After missing his junior season, Emareyon McDonald is looking towards a big senior year. Following a highly impressive sophomore season at Red River High School, McDonald made the move to Scotlandville High School in Baton Rouge, one of the premier programs in Louisiana. Due to the transfer, the 6’1” point guard had to sit out last year. 

“It had some bad things and good things sitting out. I learned the new system watching the guys playing seeing them taught me a lot and I had to focus on the classroom,” McDonald commented on how his junior year went while not suiting up. 

Even while missing out on his junior high school season, McDonald still has plenty of college coaches after him. The senior currently holds an offer list which includes Coastal Carolina, Georgetown, Grambling State, Hinds College, Northwestern State, Southern University, and UAB. As well, he mentioned Alabama State, Arizona State, Texas A&M, Wichita State, and others that have all been recruiting him. 

With all of his scholarship offers, McDonald is taking his time with his recruitment as he is looking towards the high school season to make a commitment. “I’m looking for a school that will let me play my game and I fit the system and treat me like family,” he mentioned on what he is looking for in his future college program. 

The 6’1” point guard stands out the most with his shooting ability. McDonald is a skilled shooter from the perimeter in addition to being a talented distributor. Before the sharpshooter heads off to college next year, he has his eyes set on winning the Gatorade Player of the Year honors.
