Here is the August 18 edition of Jim S' top rising offensive seniors in Michigan.
Like Father, Like Son.
"Coach Turner offered me on Sunday and I jumped on it. Illinois runs in my family. My father (Phil McDonald) played football at Illinois and was a center.
"My mother is also an Illinois graduate. Academics were a huge factor in my decision. I'm going to major in engineering and Illinois has one of the best schools in the country for my intended major.
"The Parade All-American, Martin O'Donnell was my host. I got along great with the players and Illinois has a very good (coaching) staff."
McDonald, a 6-foot-5, 260-pounder from Holland (MI) West Ottawa is a three-year varsity starter.
Ryan was an honorable mention all-state selection. He chose Illinois over Toledo, Western, Central and Eastern Michigan.
