Texas Tech’s Mcclung enters transfer portal, NBA draft process


Texas Tech junior guard Mac Mcclung intends to go through the NBA draft process while the team’s leading scorer from last season also has his name in the NCAA transfer portal.

The Georgetown transfer’s decision is the latest in the potential exodus of key players since coach Chris Beard took the job at Texas, his alma mater. Texas Tech assistant Mark Adams was promoted to take Beard’s place.

Mcclung and fellow junior guard Kyler Edwards are in the transfer portal. Sophomore Terrence Shannon Jr. plans to explore the NBA draft without hiring an agent, making him eligible to return to Texas Tech.

Mcclung led the Red Raiders in scoring in his only season, finishing eighth in the Big 12 at 15.5 points per game. He was fourth in conference games at 17.0 points per game. Mcclung spent the previous two seasons at Georgetown.
