Although Troy McClain was fired by Donald Trump during the first season of the NBC reality show “The Apprentice,” that hasn’t stopped several universities and colleges from recruiting him to star on their campuses.
McClain, who doesn’t have a college degree, has been contacted by Boise State University, Columbia University and Albertson College of Idaho over the past six months. He’s also received offers from Hollywood, his manager, Ed Moore, said recently.
Moore said McClain met with a Boise State academic counselor last week, but hasn’t made a final decision. He needs to register by Dec. 2 to attend January classes.
During an appearance on CNN’s “Larry King Live,” Trump offered to send McClain to the college of his choice.
McClain, of Boise, has shot two TV pilots and is negotiating several other projects, Moore said.
