Alex Malzone announced this week that he will transfer from Michigan in April after he graduates early.

Malzone who was a member of the Brady Hoke/Jim Harbaugh 2015 Michigan recruiting class has appeared in one game during his three year career for the Wolverines.

Malzone said on his Twitter account “It has been an awesome 3 years playing for the University of Michigan that I will cherish forever.” He went on to say, “It was a dream of mine to play for the University of Michigan and it’s been an honor to wear the winged helmet. I will be graduating in April and will become a graduate transfer with 2 years left to play.”

He said he will be with the team for the bowl game but will not play for the Wolverines next season. Malzone stuck with the Wolverines as a backup quarterback for the past three seasons but wants to make his mark at a different school.

At Michigan Malzone has been an Academic All-Big Ten Honoree in 2016 and UM Academic Athletic Achievement Award recipient. He was also a 2016 Letter winner.

No word on where he will transfer to in April yet but check back with the Michigan Journal for any updates throughout the year.
