ESPN No. 40 ranked high school senior point guard Mac McClung has committed to Georgetown.
The athletic 6-2 combo guard averaged a whopping 29 points, 5.5 assists, and 3 steals last season for Gate City HS (VA), when he was named to the All-State 2A First Team.
“I’ve decided to further my career at Georgetown university!” McClung said via Twitter
McClung, who also ran with Team Loaded VA on the Adidas Circuit this summer, had previously committed to Rutgers before pulling out of the school earlier this month.
“I would like to thank the Rutgers coaching staff for all the opportunities they have given me, but after careful consideration I have decided to reopen my recruitment,” McClung said at the time via Twitter.
Fansided’s Lukas Harkins loves McClung’s explosive game.
“McClung is an elite athlete who can create for others as well as sky for highlight dunks,” wrote Harkins.
Scout’s Brian Snow thinks McClung is a great fit for Georgetown.
“McClung is someone who is comfortable with the ball in his hands or off the ball as a scorer,” wrote Snow. “Given the lack of depth that the Hoyas have in the backcourt, McClung should be able to get significant minutes right away when he gets to the school.”
Hoyas coach Patrick Ewing beat out the likes of Seton Hall and Boston College to land McClung.
At Georgetown, McClung will join fellow 2018 recruits No. 98 Josh LeBlanc and No. 10 C Grayson Carter.
