Many of us were holding on to high hopes that Malik McDowell would choose UM but given this latest update from 247, it doesn't seem likely. Quote from McDowell's father traced back to a conversation with Wiltfong that is currently floating around Twitter reads "I want him out of Michigan. I don't care if that's Ohio State or Florida State".
It looks like M is out. Many believed our hopes were riding on his parent's affinity for Michigan even though Malik preferred MSU. Now it looks like his parents are urging him out of state altogether, thus crushing M's chances. Good luck to him with whatever school he chooses.
