Brother Rice High School's strong-armed junior to-be Alex Malzone camped at Tennessee over the weekend, and while he admits it was a grueling few days, he still competed and showed the Vols what he could do.
"It went pretty well," the 6'2, 190-pound prospect said. "I was coming straight from Florida. We stopped that night at two in the morning, then woke up at 6:30 to try to get there. I was pretty tired coming off a long baseball tournament, but I did well."
Malzone admits he has done better at a couple of other camps, but he still felt it was a good starting point with him and Tennessee, who is well aware of his abilities.
"The quarterbacks knew who I was when we were warming up and stretching. I didn't do as well as I did at Michigan and Michigan State, but the coach that I've been talking to, Coach Stripling, I talked to him at end of the camp and he said stay in contact and send my first three games on film and highlights halfway through the year. He also said to do my best to try to come out for a game."
This weekend, Malzone will attend his last camp of the year, Ohio State'S Friday Night Lights and he has been in contact with the Buckeyes already.
"I've been talking to Coach Coombs a lot, he came to Rice during the spring evaluation period and I've talked to him ever since. I was going to try to go to a three-day camp June 13-15, but that got pushed aside because of baseball, so I wasn't able to go to that."
Malzone is also hearing from Iowa, Northwestern, Wisconsin, Toledo, Ball State, and others.
