|Malik McDowell and his parents apparently have different views on where he should attend school.|
"We don't want him at MSU," Malik's mother, Joya Crowe, said Monday night, and she gave multiple reasons.
"Something happened; I don't want to put it out there what it was," she said of her son's recent official visit, "but I had a bad experience at MSU."
Asked to elaborate, she said: "It was something on my end, I don't want to get into specifics."
Crowe said she and Malik's father, Greg McDowell, also fear "too much social life" at MSU.
"I want him to get a good education," Crowe said. "Not that he can't get a good education at MSU. But he also wants to be a first-round pick after college. Nothing is guaranteed, but I don't think their defensive line coach has the background for that."
