McQuaid commits to Michigan State
When Matt McQuaid backed off his pledge to SMU in late July, Tom Izzo and Michigan State began to aggressively pursue the 6-foot-5 guard out of Duncanville (Tex.) High. Their recruitment of him paid off on Thursday, as McQuaid gave the Spartans a verbal commitment. “I chose Michigan State because I made a good relationship with coach Izzo,” McQuiad told Scout.com. “I feel like I fit in really good in their system,” he added. “When I went down there I learned a lot from the other guys and they always have guys coming back trying to help. Draymond Green and Gary Harris came back. They always have people coming back. There’s tradition there. I liked that and they win.” McQuaid entertained interest from a host of high major schools like Indiana, Texas and Creighton. “They just started recruiting me and coach Izzo thinks I can play the one, two and three,” McQuaid explained. “He wants to develop me. He sees me as more than just a shooter. He sees me as a scorer.” McQuaid took an official visit to Michigan State this past weekend. He said that trip helped push him towards his college choice. Playing for Team Texas Elite in the spring and summer, McQuaid built a reputation as one of the top shooters in the country. While he has deep range and a sure shot, he’s also a solid athlete that is capable of making shots on the move. McQuiad, Scout.com's No. 72 ranked player, is Michigan State's third commitment of the 2015 class. He joins fellow four-star prospects Deyonta Davis and Kyle Ahrens to make up their three-man recruiting class.
