ESPN No. 41 ranked high school senior point guard and Georgetown commit Mac McClung poured in 47 points to lead Gate City HS (VA) past Lee in a 96-43 blowout.
And many of the high-flying guard’s points came on spectacular dunks, including a sick reverse under the basket.
“Mac dunks it with ease. He’s in there and he’s in an awkward position and he goes up and reverse-dunks it. It just blows my mind how he does it,” Gate City coach Scott Vermillion told the Times News. “He jumps higher in a game than he does when we’re gauging him. His vertical is like 47 or something, but I swear he jumps 50-some inches [during games].”
“The kid just goes,” Vermillion added. “I’ve never seen anything like that.”
McClung’s future Georgetown coach, NBA great Patrick Ewing, was also at the game and was equally impressed with McClung’s performance.
“I love his heart. I love his tenacity. I just love everything about him,” said Ewing. “He’s strong, he’s a great finisher. In the Big East I think there are a lot of great players, but I think that’s something that he can become.”
The athletic 6-2 combo guard averaged a whopping 29 points, 5.5 assists, and 3 steals last season for Gate City, when he was named to the All-State 2A First Team.
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 in the fall.
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.”
