Duke and Florida are also involved in his recruitment, but according to McDonald neither has stepped up with a scholarship offer. While the Blue Devils and Gators want to see a little more out of McDonald, there are other schools that are clearly making him a priority.
"I've been hearing a lot from North Carolina," McDonald said. "They've been coming at me pretty hard. Ohio State, they've been coming after me. Georgetown is coming, too. I heard that Greg Monroe committed there."
The Hoyas have certainly made a splash on the recruiting trail lately with Monroe's commitment and they are using that as a selling point with McDonald.
"When you see other impact players and other highly touted players you can kind of use that in consideration and that plays a part," McDonald said.
Recently McDonald took a visit to Memphis for the midnight madness festivities. The Briarcrest (Tenn.) Christian standout is hoping to visit a few more campuses during the college season.
"We are playing games in a few different regions, so we are thinking if there's the opportunity that we might stop by a few places," he said. "Me and my dad were also thinking about seeing some games and going to a few different colleges and watching them play."
McDonald and his Briarcrest squad kick off their season on November 12th. The Saints will play a number of games out of state, including a game in the Marshall County (Ky.) Hoopfest.
