The Seton Hall Pirates have put the DMV in their focus with their most recent scholarship offer. Gate City, Virginia is the target, as class of 2018 point guard Mac McClung received an offer from the Pirates on Wednesday. McClung announced the offer on his personal Twitter account.

McClung recently reopened his recruitment after committing to Steve Pikiell and the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. Seton Hall is not the only player from the Big East Conference to be in on him, either. Georgetown had targeted McClung prior to his commitment to RU. After his decommitment, head coach Patrick Ewing and the Hoyas made an in-home visit to Mac.
Seton Hall was also not the only school to offer him on Wednesday. McClung received an offer from the ACC’s Boston College Eagles as well. Both the Pirates and Eagles were in to see the Team Loaded point guard.
Head coach Kevin Willard currently has one commit for the 2018 class. That being Darnell Brodie, who was recently set to join the Pirates in 2017. Brodie, however, went down to Montverde Academy in Florida instead for a year of prep. Apart from Brodie, it’s open season for the Pirates in the class of 2018. According to VerbalCommits, they have three spots left.
The Pirates have a decent amount of guards, but just two ‘true’ point guards on the roster. That being former Sacred Heart standout Quincy McKnight, who will be eligible in 2018, and 2017 recruit Jordan Walker. So it makes sense that they’re pursuing another player to fill that position of need. McClung would certainly be a very nice addition if the Pirates were to land him.
Mac McClung is a three-star recruit via 247Sports Composite. He ranks 250th overall in the nation in the class of 2018. McClung also ranks 44th among all point guards in the country. In the state of Virginia, Mac ranks eighth among all players in the commonwealth.
