Bullough not surprised by McDowell decision

From Staff Reports

TRAVERSE CITY — Southfield’s Malik McDowell, one of the state’s top football recruits put a bow on Michigan State’s recruiting class when he committed to the Spartans over Michigan, Ohio State and Florida State.

The commitment ended a long and speculative recruitment for McDowell, a defensive lineman who was coveted by nearly every school in the nation.

St. Francis’s Byron Bullough, who joined McDowell as part of State’s new class, wasn’t surprised by the decision, which wasn’t announced until early Wednesday.

“I had a feeling. The press had a feeling as well. He told a few of our guys that he really wanted to come to Michigan State,” said Bullough. “We pretty much had an idea he was coming.”

Bullough said he can’t wait to get on the field with McDowell, ranked by some recruiting analysts among the best defensive ends nationally.

“Malik, he’s a great guy. He’s obviously a force on the field,” said Bullough. “That just adds to our great class.”

McDowell played this past season with Southfield after three years at Detroit Loyola.
