Read our scouting report of Malzone after the jump.
Scouting Report: Malzone is a three-star prospect and the 15th-ranked pro-style quarterback in the class of 2015. Don’t be fooled by his rankings, though. Malzone is a prospect that has a ton of potential and his recruitment is starting to pick up.
He is a pocket passer by trade, but does have the mobility to scramble and make plays with his feet when he has to. He makes quick decisions and handles pressure well. Throws a tight spiral and is a pretty accurate thrower.
Where he needs to get better is extending plays with his feet. He does not panic when he gets rushed off the snap, but he could benefit from learning to pick up a few yards here and there on his own instead of forcing throws that aren’t there.
Alex Malzone is a very good in-state quarterback prospect that the Wolverines would love to get their hands on, and he should only improve with his senior season approaching.
