Quinnipiac Guard Giovanni McLean to Transfer to Texas Tech

Texas Tech head coach Chris Beard adds a final puzzle piece to his roster as Quinnipiac guard Giovanni McLean is set to transfer to Texas Tech.

Head coach Chris Beard continues to add talent to this team as Quinnipiac’s Giovanni McLean (6-1/195) will transfer to Texas Tech. McLean is immediately eligible and will have just this final year to play for Texas Tech.

Last year, McLean averaged 12.9 points a game, shooting 36% from the field, making 78% of his free throws, while averaging 4.7 rebounds a game and 3.3 assists to 3.0 turnovers per game. McLean made 33% of his three-point shots, making 54 of 162 on the year.

McLean is originally from New York and went to a couple of JUCO colleges before committing to Oklahoma after his sophmore year, but had problems with his transcript and moved on to Quinnipiac. There’s not a ton of great video out there, but check out some streetball highlights because those highlights are the best highlights (take it to the rim and don’t you dare call a foul).

And if my scholarship numbers are correct, Beard will have four scholarships available at the end of the year: Aaron Ross, Devon Thomas, Anthony Livingston and McLean.  I should also mention that there’s now serious competition at every spot. Not that there wasn’t before, but these guys are going to be fighting for minutes.
