Roy Williams and North Carolina are reportedly interested in Matt McQuaid

North Carolina and Texas are among several teams interested in class of 2015 guard Matt McQuaid, according to CBS Sports' Jeff Borzello.

McQuaid, who decommitted from SMU last week, said coach Larry Brown understood why he re-opened his recruitment.

Borzello reports there are a handful of suitors lining up for McQuaid, a four-star recruit ranked 53rd in his class by ESPN:

SMU will remain on McQuaid's list, but several other schools have already reached out since the news over the weekend. North Carolina, Virginia, Indiana, Texas, Baylor, LSU, Creighton and others are all showing interest, with everyone besides North Carolina and Virginia extending offers.

McQuaid is a 6-foot-5 guard from Texas who is touted as an elite three-point shooter.

McQuaid's decision to decommit from SMU came on the heels of class of 2014 guard Emmanuel Mudiay opting to play professionally in China.
