Michael Dowell's scholarship offer list spans across the country.
However, he is not ready to make any major decisions.
"I'm still open and considering all my options," said the 6-foot-1, 190-pound Dowell. "But I hope to narrow it to five schools before June 1.
He gave a quick thought on each school.
Iowa State: "(Defensive backs) coach (D.K.) McDonald is a young guy and I like him," Dowell said. "A lot of the staff is also from Cleveland, so that catches my eye."
Maryland: "I visited right before the The Opening and and really liked the facilities and coaching staff. I was able to sit down and talk with (defensive coordinator) coach (Andy) Buh and he's a real genuine person. He's real nice and a cool guy."
Michigan State: "I like the program a lot and coach (Mike) Dantonio is also a real genuine guy. Both my brothers play and start there, too, so that also makes an impact."
Dowell hopes to make his commitment by the beginning of football season.
