Georgetown transfer Mac McClung named his top seven schools via Twitter on Wednesday and the Red Raiders made the cut.
Joining Texas Tech on the list is Arkansas, Auburn, BYU, Memphis, USC and Wake Forest.
The 6-foot-2 combo guard averaged 15.7 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.4 steals per game while shooting 39.4% from the field and 80.2% from the free throw line as a sophomore last season for the Hoyas. As a freshman the year prior, McClung averaged 13.1 points, 2.6 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 0.8 steals a contest while shooting 39.2% and 79.8 from the field and free throw line, respectively.
A skilled shot creator with an explosive vertical, McClung is known for producing entertaining highlights on a regular basis. According to the 247Sports Composite, McClung was a three-star recruit, rated as the No. 245 overall prospect in the nation, No. 23 combo guard in the country and No. 11 player in Virginia coming out Gate City High School in 2018.
McClung has two seasons of eligibility remaining and will have to sit for a season to satisfy NCAA transfer requirements unless he is granted a waiver.
Following last season McClung tested NBA waters before withdrawing from the 2020 NBA Draft and announcing his intention to transfer earlier this month. There was no shortage of suitors before McClung announced his top seven schools with this gif edit of the combo guard in each team’s uniform. McClung’s post prompted a flurry of responses from all the fan bases, including Texas Tech which had some recent former greats, plus current players and incoming recruits chime in on why he should join the Red Raiders.
