A source with knowledge of Issac "Mackey" McBride's recruiting plans told on Monday afternoon that the four-star prospect from Little Rock, Ark., will make an announcement regarding his college choice at 5 p.m. Monday.

McBride, a 6-foot, 180-pound, rising guard who exploded onto the recruiting scene with a strong summer, is ranked No. 109 in the 2019 class by

He has a final three of KU, Auburn and Virginia.

In addition to making a visit to KU over the weekend for Late Night, McBride recently talked with Rivals about his three finalists.

McBride on Kansas: “I feel like it’s a very high-caliber program. They just picked up two really talented guards in Quentin Grimes and Devon Dotson. They are always recruiting good guards and good big guys. They always have a team good enough to make a run in the tournament.”

McBride on Auburn: “Auburn is a great school. Coach (Bruce) Pearl definitely lets their guards go. They all can shoot it and they have a lot of options. What they lack in size they make up for in heart. Coach (Wes) Flanigan recruited me at UALR and he kept recruiting me when he went to Auburn.”

McBride on Virginia: “Virginia is one of the best basketball programs in the country. They are known for their philosophy on the defense. Coach (Tony) Bennett is a great coach and an even better person. He develops great players and knows what he’s doing.”

When asked about his visit to KU on Sunday by recruiting insider Matt Scott, McBride said: "The visit was amazing. The atmosphere was crazy. Truly something you can only experience if you are in the Fieldhouse."

He added that his decision would be coming "soon," and we now know that soon meant about 24 hours later.

Stay in touch with throughout the evening for McBride's decision and reaction to whatever move he makes.

would be nice to get him but with Moore and most likely Dotson coming back for the 2019-2020 season he might not get too much playing time at KU..
