McDonald has visited Wake Forest and DePaul previously and is hoping to visit Minnesota, his high school coach told the website. He plans to sign in November.

The coach, Greg Williams, said Ohio State coach Thad Matta and two assistants recently visited the school to scout McDonald and set up the visit.

McDonald Drawing Lofty Comparison......................His high school coach compares his style of play to Tim Duncan, not flashy, just sound. Viewed as a late bloomer and is good friends with another tOSU target, Amir Williams. UConn, West Virginia and Wake recently offered.

Trey McDonald will be a Buckeye
Published: Tuesday, October 19, 2010, 3:47 PM Updated: Tuesday, October 19, 2010, 3:56

His junior year scoring average did not reach double digits. He won't wow you with above-the-rim athleticism. But steadily improving Trey McDonald will be playing in the Big Ten. The 6-foot-9 Battle Creek Central senior verbally committed to Ohio State, choosing the Buckeyes over offers from Wake Forest, Marquette, Oakland and DePaul.

BCC's Trey McDonald headed to Ohio State

Battle Creek Central basketball standout Trey McDonald has made his choice -deciding to give a verbal commitment to play for Ohio State University.
McDonald, the 6-foot-9 senior center for the Bearcats, had offers from several major college basketball programs, but spent most of Monday afternoon calling those coaches to tell them he was no longer available.
"He's calling all those other coaches right now to tell them, thanks for recruiting him, but he's going to Ohio State," said Battle Creek Central coach Greg Williams. "He's going to be a Buckeye."
McDonald said Ohio State is a good fit from several standpoints.
"I liked the coaches and the players, it seemed like a good fit for me," McDonald said. "The distance is good for me too, playing in the Big Ten. And they got the approval from my parents."
In recent weeks, McDonald had narrowed his list to five schools - Wake Forest, DePaul, Marquette and Oakland University, as well as Ohio State.
McDonald had made several official visits in the past few weeks, going to Ohio State and West Virginia two weekends ago and attending Midnight Madness at Marquette last weekend. Picking Ohio State allows McDonald to concentrate on his upcoming senior season without having to deal with recruiting.
"It feels good to have finally made the decision. Takes the pressure off some and now I can enjoy my senior year," McDonald said.
Williams agreed that the Ohio State uniform will look good on McDonald.
"He has a really close family and the Big Ten really fits him for that reason. They can see him play, don't have to travel too far," Williams said. "He has a skill set that really fits the Big Ten, he's got that Big Ten body.
"Ohio State likes his versatility. They want guys who can shoot it from outside, but also go in and rebound and score inside, too. That's what Trey gives them."
McDonald is the second BCC big man to go to a Division I school in the last several years as Jason Washburn went to Utah two years ago.
During his junior season, McDonald was limited by injuries, but still finished with All-City and all-league honors leading BCC in scoring and rebounding at 9.8 point per game, 6.4 rebounds and had 1.6 blocks a game.
McDonald had an eventful summer, added some weight to his 6-9 frame, and opened a lot of eyes at various all-star basketball camps. When the summer was over he had become one of the more highly-recruited big men in the Midwest.
"You are going to see his numbers go up considerably. He is going to have a big year. He played very well over the summer at different camps. It just seems like the light came on for him. He just got after it and decided he wanted to be good at this," Williams said. "His work ethic is off the charts now. That's what attracted a lot of teams - how hard he works."

BCC nets first victory of season
Aaron D. Harris The Enquirer December 28, 2010

One of Battle Creek's most storied sports traditions was renewed on Monday when the Chuck Turner Holiday Basketball Classic kicked off at the Battle Creek Central Field House.
The nightcap of the tournament's first day featured Battle Creek Central taking on non-conference rival Lansing Everett. In a sloppy defensive game where both teams failed to make easy baskets close to the hoop early, it was the Bearcats who prevailed with a 70-58 victory to get their first win of the season.
Trey McDonald struggled early in the first quarter, but he eventually got it going when his first three scores were on dunks. He finished with 22 points for the Bearcats (1-3).
