LUBBOCK, Tex. (WJHL) – Texas Tech fans can breathe a sigh of relief Thursday night because Gate City native Mac McClung has taken his name out of the transfer portal and will likely return as a Red Raider next season.

McClung wrote in a tweet Thursday that the initial decision to enter the portal “Just didn’t feel right in my heart. Whatever decision I make in the near future with the NBA process, I will always want to be apart of Red Raider Nation.”

McClung is still going through the NBA Draft process but has not retained an agent.

The Big 12 Newcomer of the Year as a junior was Texas Tech’s leading scorer, averaging 15.5 points.
