After his recent decision to re-open his recruitment, Indiana has jumped into the mix for class of 2015 Duncanville (Tex.) guard Matt McQuaid.

The 6-foot-5 guard, who had been committed to SMU, opted to reopen the process on July 20 and has attracted a crowded list of suitors according to Jeff Borzello of

SMU will remain on McQuaid’s list, but several other schools have already reached out since the news over the weekend. North Carolina, Virginia, Indiana, Texas, Baylor, LSU, Creighton and others are all showing interest, with everyone besides North Carolina and Virginia extending offers.

McQuaid averaged 15.6 points on the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) circuit for Team Texas Elite, which failed to qualify for the EYBL Finals at the Peach Jam. He hit 46 of his 102 attempts from behind the 3-point arc in 16 games.

Two Indiana coaches — Tom Crean and Steve McClain — were in Las Vegas on Wednesday night to watch McQuaid on the opening night of the third and final July evaluation period.

McQuaid is rated the No. 66 prospect in the country according to the 247Composite.

    Look how much the game is changing in these last 2-3 years. It’s not just Indiana that is valuing shooters all of a sudden. The league is severely depleted of them. Ray Allen is 40 years old, and several teams are vying for him. Look at the ridiculous contracts Kyle Korver and JJ Reddick signed over the last couple years…Mike Miller is cashing in, and he only has one leg. It’s just too easy to defend the paint. We should have Robert Johnson and Max Hoetzel the next 3 years minimum, but I’ll take an athletic shooter like McQuaid all day long….Hulls, Roth, and Hornsby, were dead eyes, but none of them could get their own shot…..I haven’t felt like we had a team/guy that could shoot us back in to a game since AJ Guyton…Now, we have several. If McQuaid signs up, it will start to feel like we’re building “Shooter U.” ….to me, that’s how it should be. Georgetown should be known for their bigs, North Carolina their athletes, and Indiana? Well, we will flat out shoot you out of the gym.

    As long as the object of the game is to put the ball through the hoop, that will always be the most valuable skill.

    The voice in the video sounds like he also does PBS wild game documentaries, “the wily fox stocks its prey with a cunning stealth until suddenly…he pounces”.

    Love Matt’s game by the way.

    102 three attempts in 16 games. The kid isn’t shy.

    I like our aggressiveness in the big southwest area.

    North Carolina, right now anyway, is just as well known for the classes that some of the athletes took, as much as they are for the athletes. lol
