PROVO, Utah – Georgetown transfer guard Mac McClung has released his top seven schools and BYU made the cut.

One of the most sought-after undergrad transfers in college basketball, McClung had north of 40 schools contact him when he withdrew his name from the NBA Draft process and entered the transfer portal earlier this month.

Along with BYU, McClung trimmed down his final seven which includes Texas Tech, Auburn, Memphis, USC, Arkansas, and Wake Forest.

A 6-foot-2 guard out of Gate City, Virginia, Mac McClung played two seasons for the Hoyas. McClung will need to sit out this upcoming season due to NCAA transfer rules before completing his two years of collegiate eligibility.

In his two years playing for Patrick Ewing and Georgetown, McClung averaged 14.2 points, 2.2 assists, and had a 45.1 percent effective field goal percentage per game.

Last season, McClung played in 21 games for Hoyas and he battled eye and foot injuries.

BYU has been one of the most heavily-involved programs in the transfer market this off-season. The Cougars landed 7-foot-3 Purdue grad transfer Matt Haarms last month and have been in contact with handfuls of other players.

McClung is an internet sensation for his human highlight-reel dunks and a 47-inch vertical. On Instagram, McClung boasts over 724,000 followers in large part because of his fame he garnered in high school.

McClung has not set a date on when he will trim down his list again or announce when he will sign with a school. BYU coaches have utilized zoom calls to showcase facilities and give virtual tours of the campus with in-person recruiting still suspended amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
