Mac McClung is the most sought-after player available in the college basketball transfer portal now and he will soon drop his top ten schools that he’s considering.
McClung, a 6’2 guard, is part Allen Iverson, part Jason “White Chocolate” Williams and was named to the Big East’s all-freshman team after averaging 13.1 points in 26.4 minutes for the Georgetown Hoyas. He 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 guard Jordan McCabe has his own podcast and his guest tonight is Mac McClung. The podcast can be found on Spotify now if you search “The Jordan McCabe Podcast.”
McClung, who has been friends with McCabe since high school, also played AAU basketball with Mountaineer forward Oscar Tshiebwe. McClung announced on his Instagram that he will release his top ten schools “soon”, but didn’t specify an exact date or time. However, him being friends with McCabe and Tshiebwe, as well as appearing on McCabe’s podcast, is certainly a good sign for Bob Huggins and West Virginia.
Following the season, McClung initially entered his name into the NBA pre-draft process and got a fair amount of attention from NBA scouts due to his incredible scoring and leaping ability. However, McClung decided to withdraw his name from the NBA and return to college with a different team.
McClung, who will apply for a waiver to be eligible immediately, told ESPN: “It was a number of different events that made me feel I had no choice but to transfer from Georgetown. I really wanted to stay, but things throughout my career made me realize that I couldn’t. I’m looking for a place I can call home. A place I can be a part of a family and help them succeed.”
West Virginia is just the right place for him. Take Me Home, Country Roads.
