Mac McClung


Best Social Highlight Star

How Does This Individual Represent “Excellence in Engagement”?

Although he hails from a small town in Virginia, Mac McClung is a name known around the nation. Having just finished his freshman season at Georgetown, McClung was as big of a beneficiary of the digital rise of high school hoops as anyone. Frequently featured on Instagram channels including House of Highlights and Overtime, the 6’2 guard (who was merely a three-star recruit) has 725K followers and garnered attention from major media outlets such as SLAM, Bleacher Report, and ESPN as a result of his sensational slam dunks. In a recruiting class that featured Zion Williamson, being heralded as a highlight and hype machine is a high compliment.
