Summer 2023 Evaluation

McDonald vaults into the top 10 after a summer where he dominated everywhere he went. He collected All-Star honors at Maverik Showtime and Main Stage and earned Defensive MVP honors at One Percent. He’s the best cover LSM in the class by a wide margin. McDonald can bounce back and forth between both positions rather effortlessly, but his speed and athleticism make him a perfect fit to get up and down the field in college.

McDonald doesn’t have elite size at 5-11, 160 pounds, yet his versatility, footwork, tenacity, accurate checks and exceptional stick skills make him a unique prospect. He was absolutely lights-out at the NLF National Championships, scoring in both the semifinals and title game.

“He’s a guy where you could put him on the wing and then have him come down to cover the smaller, quicker guys,” said a defensive coordinator from a top-10 school.

Earlier this summer, McDonald dropped a top four, though that’s always subject to change.

Spring 2023 Evaluation

It’s a testament to just how good St. Anthony’s was that the Friars could afford to have McDonald play JV all year long. St. Anthony’s upperclassman-heavy defense meant that there was no room for an elite sophomore. First-world problems and what not.

As you might imagine, a five-star prospect going against JV competition was a little lopsided. The 6-foot, 150-pounder is a versatile chess piece that can play both up top and down low. He has excellent footwork and a terrific stick. The last time we saw McDonald against his graduation year, he was earning NLF at IMG tournament MVP honors. He throws timely checks and knows when to be opportunistic. Team 91 Shock coach Jimmy Mulé says that McDonald compares favorably to All-Ivy LSM and fellow 91 / St. Anthony’s product Greg Campisi (Harvard), if that gives you any indication of what kind of prospect McDonald is.
