, and has not disappointed, leading the Warriors to an undefeated record while engineering several, exciting, last minute, game winning drives.

The Wolverines have taken note of this, and will look to see it for themselves in person.

"Coach Borges said I'm definitely on their radar and that I'm having a great year. He wants to see me throw live, so I think they're going to try to come to the Catholic League Championship Game on October 26th since it's their bye week."

Malzone has offers from Western Michigan, Bowling Green, Old Dominion and Toledo. He has additional interest from Michigan State, Penn State, Tennessee, Ohio State and others.
