Malone-Hatcher brings early end to playing career
Written by Matt Pargoff   


Incoming freshmen Corey Malone-Hatcher’s college football playing career has ended before it ever got started. The former four-star defensive end out of St. Joseph, Mich. announced on Tuesday that his struggle in recovering from a torn Achilles tendon has forced him to give up on playing the sport.

Tearing the tendon more than a year and half ago, he reported on Twitter that he was several months behind schedule in making a recovery, resulting in the decision to hang up his cleats.

Malone-Hatcher will remain on scholarship at Michigan without counting against the Wolverines’ 85-scholarship limit.

Malone-Hatcher was one of five potential defensive ends to sign with Michigan in February, along with Luiji Vilain, Donovan Jeter, Deron Irving-Bey and Kwity Paye. Jeter is starting out at strong side end and Irvin-Bey could play at that spot or bump inside to defensive tackle, while Vilain and Paye are both slated for the weak side end position.
