Ex-Vanderbilt guard Eric McClellan plans to attend Gonzaga

Former Vanderbilt guard Eric McClellan has told he's committed to Gonzaga.

The 6-4 guard led the Commodores in scoring last season through 12 games (14.3 points) but was dismissed from the program after a violation of university policy.

He will be eligible to play for the Bulldogs during the 2014-15 season as long he completes three separate courses over the next seven weeks. Once those courses are completed, McClellan will be eligible to play during the second semester of next season. There is also a chance a waiver will be filed with the NCAA with the hope that McClellan will be eligible for the entire season as along as he completes his academic requirements this summer.

A dynamic scorer, McClellan will only add to a loaded Gonzaga perimeter which already features veterans Kevin Pangos and Gary Bell along with USC transfer Byron Wesley.

"They're [Gonzaga's staff] giving me an opportunity to resurrect my career," McClellan said. "I couldn't be happier. There's a lot of honesty and trust between us right now."

Mark Few's squad went 29-7 last season and lost in the Round of 32 to Arizona. The Bulldogs return three starters from last year's team in Pangos, Bell, and 7-1 center Przemek Karnowski while also adding Kentucky transfer Kyle Wiltjer.
