He seems to have a lot of international experience, and Wayne Tinkle thinks he may be able to help this year. "Jack is a 6-5, athletic wing who can really shoot the ball, and I think that once he gets his feet wet he might be able to help us as a freshman," Tinkle said. "He has a ton of international experience, so he will add great maturity to our team even though he is a true freshman.

It looks like this is a verbal commitment right now. He put up some big point totals in his senior year, and appears to have a real ability to get to the free throw line. Here is a scouting report on him:
Anthony Johnson: 6’3” Small Forward, Decatur Central H.S. (2013) This was my first look at Johnson in a while, and I could not have been more impressed. He is simply an all-around scorer. He handles the ball very well and can create his own shot off the dribble. Anthony was very effective going to the rim, but also is a good mid-range shooter. He does a good job of getting to the foul line too, where he was 9/9 on the night. At the next level he can play either the 2 or 3 spots. I think Anthony is one of the best “sleepers” in Indiana. A good Division II or low-major prospect.

McDonald is a 6'4'' guard from Lake Oswego High School in Oregon. It looks like he averaged nine points per game for a very good team there. I am not able to find too much more information on him right now.
