    Texas Tech guard Mac McClung has received a waiver from the NCAA and is immediately eligible to play for Texas Tech this season, he announced Friday via Twitter.

    The 6-foot-2 guard from Virginia, McClung spent the last two seasons with Georgetown, averaging 15.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.4 assists as a sophomore, despite battling foot and eye injuries.

    McClung announced on March 29 that he would be testing the NBA Draft waters. He later withdrew from the Draft and announced May 13 he would transfer.

    He chose Texas Tech over Auburn, Memphis, USC, BYU, Arkansas and Wake Forest.

    McClung, who reportedly is looking to play point guard, joins a top recruiting class highlighted by Prolific Prep (CA) combo guard Nimari Burnett and VCU big man grad transfer Marcus Santos-Silva.

    Texas Tech lost Chris Clarke and T.J. Holyfield to graduation, Jahmi’us Ramsey to the NBA Draft and guard Davide Moretti, when he announced he would play professionally overseas.
