McBride Quotes, Articles etc...

  • “I feel like Kansas was the team that just stepped up there and realized and recognized and saw the talent in me,” McBride told “When they offered everybody else starting coming in. And that was a big part for me. A big thing for me is loyalty and respect for people, and I feel like Kansas has shown me that. And they’ve done it by example as in offering me and not knowing a lot about me, but trusting the eye test and doing character checks and stuff like that.”

    “It was an honor, but I was really happy to see that someone had finally recognized and then other people came in,” McBride said. “So Kansas set the bar. I just feel like once you commit to schools, and stuff like that, you want to make sure that you’re going to be 110 percent committed and not wave back and forth.”

    McBride called Allen Fieldhouse “the Mecca of basketball,” and noted it even exceeded his own expectations.

    It’s official. 4-star PG Issac McBride commits to #KUbball Nice pick up for Kansas.

    McBride says KU checks all the boxes & he appreciates the genuine nature and family atmosphere of the program.

  • This kid is @KUSTEVE dream.

    McBride said the three main factors that led him to pick KU were that family atmosphere, his development as a player under KU coach Bill Self, whom he called as good a basketball mind as any coach out there, and KU’s strong academics.

  • @BShark That’s my guy!!!

  • “Coach Self really compared me to him in a way,” McBride said. “Similar stories and how they found Frank Mason in Las Vegas also, in the same gym in Las Vegas. He said if I was to come to (KU) he would push me so I could have some of the same success that Frank Mason had.”

    Asked Monday to describe his game, the 4-star guard who considers himself a combo guard and is comfortable playing the 1 and the 2 said: “Focused and determined. That’s pretty much my game there summed. I feel like I can do it all.”

    His high school coach, Baptist Prep’s Steve Miller, echoed those thoughts.

    “Issac is just a coach’s dream,” Miller said. “This is the kind of young man you get to coach maybe once or twice in your career. On the basketball floor, he can do it all. We want the ball in his hands, but he’s very unselfish and likes to get his teammates involved.”

  • Put him at the knee of Marcus, Charlie, and Devon for a year, and we’ve got a truly outstanding kid, both off and on the court. He is an ankle breaker deluxe, and he can flat shoot. Frank wishes he had that kind of quickness. That’s Devon Dotson quick.

  • Can you imagine Dotson, Marcus, and “Bake” on the perimeter next year? I’m telling you…Russ Rob, Mario, and Sherron could only dream of having quickness like that. I’m naming him Bake, after the old St Louis Cardinal outfielder, Bake McBryde. Wissox will remember him, I’m sure.

  • :joy:

  • Very happy with this one. Sounds like he’s got a great head on his shoulders. I believe he’ll be a fan favorite

  • Scott Chasen did a video chat that included some stuff on McBride.

    Some good nuggets are that he actually visited KU on his own two years ago just to check out KU. Also had decided to come to KU long before the late night visit.
