LAWRENCE, Kan. (WIBW) -- The University of Kansas men's basketball team now has a second oral commitment from the Class of 2019.

Arkansas-native and four-star point guard Issac McBride announced his decision on Monday, choosing the Jayhawks after an official recruiting visit to KU and a stop in at Late Night in the Phog.

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound senior was also recruited by Arkansas, Oklahoma State, Wichita State, TCU and Tennessee among others before narrowing down his top three to Kansas, Auburn and Virginia.

Last high school season at Arkansas Baptist Prep in Little Rock, McBride averaged 24.5 points and four rebounds per game, shooting 51 percent from the floor and 80 percent from the free throw line.

McBride joins Blue Valley Northwest senior Christian Braun in the Jayhawks' Class of 2019. Braun, a 6-6 four-star small forward, announced his commitment to KU on Sept. 17.

According to the Kansas City Star, Kansas does not have any scholarships remaining for the Class of 2019, but expects several non-seniors to enter the 2019 NBA Draft which would free up space.
