Andre McDonald's Reaction
"It's pretty hard," said Andre McDonald. "It was about two hours ago when I found out. I didn't even think anything would happen. I thought he would be here. I have been calling their coaches all night, but I haven't gotten an answer. I guess they are trying to figure out if they are going to be there."
"I am thinking a bit. I am thinking if new coaches come in if I will still have a scholarship. I am wondering if the same staff will be there. We just got a new staff this year at our high school. It's going to be pretty tough. I was connected with this staff."
The K-State coaching staff played a big role when McDonald made his decision.
"It was a big factor for me," he said. "All the coaches were so nice. They showed a lot of interest. I connected with coach Prince while I was there. I am going to spend my time with the staff. You have to enjoy the people you are with. I seemed to really like them."
The 6-foot-8, 280-pound prospect remains committed to K-State and does not plan visit any other schools.
"There are a few schools recruiting me, but nothing as big as Kansas State," McDonald said. "It's still a 100-percent commitment to them. They showed interest in me. I liked what I had seen when I went there. The campus is real nice. I don't plan on going anywhere."
