McClung has given Red Raiders head coach Chris Beard a new go-to guy that can score whenever needed. This transfer has made a great impact on Texas Tech’s program and McClung will look to lead them to a deep tournament run.

Jahvon Quinerly:

After being recruited by many good teams out of high schools like Villanova, Kansas, and Virginia, Quinerly decided on attending Villanova. He struggled at Villanova due to lack of playing time causing him to never really find his footing. Quinerly has, however, been excellent this season since transferring to Alabama.

He has been a great transfer for Alabama averaging 13.3 points while helping to lead them to a 12-3 record. He has been the perfect point guard for head coach Nate Oats. Quinerly has the team playing with outstanding pace and shooting three-pointers with high efficiency. Overall if Alabama can continue to succeed, Quinerly will be one of the best transfers of the offseason.
