Interest Coming In For McDonald

Underrated big man Trey McDonald put himself on the map this past summer. Now he's got a handful of offers and is beginning to get involved in the recruiting process.

Trey McDonald, a 2011 prospect, played his first summer with the Michigan Mustangs, and overall it was a success.

"It was fun playing with the Mustangs and it was a fun experience," McDonald said. "I think I did good, but I think I could have done better. This was my first summer with them and it was just a good experience."

McDonald, a 6-foot-8, 220-pound big man drew the eye of a number of Midwest college programs. Iowa, Oakland, Dayton, Central Michigan and Western Michigan have all offered, while Michigan, Michigan State and Alabama are showing interest.

"I'm still pretty much open right now," McDonald said. "I'll probably know before I play my senior year."

Thus far McDonald has taken a pair of unofficial visits – Iowa and Dayton. He visited Iowa three weeks ago and Dayton over the summer.

"It was good," he said of his trip to Iowa. "I like the coaching staff and the fans are cool and I think it's a good campus."

"Dayton was cool too," he added. "I really like the coaches and the players as well as the facilities and the campus."

McDonald, of Battle Creek (Mich.) Central, is currently rated as a three-star prospect.
