Metcalfe:

James McDonald, shortstop from Scottsdale Chaparral High School, already has decided he will play for Arizona State rather than sign with the Chicago White Sox.

McDonald was an 11th-round pick but, his father Jimmy McDonald said, has a “powerful desire” to be a Sun Devil.

Gonzales:

It’s rare that the Sox draft a high school middle infielder as high as the 11th round, but they’re making a serious effort to sign Chaparral (Ariz.) shortstop James McDonald. McDonald said that he’s not sure whether to start his professional career or fulfill a scholarship offer from Arizona State. “I’m weighing a few things right now,” McDonald said. McDonald recently graduated from the same school that produced Paul Konerko.

McDonald has a website at jamesmcdonaldaz.com. Here are videos of him hitting and fielding.

McDonald, a 6’0”/175 lbs. senior, went to the same high school Kenny Williams’ sons, Kyle and Terry, went.

Here are McDonald’s stats:

Year GP PA AB R H RBI 2B 3B HR BB K HBP AVG OBP SLG OPS SB SBA
2010 32 122 95 30 36 26 6 2 7 24 9 3 .379 .516 .705 1.221 8 9
