McTear, who visited Portland earlier this week, talked with us about his decision.
"I went there on Tuesday and I really enjoyed the guys," said McTear. "I got along with them. I also really respect Coach Holton. He's played at the highest level and I know he can teach me a lot."
McTear said he made a commitment to Coach Holton at the end of his visit. "They're going to send me the letter of intent to sign," said McTear.
