Marcus Smart isn’t the only collegian attending the U.S. Men’s National team minicamp in Las Vegas this week.
Two-time all-american Doug McDermott of Creighton will be joining him there as well, according to a report from Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com.
Now would be a good time to mention that McDermott is walking on to the Bluejay team this season after Grant Gibbs received a sixth-year of eligibility. So not only will Creighton have a two-time all-american, a favorite to be named preseason National Player of the Year and a guy who averaged 23.2 points and 7.2 boards walking on next season, they’ll have a college player that spent the summer working out with our country’s senior national team.
Greatest walk-on ever?
Greatest walk-on ever.
