Texas Tech Lands Georgetown Transfer Mac McClung

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-West Regional-Gonzaga vs Texas Tech

Georgetown guard Mac McClung announced his commitment to Texas Tech on Wednesday.

McClung was considered the top transfer on the market and chose the Red Raiders over a Wake Forest, Memphis, Auburn, BYU, USC and Arkansas.

According to ESPN’s Jeff Borzello, “Wake Forest was considered the favorite when McClung left Georgetown, due to his relationship with Demon Deacons coach Steve Forbes, who gave McClung his first scholarship offer in high school when Forbes was at East Tennessee State.”

However, Tech may have been able to seal the deal when guard Davide Moretti announced he would be leaving the program to go play professionally in Italy.

McClung averaged 15.7 points and 2.4 assists in 21 games last season, while shooting 32.3% from 3-point range.

 

McClung is expected to request a waiver to play immediately next season. If he gets it, there will be competition in the backcourt with Kyler Edwards and Terrence Shannon returning, while big prospects like five-star guard Nimari Burnett and Micah Peavy head to Lubbock.

The Red Raiders also have UNLV transfer Joel Ntambwe, who is now eligible after he sat out last season, and VCU transfer Marcus Santos-Silva, who is expected to graduate and be able to play in 2020-21.
