Soon after his freshman year of high school, McClung grew more interested in basketball and began practicing consistently, with the goal of making the National Basketball Association (NBA).
In eighth grade, McClung fractured his arm skiing, and he worked with former Gate City High coach Greg Ervin to improve his shooting form.
As a sophomore on the varsity basketball team at Gate City High School, McClung began dunks. The rest of his high school career saw him rise to prominence as an acrobatic dunker.
