Isaac McDonald emerged as a major college prospect during his junior season on the gridiron. Within a couple months after the season he had several major college offers. He decided to end the process recently when he made a commitment to Clemson.
"Like I always say, it's a great school first," McDonald said. "You to go school for the education. Football won't last forever. You never know when it'll be taken away. I thought Clemson had a great school academically to go with a real good football program."
McDonald, 6-foot-5 and 205 pounds, is excited about the type of season he believes the Tigers will have in 2012.
"I think they're gonna be real good," he said. "I'd like to see them win a national championship."
Despite the commitment a few other schools are still actively recruiting the talented junior.
"South Carolina, West Virginia, there's a few who still recruit me," he said. "If someone wants me to de-commit to go to their school, it won't happen."
According to McDonald, getting him to switch his pledge won't be an easy thing to do.
"A commitment is to be with your team," he said. "I don't think I'm gonna visit any other schools anymore."
In the meantime, McDonald has been busy working out and competing in 7on7 events.
"I've been working hard, getting ready for my senior season," he said. "I was at a 7on7 over the weekend and was getting my route running down right. Clemson's talking about outside linebacker and somewhat strong safety. I just love to hit and wanna get on the field early."
