McClung made the announcement on Twitter.
McClung transferred from Georgetown in early May and committed to Texas Tech later that month, choosing the Red Raiders over a final group that also included Wake Forest, Memphis, Auburn, BYU, USC and Arkansas. Texas Tech made a strong push late in this recruitment after starting guard Davide Moretti decided to pursue professional options in Europe.

A 6-foot-2 guard from Virginia, McClung was one of the most sought-after transfers on the market. He averaged 15.7 points and 2.4 assists in 21 games last season, shooting 32.3% from 3-point range as a sophomore.
Texas Tech, which took a step back last season after reaching the national championship game in 2019, was ranked No. 14 in ESPN's Way-Too-Early preseason rankings. McClung should fight for a starting spot immediately alongside returning starter Kyler Edwards (11.4 PPG) and five-star freshman Nimari Burnett. Assuming he buys into Chris Beard's defensive system, McClung should provide a major boost offensively to the Red Raiders given his athleticism and aggressiveness at that end of the floor.
