ACC Lures McDonald to North Carolina

Just like last year the top player in the state went shopping in the ACC.

Last season Elliot Williams (St. George) cast his lot for the ACC when he chose Duke the top player in the Class of 2009 decides to go that route as weel choosing to ride down tobacco road and attend the University of North Carolina.

McDonald, who was named Mr. Basketball last season in DII, ended his recruitment after a weekend visit to the baby blue campus.

McDonald chose the Tarheels over Tennessee, Memphis and numerous others. Many more accolades and exciting things are in store for McDonald as he prepares for the NBPA Players Camp later this month and the always grueling month of July.

The searing heat of the summer months will certainly subside with the commitment and end of the hardest part of the journey.

His choosing of the Tarheels marks the second time in the past five years the top player in the state has matriculated to the Dean Dome. 2006 top dog Branden Wright (Brentwood Academy) also played his lone season of college ball with the Heels before bolting for the pros.
