    He's taller and rangier than his older brother, Darnell, and stronger than their oldest brother, former Yankees farmhand Donzell. One scout compared his build to that of former Rockies slugger Ellis Burks. McDonald has signed a football scholarship with Idaho State, which doesn't have baseball, but he's indicated more interest in baseball this spring than before. His athleticism, average arm strength and raw power have attracted crosscheckers to the area to check him out, meaning he could go inside the first 10 rounds. More likely, he'll be taken as a draft-and-follow by a team that steers him to junior college to have more time to evaluate him.
