First, the 6-foot-5, 215-pound athlete from New Rochelle, N.Y., has to decide if he wants to primarily play basketball or football.
"That's what I'm going to do first and then I'm going to take it slow," McDermott said.
McDermott still has three finalists for his football services: Wisconsin and Syracuse have offered him as a tight end, while Rutgers would like him to play quarterback. All three of those schools will also let him play basketball, McDermott said.
"I hope I can make a decision by Wednesday," he said.
If no decision is made on national signing day, McDermott would have until April 1 to sign a letter of intent to play football, assuming that his suitors are willing to wait for him.
"I haven't talked to them about that," McDermott said.
He could also choose to just play basketball. He said he is considering Providence (scholarship offer), South Florida, Villanova and West Virginia for basketball-only interest.
