Texas Tech goalie Mac McClung announced on Sunday that he plans to enter the transfer portal while going through the NBA draft process.
“Although things have changed, my love and appreciation for you guys remains the same,” McClung written on twitter. “Lubbock is a very special place and I thank everyone for allowing me to be a part of it. My main goal now is to prepare for the [upcoming] Draft of the NBA, while going through this process, I will be in the transfer portal. “
A 6-foot-2 goaltender from Virginia, McClung spent the last season at Texas Tech after being transferred from Georgetown last spring. He averaged 15.5 points per game for the Red Raiders, shooting a career-high 41.9% from the field and 34.3% from 3 points. McClung has had 10 games of 20 or more points, including a 30-point effort in a loss to West Virginia in late January.
McClung played two seasons at Georgetown, averaging 15.7 points and 2.4 assists in sophomore and 13.1 points and 2.0 assists in freshman.
Texas Tech coach Chris Beard left to replace Shaka Smart in Texas last month, with the Red Raiders in turn promoting assistant coach Mark Adams to succeed Beard. Since the change of coach, starting goalie Kyler Edwards and first-year winger Micah Peavy have also entered their names on the transfer portal.
Known for his jumping ability out of high school, McClung improved his all-around attacking game during his three years at the college level. He is not, however, ranked in ESPN’s Top 100 for the NBA Draft.
