McDowell keeps recruiting on down low 

September, 5, 2012
Defensive end Malik McDowell (Detroit/Loyola) has been a relatively quiet recruit. That’s not a good thing for the fans, because the 2014 prospect happens to be one of the biggest in-state recruits.

His lack of interaction with the media has left some Michigan fans wondering where the Wolverines stand, and when he might make a decision.

Tom Hauck/ESPNHS2014 DE Malik McDowell says he has pushed back his timetable for a decision.
“I don’t call any coaches or anything. Nothing has died down [with Michigan], people just make it sound like that with the clothes I wear,” he said. “I wear Michigan State shorts and they say I’m going to Michigan State, or I wear Michigan shorts and I’m going to Michigan. I really do like Michigan, nothing has changed with them.”
