Michigan Wolverines backup quarterback Alex Malzone took responsibility for a charge of disorderly conduct on Tuesday in Ann Arbor 15th District Court, according to court records. Malzone paid a fine of $175.

The 19-year-old got a ticket on April 26 at 10:40 PM ET and had an "altered driver license.".

The pro-style quarterback committed to Michigan on May 12, 2014, and is now in his sophomore year of college but is a redshirt freshman on the field. Malzone played for Birmingham Brother Rice during his high school career, throwing for 2,998 yards and 38 touchdowns with five interceptions as a senior.

Malzone will compete with John O'Korn, Wilton Speight and Shane Morris for the starting quarterback position, but Malzone has already fallen well behind the pack. It seems the real competition will be between O'Korn and Speight. With all the talent Michigan has coming in at the quarterback position in the next few years, this could hurt Malzone more than it would to most.

Malzone did not play for the Maize and Blue last season.
