Two new offers roll in for Malone

City College of San Francisco is off to a 7-0 start and one of the top performers on the defensive side of the ball this year is CB Nigel Malone (5-9, 185). Before the season, Malone was given First Team All-American honors and he's lived up to the hype pulling in three D-1 offers so far...

"I just got offered by Kansas State and New Mexico," Malone told JCFootball.com. "I already had my offer from Kentucky and I was supposed to visit them this past weekend, but they wanted my teammates Sua Tuala and Deshon Marman to come out with me and they just got their transcripts and tape so they postponed the trip.

"Kansas State just offered my teammate Allen Chapman so they want both of us to come out and we're trying to get that set up for after the season."

Malone greyshirted in 2008, saving a season of eligibility, and in 2009 he proved his worth by posting 38 tackles and four interceptions, one of which he took back 98 yards for a touchdown.

His pedigree is as a lock-down, cover-corner who thrives when playing one-on-one.

"We blitz a lot so that leaves us in bump-and-run a lot," Malone said. "We play some zone, but mainly we're a man-to-man type of a team.

"It puts pressure on you, but if you want to play at this level, you'd better be able to handle it."

This season, Malone has followed up his solid 2009 performance with 22 tackles and 3 interceptions and 6 passes defensed in seven games this season.

"I feel like I've played well, but I'm my own worst critic so I always think I can improve and play better," Malone noted.

As far as when he's available, Malone can sign in December and he will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.

We'll continue to keep track of Malone over the next couple months and we'll update news as it changes.
