Corey Malone-Hatcher, a 2017 four-star defensive lineman, has committed to the Michigan Wolverines.
Malone-Hatcher had offers to Michigan, Alabama, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Cincinnati, Columbia, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisville, Michigan State, Minnesota, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Penn State, Tennessee, UCLA, Virginia Tech, and Wisconsin. He was recruited to Michigan by Greg Mattison and Chris Partridge.
From St. Joseph High School in Saint Joseph, Michigan, Malone-Hatcher is currently ranked 247th in the Class of 2017 and 17th among all weak-side defensive ends, according to 247Sports composite rankings.
The junior is also listed at the sixth-best high school player in the state of Michigan behind Donovan Peoples-Jones, Ambry Thomas, JaRaymond Hall (Michigan), Josh Ross (Michigan) and Jaylen Kelly-Powell.
The 6-foot-3, 250-pound commit to Michigan had to pick between Michigan, Alabama, Ohio State, Tennessee, UCA, Notre Dame, Michigan State, Oklahoma, and Penn State on Thursday. He decided to stay in his home state to play for the Maize and Blue.
Even though he has committed to Michigan, Malone-Hatcher is expected to take all five of his official visits.
We'll have a film study of his skill set up shortly.
