Hawaii QB says he’ll be staying in school … Hawaii junior QB Cole McDonald, one of the most productive passers in college football, suggested last week that he has no plan — at least at this point — of leaving school and entering the 2020 draft. “I intend to stay in school and come back next year” McDonald said in response to a question whether the NCAA’s new rules allowing players to receive benefits from the use of their likeness would have any impact on his decision. The 6-4, 220-pound McDonald is currently third in the country with 2,800 passing yards, while completing over 65% of his passes, 25 resulting in touchdowns. Of course, McDonald can always change his mind between now and January 15th when underclassmen have to file paperwork with the NFL in order to be included in the upcoming draft. One thing that might influence his decision is a recent statement by Hawaii head coach Nick Rolovich that he wanted redshirt freshman Cheven Cordeiro to get more snaps going forward. Stay tuned!
