Matt McQuaid announced on Wednesday that heading overseas to sign with the Fraport Skyliners. McQuaid graduated this May from Michigan State after averaging a career-high 9.8 pts on 43% shooting. The sharpshooter was a reliable piece of Tom Izzo’s rotation, as he started 49 out of his 140 games played.

The former Spartan finished his career 8th all-time in Michigan State history in 3-pt FGs made. McQuaid played this summer with the Detroit Pistons but he had a tough time cracking the rotation, competing against Svi Mykhailiuk, Khyri Thomas and Bruce Brown for playing time on the wing. He will look to carryover the aforementioned shooting ability into a professional setting with Fraport.

The Fraport Skyliners play in Frankfurt, Germany and compete in the Basketball Bundesliga. McQuaid won’t be the only American on the roster, as he joins Quantez Robinson, Tra Holder and Tyler Larson.
