Trey McDonald was the second prospect from Michigan to drop by DePaul's Lincoln Park campus for an unofficial visit in the last week. On Wednesday, it was Amir Williams from Detroit, who just happens to be one of McDonald's teammates on Michigan-based AAU team The Family.
McDonald and his family enjoyed their weekend visit to Chicago.
"It was a really nice visit," said Trey. "It was a good experience seeing the facilities. They showed me around campus."
McDonald is a 6-9, 209 lb. forward/center prospect from Battle Creek Central High School. He boasts a seven foot wingspan which makes him one of the more sought after big men in the class of 2011. Trey is ranked as the 20th best center prospect by Scout.com.
Purnell and his staff talked with McDonald this weekend about how he would fit into the Blue Demons' high-octane style of play.
"They talked about me being explosive and using my body," said Trey. "I'm a mobile guy."
McDonald appears to have all the tools he needs to succeed at the next level, although Trey does see some room for improvement in his game.
"Probably my strength and conditioning," said McDonald.
DePaul was the second unofficial visit that McDonald has taken this month to a Big East school.
"I visited Marquette two weeks ago, the coaching staff and everything was fine," Trey said.
So what does Trey McDonald have planned next in his decision-making process? He's planning on taking official visits to Wake Forest and West Virginia in September.
