The former Wolverines' quarterback has announced his transfer destination.

Michigan quarterback Alex Malzone announced in late November that he'd be transferring out of the Wolverines' program. Today, he announced his transfer destination.

Malzone, a third-year quarterback, is transferring to Miami (Ohio). The former top recruit is pursuing a graduate transfer.

"Excited to announce that I’ll be playing at Miami Ohio University the next two years while pursuing a master’s degree. Beyond pumped to join Coach Martin and this team. Go Redhawks," he wrote on Instagram.

Malzone was one of the top quarterback recruits in the country coming out of high school. He only appeared in one game during his career with the Wolverines, though.

"It has been an awesome 3 years playing for the University of Michigan that I will cherish forever," Malzone wrote at the time of his transfer. "It was a dream of mine to play for the University of Michigan and it’s been an honor to wear the winged helmet. I will be graduating in April and will become a graduate transfer with 2 years left to play."

The 6-foot-2, 228-pound quarterback is a Michigan native. He was ranked the No. 14 pro-style QB in the 2015 class by 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

Malzone chose the Wolverines over Wake Forest, Penn State and Pittsburgh, among other programs. He had offers from more than 10 programs.
