 Craig McDonald, Minnesota, Player News


  Auburn commit and Minnesota native Craig McDonald had several options when he entered the transfer portal after a successful season at Iowa State. McDonald fielded offers from Wisconsin, Boston College, Memphis, and Florida State, among others, before choosing to play for Bryan Harsin on the Plains. McDonald had 41 tackles and was tied for the team lead with two interceptions last season after redshirting for the 2020 season at Iowa State. He was a three-star recruit in the 2020 recruiting class. The 6'2" 190 pound safety has three years of eligibility as a redshirt freshman. He's a physical safety that could fill the void left by Smoke Monday departing to New Orleans Saints as an undrafted free agent. We caught up with McDonald via cellphone to discuss why he chose Auburn and his plans to improve as an athlete. - Birmingham News

  Auburn football landed its second transfer portal commitment of the past 10 days Saturday, as former Iowa State safety Craig McDonald announced via Twitter he'd be coming to the Plains next season. McDonald spent two seasons with the Cyclones, playing in four games in 2020 and registering a tackle. In 2021, he played in 13 games, logging 41 total tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss, a pass breakup and two interceptions. In a loss to Oklahoma last season, McDonald recorded 10 tackles and an interception, and also had six tackles and a pass breakup against Clemson in the Cheez-it Bowl. Listed a 6-foot-3, 210 pounds, McDonald entered the portal on April 30. Out of high school, the Minneapolis native chose the Cyclones over offers from Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin and Purdue. - Opelika-Auburn News

  Auburn isn't done adding to the 2022 recruiting class, specifically in the secondary. Iowa State's Craig McDonald became the seventh transfer to join the Tigers. He announced the move on Twitter while visiting the Plains. A former 3-star recruit, McDonald is a redshirt freshman and will have three years of eligibility. He's the sixth defensive back to join the Tigers either through the transfer portal or high school. Starting three games for the Cyclones last season, he was tied for the team lead with a pair of interceptions.

Coming out of Minnehaha (Minn.) Academy, McDonald was the country's 66th-best safety prospect, per 247Sports composite rankings. He redshirted in 2020 after appearing in four games. In 2021, while earning a spot on the All-Big 12 Academic Team, he recorded 41 tackles. "We watched some film and they want me to be even more physical," McDonald told Auburn Undercover's Jason Caldwell. "They are going to put me into even more positions to be successful. I'm really looking forward to that." - Birmingham News
