Matt Van Scyoc (6'6"/202 lbs) of Green Lake High in Wisconsin now has an offer from the MAC. Yesterday, Miami-OH head coach Charlie Coles offered him.

Van Scyoc said last night, "I talked with Coach Coles after school today and they offered me." He added, "I was pretty excited about it. I told coach that I really enjoyed my visit also."

Van Scyoc told RedHawk Insider previously he had two offers are from North Dakota and Army. Besides Miami, he has interest from Stanford, N. Iowa, Drake, UW-Milwaukee, UWGB, and Idaho. Of that group, he said Miami, Army, and North Dakota stand out.

Van Scyoc made an unofficial visit to Miami the weekend of the Miami-Colorado State football game. He said of the visit:

"I really connected with the players. I spent three days (Thursday-Saturday) there. They are really cool. The coaching staff is really nice. The campus is really neat. Small time atmosphere, but a big college feel. The campus is just beautiful. The business center was awesome."

Academically, Van Scyoc has a 3.7 GPA and will take the ACT in December. He intends to major in business.

Last month he said he is looking for a school that has good academics, that can provide playing time, and third is development under the coaches as a player and as a person.

Last year as a sophomore, Van Scyoc was first-team all-conference. Green Lake finished 24-3 record and won the league title. WisSports.net reported he averaged 14.1 points and 6.6 rebounds per game.

Last year for Green Lake, Van Scyoc reported he shot 50% overall, 40% on three pointers, and 89% at the line.

Van Scyoc compared himself to Dirk Nowitzski and Evan Turner. He said, "I am a good face up and back to the basket player. I used to play only in the post, but I am transitioning to a wing. I have a consistent shot and am athletic." He is working on becoming a better rebounder and ball handler.
