Bloomfield (Mich.) Brother Rice 2015 quarterback Alex Malzone threw in front of seven college programs on Monday in hopes adding another scholarship to his offer sheet.

Michigan, Penn State, Cincinnati, Wake Forest, Minnesota, Central Michigan and Eastern Michigan all came to see him throw. He already holds offers form Wake Forest, CMU and EMU.

And while no new offers were made, the four-star quarterback says he's heard nothing but positive feedback from the coaches who attended his morning throwing session.

"It worked out great," Malzone said. "I feel I did pretty well. I have been getting a lot of great feedback from all the coaches that were there. I am definitely pumped up about that."

One school that has been looking at Malzone throughout his recruitment is Michigan. Malzone camped at U-M last summer, and has been on multiple campus visits to Ann Arbor. U-M offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier was one of the notable coaches in attendance. And while no offer was made by the Wolverines, Malzone said Nussmeier came away "impressed" after his throwing session.

"My conversation with Coach Nuss went very well," Malzone said. "He's been all around the country seeing guys throw. I think he has one more, maybe two more on his list. He told everyone from the beginning he was going to see everyone throw. And then see what happens from there. And that's pretty much what he told me. He said he was very impressed.

"Coach (Fred) Jackson actually came to the school at the end of the day. He just wanted to let me know he talked with Coach Nuss. And that Coach Nuss said I did great job."

Now that Nussmeier has seen him throw, Malzone says he should know if Michigan is going to offer him in the next couple weeks.

"Will see what happens," Malzone said on a potential offer. "I know he saw a lot of great quarterbacks from around the country. I'm sure he going to offer someone within the next couple weeks. "

Malzone gave his feedback on the other schools in attendance and who might be his next potential offer.

"Wake Forest has already offered me and like me a lot. I have great relationship with them," Malzone said. "I talked with the Cincinnati (assistant coach), and I feel like that is coming. I am supposed to talk to Penn State (soon) and their quarterback coach, and see what they have to say. I am calling Minnesota sometime this week. I know on Friday, Vanderbilt and Toledo come to see me throw. And there is going to be five to 10 more colleges who will see me throw during this live period."

The live evaluation period runs through the end of May.
