Mac McClung has decided to transfer from Georgetown to Texas Tech over Wake Forest, Memphis, Auburn, BYU, USC and Arkansas. 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, Texas Tech made a strong push — and the Red Raiders’ pitch became even more apparent when starting guard Davide Moretti decided last weekend to hire an agent and pursue professional options in Europe.
McClung, a 6-2 guard, averaged 15.7 points and 2.4 assists in 21 games last season. Known for his athleticism and leaping ability, McClung improved his all-around game from his freshman to sophomore year, shooting 32.3% from 3-point range after making just 27.7% during his first season with the Hoyas.
