LOW KEY: Trent McMullan believes he is only a slim chance to be drafted.

FORMER national basketballer turned footballer Trent McMullan is not carrying high hopes into Friday’s AFL national draft.

The Wodonga teenager made the switch to Australian rules football at the start of 2015 and was picked up by the Murray Bushrangers.

Despite having his name mentioned in several draft talks, McMullan is giving himself little chance to sneak onto an AFL list.

McMullan has enrolled to study a sports science and business management degree at Deakin University in Geelong and is hoping to pursue an opportunity in the VFL.

“At this stage it’s probably between Geelong and Werribee to play VFL,” he said.

Even though he has committed to the move down south, McMullan hasn’t completely ruled out making an appearance for Wodonga in 2017.

“There might be a slight chance I come back for a couple of games, but I won’t be there full-time that’s for sure,” he added.
