Reports: Four-star shooter Matt McQuaid decommits from SMU

It hasn't been a great strech for SMU.

The week started with elite incoming freshman Emmanuel Mudiay deciding to bypass college and play professionally overseas. And it's ending with the loss of a 2015 commitment.

Matt McQuaid made the choice to decommit from SMU and reopen his recruitment, according to a tweet from his AAU teammate and a report from McQuaid retweeted both reports on his timeline.

McQuaid is arguably the best shooter in the class of 2015 -- and he strengthened his case last week at the LeBron James Skills Academy, when he shot lights-out from 3-point range against the best high school players in the country. There were at least two games in Las Vegas where I didn't see McQuaid miss an outside shot. He can make shots from deep and is also capable of knocking down contested shots. 

McQuaid committed to SMU in early May, but had offers and interest from a long list of schools prior to deciding. Creighton was heavily involved, while Texas, Baylor and many others had been in the mix. The 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Duncanville (Texas) is ranked No. 66 in the 247Sports Composite for the class of 2015. 

SMU is down to one commit in the class of 2015, point guard Sedrick Barefield. However, the Mustangs will also have Virginia Tech transfer Ben Emelogu in the fold in 2015-16, as the talented shooting guard pledged to SMU last week.
