"When it came down to Wisconsin and Marquette, it come down to who wanted me more and where I could see myself," Matthews told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The 6-foot-4 Matthews out of Madison (Wisc.) Memorial is the third Top 100 prospect to commit to Tom Crean and his staff this year. Jerel McNeal, a versatile guard who was ranked No. 98, picked the Golden Eagles first. Then, later that same day, No. 63 Dominic James, a guard out of Indiana, selected Marquette over Purdue.
Matthews entered the summer ranked No. 83 on TheInsiders.com Top 100.
Last year at Memorial he averaged 15.5 points and his team reached the state finals.
