Georgetown head coach Patrick Ewing has reached out to Notre Dame sophomore transfer small forward Matt Ryan. A native of Cortlandt Manor, NY, Ryan is a “sit one, play two” - will have to sit out next season and will have two years of eligibility remaining.

Considered the top priority in the 2015 recruiting class and often touted by head coach Mike Brey as someone who could flirt with school records for 3-point shooting before his career concluded, Ryan was granted his official release Tuesday from the university, which opens the door for him to a transfer.
As a freshman, Ryan averaged 5.1 points and 1.7 rebounds in 14.5 minutes. He also made all four of his career starts.
Ryan shot 43.4 percent from the field and from 3 this season. He made nine of his 10 free throws. Of his 99 shot attempts this season, 83 were behind the 3-point line. His 3-point field goal percentage would have ranked third in the league, but he did not qualify.
