Cowboys Offered McDonald

The Cowboys continue to look to make inroads in the south concentrating on speed and athleticism in Oklahoma. The UW coaching staff has made several visits throughout the spring and summer including an offer to athlete prospect Adrian McDonald.

McDonald is an athlete grapping attention as a skilled prospect who plays under center for Eisenhower High School in Lawton, Oklahoma, but figures as a slot receiver or cornerback at the college level.

It will be interesting to see where he garners the most attention by recruiters as either an offensive skilled athlete or a secondary player in college.

The 5-10 and 170 pound athlete has the definite skills to play at the FBS level of football, while already receiving scholarship offers from Wyoming, New Mexico, North Texas, and Louisiana Tech.

"I've received offers and interest from colleges all over," said McDonald. "It's really early and I'm going to see how things play out over the summer and where the most interest comes."

McDonald's smaller stature will likely keep him from playing quarterback at a major college though because of his multi-skill set, he has the advantage of evaluation at several different positions, helping his stock with college programs like the Cowboys.

"The colleges recruiting me like my athleticism and speed, and versatility to play at different positions," said McDonald. "I'm really looking at where my best fit will be in college and the position I can play the best. I see my heart and work ethic as probably my best asset."

McDonald has offers from the Cowboys, New Mexico, North Texas, and Lousiana Tech.
