Malzone to Throw for Michigan

2015 Four-star quarterback Alex Malzone is looking to have a big throw day next week in front of Michigan and other big time programs. What's Michigan's interest at? Read Inside

2015 four-star quarterback Alex Malzone's time to shine -- is now.

The Bloomfield Hills (Mich.) Brother Rice star said six programs have setup a date to see him throw next Monday, April 28. The list of schools attending include Michigan, Penn State, Minnesota, Wake Forest, Cincinnati and North Carolina.

"There could be a couple offers that come after seeing me throw," Malzone said. "But a lot of the places I'm talking to, I've visited, got a good feel for things, got a good feel for their coaching staff. "

Malzone said Michigan offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier will be one of the coaches in attendance next Monday. He said there has been increased talks with Coach Nussmeier this past month, and hopes a strong preference could possibly earn him an offer from the Wolverines.

"I talked with Coach Nussmeier probably three times last week," Malzone said. "I know Coach Nussmeier called my old high school coach. He's told my coaches and myself that he is very interested and that he is looking forward to the 28th just as much as I am.

"(Nussmeier) said he's narrowed down his board. Every time we've talked, he said it's between three or five guys, and he's seen all those other guys throw."

Currently, Malzone has notable offers from Wake Forest, Pittsburg and most of the MAC. However, he knows what a strong performance in his throwing session can do more for his recruitment.

"I just want to show all the stuff I showed on film," Malzone said. "A lot of the coaches say they love my film. They love my highlights. I just want to show them I person and how the ball comes out my hand."

Malzone admits he has no leaders right now for his services. As far as a decision timeline, he says when he makes his college decision is based on if he earns more offers in the near future.

"I got a good feel for the colleges I like," Malzone said. "I'm still thinking maybe sometime in May. I don't know, if this recruiting thing blows up, if I get some more offers, then I'll have to visit some more colleges. Then I'll wait to summer."
