COLUMBUS — Coveted defensive lineman Malik McDowell will sign with Michigan State, after all.

Against the public wishes of his parents, the five-star prospect from Southfield, Mich., selected the Spartans over Ohio State and Florida State in a ceremony at his high school today.

For the Buckeyes, the McDowell soap opera — fueled by his parents desire for him to leave behind the distractions of his home state — marked the only drama early on signing day. OSU is expected to sign a 22-member recruiting class ranked among the top five hauls nationally.
