Chippewas would love to add Trey McDonald to 2011 class

If you ask Battle Creek Central big man Trey McDonald how many scholarship offers he has, make sure you have some time on your hands. In no particular order, the following schools have extended offers to the 6-foot-9 and 230 pound McDonald: Wake Forrest, West Virginia, Iowa, Arkansas, DePaul, Marquette, Indiana, Central Michigan, Western Michigan, Oakland, Purdue, Dayton, Temple, South Florida, and Miami (FL).

Over his high school career and summers on the AAU circuit playing for the Michigan Mustangs, Mcdonald has proven to be arguably the top big man in the state and is an impressive combination of size and athleticism. He has solid hands, displays a solid array of post moves, and has the ability to get out on the floor and run.

"I think that's the best part of my game," said McDonald. "Running the floor and being active and I continue to work out and improve my game. I've been working the most of my defense and blocking shots, and also my rebounding."

McDonald hasn't been up to Mount Pleasant yet but would like to.

"I would like to get up there soon since I haven't been up there yet, but I definitely want to get up and see CMU."

CMU assistant coach Darren Kohne has been the coach handling most of Trey's recruitment for CMU and the two have developed a solid relationship ever since the Chippewas became arguably the first program to start recruiting the big man.

"I think he's a real good coach, and a nice guy," added McDonald.

Despite his relationship with the CMU program, McDonald has numerous offers to mull over and insists there are no leaders at this point.

"I am still open now yes," added McDonald. "I hope to narrow my choices down in the next few months and then sit down with my family and make the best choice for me around November. I want to go to a winning program, and of course have a great relationship with the coaches. I'm just going to look for the best fit for myself and my family."
