Georgetown’s second year, Mac McClung, told ESPN Jonathan Givony that he is signing up for the 2020 NBA draft.
McClung first gained national recognition when his high school highlights exploded on YouTube:
In his second season in Georgetown, McClung scored an average of 15.7 points and 1.4 steals per game. A foot injury in late January kept McClung off the lineup for almost a month. He returned for a game in late February, but played just eight minutes from the Hoyas bank.
The 6-foot-2 guard is known for its deep shooting range and highlight dunks. McClung’s shot is inconsistent, however, since he shot below 40% in Georgetown in each of his first two seasons. McClung’s defense also needs work.
Because of his size, McClung wants to be a point guard in the NBA. To make it as a lead guard, he has to work on his ball handling and playing style. With these question marks, McClung is seen as a route to be designed in the second round.
McClung stated that he is signing with an agent approved by the NBA / NCAA. In this way, he can keep his college eligibility while going through the preliminary design process.
