For the second time this week, a Michigan quarterback is leaving the program.

Alex Malzone is graduating early, and seeking to continue his career at another school.

He has two years of eligibility remaining, and will pursue a graduate transfer.

"It has been an awesome 3 years playing for the University of Michigan that I will cherish forever. It was a dream of mine to play for the University of Michigan and it’s been an honor to wear the winged helmet. I will be graduating in April and will become a graduate transfer with 2 years left to play," he wrote on Instagram.

Malzone was a member of Michigan's 2015 recruiting class, and played high school football at Bloomfield Hills Brother Rice. 

Wilton Speight announced his intentions to transfer out of Michigan on Sunday.
