Mac McClung was considered one of the best, most talented players available in the transfer portal during this offseason and moments ago, he found his new home.
McClung, a 6’2 guard from Gate City, Virginia, averaged 13.1 points in 26.4 minutes for the Georgetown Hoyas as a freshman and was on his way to an incredible season last year before his a foot injury caused him to only play in 21 games.
West Virginia was considered an early favorite to land McClung due to his close friendships with current Mountaineers Jordan McCabe and Oscar Tshiebwe. In addition, McClung expressed his desire to “stay close to home” when he announced his decision to transfer from Georgetown. Although Morgantown is 6 and 1/2 hours from Gate City, it is far closer than almost all of his “final seven.”
McClung announced last week on his Instagram that his final seven schools were USC, Arkansas, Wake Forest, Auburn, Memphis, Texas Tech and BYU.
Now, McClung has made his decision on where he will finish his college career and it will be in the Big 12 conference at Texas Tech. McClung posted the following announcement on Twitter/Instagram moments ago:
