Five-star defensive end Malik McDowell has still not officially made his college decision, but is hoping to do so before the end of March, according to Rivals.
McDowell, the top player in the state of Michigan, announced his commitment to Michigan State over Michigan, Ohio State and Florida State on Signing Day. He did not send in his letter of intent, however, as his mother did not approve of the choice.
Now, the family is reportedly considering taking unofficial visits to both Ohio State and Florida State in order to attempt to resolve the issue. McDowell's father also told Rivals Michigan is not out of the picture yet, either.
McDowell's mother has legal guardianship, and he would need her signature to send in his letter of intent. However, he can still attend the school without her approval, by simply signing a financial aid agreement and enrolling at the university without a letter of intent.
