That shouldn't play any factor in recruiting a kid, if he isn't good enough to play his fans are going to get mad and stop coming if he doesn't play.

Him attracting fans is just an intangible. He would play well if gym full or empty. I saw Forbes at several GC games scouting/recruiting him so no secret he wanted him.
I am aware Forbes wanted him/knew he wasn't going to get him, some seem to think he is overrated and will never give him any credit.

Agree. So far he keeps disproving his doubters.

Guys Mac Mcclung isn't doing great, definitely wouldn't improve our team in any noticeable way THIS YEAR. I mean look at his stats, 27% from 3, 39% from the floor, only 2 assists per game. Really i think he is interchangeable with any of our guards, besides Good or Williamson, both of whom are better.

No need to shoot smoke up the kids Ass calling him great when he chose to not be a local legend and instead went to Georgetown of all places.

Yeah how dare he push himself and go play at higher level and get a better education at Georgetown instead of being a big fish in a small pond? Local legend, lmao.

and ask Ewing if he wants to swap McClung for Good or Williamson, hell he wouldn't do a two for one. Geez.

If teams can find McClung in BFE Gate City they could have found Good in Johnson City or Williamson in Winston-Salem, <Tobbaco Road

He was just named Freshman of the Week in Big East (2nd time) and is leading freshman scoring in the Big East at 13.6.
Maybe not great but pretty good.

Of course, a few people were dumping on Good when picked Appy State at first, but that is okay, we got the better player in the deal Jason Williams. (according to them)

I can go back and pull some posts if you wish.

Hell I was a leery of him because I kept hearing how short he was and I was the guy who started the Good thread back in the day.

People were saying Bartow wanted someone bigger.

I swear some of our fans can be like they got spurned by their crush so that have ot insult them.

A local physician who played D1 raves about McClung. I’ve known the kid since he was 5 years old and I’m telling you he is a baller. To say he would not have improved Bucs is asinine.

Par for the course on this board you used to have two camps on extreme ends,
Side one George Pitt should have been coach and Science Hill could have beaten ETSU
(very small on this board and mostly gone now) on the other side, no player east of Knoxville or south of Roanoke is good enough to play for the Bucs. But if a player is actually good and ETSU shows interest and he goes somewhere else, well he was a bum anyway.

Sounds about right. McClung is generational (local) talent and would have been nice to see him play here. With 31 D1 offers the writing was on the wall.
