RE: McClung, Kid has crazy ups.
Haven't seen him yet but I'm planning to go to the Arby's Classic tournament, Dec. 26 (Turesday). Gate City plays a team from Huntersville, NC at 7 PM. The teams that come from out of the area are usually pretty good so it might be a good match up.

I see in the Bristol paper this morning that Gate City's opponent, North Mecklenburg, won in 2014 and includes Vernon Maxwell's son and James Worthy's nephew.

I did not. Was told the place was "locked down" when I arrived about 5:30.

RE: McClung, Kid has crazy ups.
I got to see McClung in Gate City's final Arby's game yesterday. They beat a very good team to take 6th place. I'm not an expert like some of you, but I was impressed with his ball handling, shooting and leaping ability. A couple of impressive dunks and some very crafty getting thru the lane (and a lot of "traffic") to finish at the basket. My friend that went with me said he reminded him of Grayson Allen in his style of play. We both felt he would've been a good addition to our team.

McClung might end up wishing that he came to ETSU. In fact, it be a situation where we see him in a blue/gold uniform 2 years from now.

Why do you say that? Do you think he won't get any playing time at Georgetown?

RE: McClung, Kid has crazy ups.
Has he peaked?

Georgetown recruited him as a point guard, is that a role he can fill? Can he make the mental transition from shooting guard to point guard? Not sure the words point guard describe his play.

I wish him well and hope he is a gem for Georgetown. He might have actually fit better at Rutgers.

RE: McClung, Kid has crazy ups.
I hope he does well, but I believe that Georgetown plays pretty forward/center heavy game. And even though their starting point guard is a senior, they are currently 4 deep in that position with the next two in line being a freshman and sophomore. As a freshman, I am not sure he will get the playing time he expects, and he is making a massive jump in competition level.

I'm just not sure he is a great fit there.. And I think ETSU is a better basketball team right now with a playing style more suitable for his game. Who knows what will happen, to me it just looks like a situation where it is very possible he won't be happy and will be looking to transfer. That's not a criticism of his game.
