Georgetown leading scorer Mac McClung's name officially is in the NCAA transfer portal, a day after reports emerged he'd withdraw from the 2020 NBA Draft and leave the Hoyas.
McClung led Georgetown with 15.7 points per game last season but missed 11 games with a foot injury. Georgetown was also hit by a wave of in-season transfers, including point guard James Akinjo, who left midseason for Arizona.
McClung said he plans to file a waiver with the NCAA for immediate eligibility. If the waiver is denied, McClung would sit out a year and return in 2021 with two years of eligibility remaining.
Coming out of high school, McClung first gave a commitment to Rutgers and had nearly 30 offers. 247Sports reported that a number of schools have contacted McClung about a potential transfer: Florida, Auburn, Texas A&M, Arkansas, Southern California, BYU, Wake Forest, Tennessee, Gonzaga, Utah, Arizona State, Oklahoma State and Georgia.
