Mac McClung is a skilled, agile combo guard that can shoot and score the basketball.  His shooting percentages have fluctuated over the years, and he struggled to make shots consistently at Georgetown, but he had a solid season this year as a junior at Texas Tech. 

McClung can put up a lot of points in a hurry, and he scored 76 points in a 3-game stretch in January against Texas, Baylor, and West Virginia.  He will need to improve his playmaking skills and be a little more consistent with his three-point shot, but he could be an intriguing option for NBA teams to consider in the second round range of the 2021 draft.
