"It was pretty cool," said the 6-foot-3, 200-pound signal caller. "I think they had over 50 recruits there. It was pretty packed. I loved the atmosphere of the game. I got to talk to Coach Borges, Coach Jackson, Coach Hecklinski before and after the game. They said they would come by and see me this week.
"I love the way the offense played. I think they put up 600-yards. But from an offensive standpoint they played great. I was very impressed."
While Malzone doesn't have an offer from the Maize & Blue, he has been building his case with a strong junior camping, where as a first time starter he led the Warriors to their third consecutive state championship. And the Michigan coaching staff has taken notice.
"I have been building a relationship with Coach Borges," Malzone said. "I have been moving forward with that. We keep talking to him. Maybe he'll see me throw one time. But Coach Hecklinski said himself, when they find out what bowl game they are in. it's just going to depend on the recruiting process and stuff and see how that goes. They are probably going to decide who they are going to offer soon."
Currently, Malzone has offers from Western Michigan, Toledo, Old Dominion and Bowling Green. However, he says he's hearing from many notable BCS programs and his considering visiting Cincinnati, Indiana, Pittsburgh, Maryland, Penn State, Michigan and Vanderbilt, among others. He said Penn State and Indiana are most likely going to earn a visit soon.
"I'm going to checking out colleges, taking some visits, maybe checking out some basketball games, some hockey games," Malzone said. "Just checking out some different places and see what happens with that."
