Former Georgetown goalkeeper Mac McClung has transferred to Texas Tech, the Hoyas ex-star announced on Wednesday. McClung chose the Red Raiders rather than a final group of contenders which included Auburn, Memphis, USC, BYU, Arkansas and Wake Forest.

McClung was one of the best sit-out transfers on the market after officially entering the portal and withdrawing from the NBA draft two weeks ago. He led the Hoyas last season by scoring and flying in a second breakout campaign where he averaged 15.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. He was one of the few positives for a disappointing Georgetown team before a foot injury derailed his season after just 21 games.

The timing of McClung’s engagement could not be more ideal for Texas Tech after losing Davide Moretti, who announced last week that he was pursuing a professional career abroad. Moretti took on a lot of the ball handling duties and was the team’s second best scorer last season.

It is not yet known whether McClung will be able to make his presence felt immediately for Tech, however. McClung will be a junior next season, which means he will be required by NCAA policy to sit down for the next season unless he is able to obtain a waiver. He stated that he intended to request the waiver in order to obtain immediate eligibility.

McClung is the third transfer player to join Texas Tech this off-season with Jamarius Burton of Wichita State and Marcus Santos-Silva of VCU, and joins a highly regarded incoming recruiting class that ranks ninth at 247Sports and is represented by the four-star prospect Nimari Burnett.
