2015 wing adds offers, interest

Matt Ryan, a 2015 wing prospect out of New York, continues to add high major interest and offers.

Coming out of July, Matt Ryan, a 6-foot-6 wing out of New Rochelle (N.Y.) Iona Prep, was one of the prospects that raised his stock enough to enter the 2015 player rankings.

With his size and ability to shoot the ball from long-range, Ryan was also able to reel in college interest from a host of high major schools.

"Obviously shooting is my biggest strength," he said. "I've gotten interest from a ton of schools based on that. With my size that's a big attraction. I can guard a lot of positions. I've gotten more athletic and stronger. I've improved my ball handling. I'm versatile."

Already Ryan has scholarship offers from Notre Dame, Vanderbilt, Boston College, Pittsburgh, Creighton, Clemson, West Virginia, Arizona State, Virginia, Providence, Iowa State and Rutgers.

Kentucky, North Carolina, Duke, Michigan, Georgetown and Stanford are also showing interest.

"I think right now I'm sort of in the middle of my recruitment," Ryan said. "The past six months I've picked up around 30 offers, but now I have 10 more schools, the really high majors, contacting me. I don't think I'll plan on committing for at least a year."

In the fall Ryan took a pair of unofficial visits.

"I went out to Notre Dame and Rutgers in September," he said. "Those are my two visits this fall. Notre Dame trip was great. Same with Rutgers."

Ryan hasn't set up any visit dates, but he has talked to Georgetown, Virginia and Duke about visiting their schools in the near future.

"I told everybody I'm going to try and hit the east coast in the next few months," he said.

Ryan said Steve Donahue, Mike Brey and Johnny Dawkins are the head coaches that have been in to see him this fall.

Ryan, Scout.com's No. 95 prospect, averaged 18 points, eight rebounds and five assists as a sophomore.
