Five-star defensive end Malik McDowell of Detroit, Mich. will choose between Ohio State, Michigan State, Florida State and Michigan shortly after 9:30 a.m.

McDowell is believed to be favoring Michigan State, but his mother has been vocal with her desire to see him go anywhere but East Lansing.

Is there a Meg in the group that is signing a LOI with a school? If not, I've lost interest...

I am both disgusted that news of an 18 yr old signing garners this much attention....and glued to the computer screen...Lord help us all...

I'm getting a black screen with a green bar across it, but I'm also attempting to watch on my iPhone. Non mobile?

It took a while to load, but it's finally up. I have no idea whom I am viewing.
---> empty chairs, Southfield H.S. gymnasium.

This would be so cool to hear the response of the crowd with all of the MSU and TTUN fans if he chose the Buckeyes.

Yeah, it takes awhile but it'll eventually show up.
Also, if anyone wants to comment, make a duplicate tab of this thing because you'll get that God-freaking-awful Michigan tourism video with the person stupid enough to get the state of Michigan tattooed on their arm...what a maroon.

The dad's hoody is lined with green. He know where his kid is going.

And then I told her...i'm no weatherman, but tonight's forecast is calling for several inches!

His dad is wearing green under the gray hoodie... foreshadowing?

Do they mean 9:30 central time?

He's late for his announcement.
I hope he's not late to practice.

my heart tells me OSU, but my gut tells me Meatchicken state.

11,000 people watching this currently..... better turn out than a Miami Hurricane home game.

100 would be a better turnout than a Miami game.

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

I hate to sound like the spurned lover, but this kid doesn't give me a good vibe. Not just talking about this announcement but the whole process + this announcement.

Meh, it's an important decision and his parents don't agree with him about what's best. If I were 18 and going through that I would probably hem and haw as well.

MSU got a good one, however OSU still had a great class.

Best of luck to him! It was going to be difficult getting him out of that state, especially when he seemed to have his heart set on MSU. Silver lining, though...he stays in B1G country and didn't head to FSU!

Well..... best of luck at MSU kid - look forward to seeing the Silverman rendering of Eze Elliott putting cleats in your face!  Go Bucks!

Well it seems as if the Darius Slade visit very much had to do with Malik's decision.  It's not a coincidence and I don't think they were planning on taking both.  No link necessary...it's Science.  

Some people think we’re the hunted.I don’t feel that way at all.We’re the hunter.Everybody wants an angry football team.Everybody wants a team on edge and a hungry team.If you’re a hunter,that usually equates to being hungry.

Watching that with no sound was strange.  I was hoping to see him grab a hat but the video blacked out.  Oh well.  I hope he'll learn to enjoy losing to us at least 4 times in the next 4 years.

Disappointing, but the kid clearly did not see himself as a Buckeye and we might be better off not having him, especially considering the circus here the past few days. Best of luck to him.

Anyone feeling slighted by his decision needs to realize that he is a kid and has done what is in his heart.    I wish him the best and hope he performs admirably in every game each year except one!
