Georgetown high-flyer Mac McClung is declaring for the 2020 NBA Draft, he told ESPN's Jonathan Givony.

McClung added that he'll hire an agent who's certified by the NCAA, which means he'll be eligible to return to Georgetown if he removes his name from the draft.

In his sophomore season during 2019-20, McClung averaged 15.7 points and 2.4 assists in 21 games.

He's also garnered a notable online following thanks in part to his strong dunking ability. McClung currently has more than 714,000 followers on Instagram, where he received over a million views for a single post featuring his best highlights as a freshman.

Before heading to Georgetown, McClung was a high school star in Virginia. He broke the state's single-season scoring record that was previously held by Allen Iverson, doing so in five fewer games than the Hall of Famer.

In his text message to Givony, the 20-year-old McClung said he hopes to use the draft process to receive feedback from NBA teams and connect with them "on a more personal level."

Despite the indefinite suspension of the 2019-20 season, the NBA has not announced any changes to the draft, which is currently scheduled for June 25.
