Jayhawks pick up 2020 commitment from another Louisiana prospect

With the early December signing period now just a couple months away, the Kansas football team added another commitment to its already crowded 2020 recruiting class.

Steven McBride, a three-star receiver from Gonzales, La., announced Tuesday his plans to play for Les Miles and the Jayhawks.

Listed by Rivals as a 6-foot-1, 165-pound prospect, McBride plays at East Ascension High, and reportedly had scholarship offers from Louisiana Tech, Louisiana-Monroe, Northwestern State and Nicholls.

In a 2020 recruiting class that currently includes 26 high school prospects, McBride becomes the fifth potential future Jayhawk in the group from Louisiana, joining fellow three-star recruits defensive end Khari Coleman, defensive tackle Kenean Caldwell, linebacker Taiwan Berryhill and cornerback Tanner Hooker.

All verbal commitments, of course, are nonbinding. Football recruits in the 2020 class have the opportunity to sign at the earliest between Dec. 18 and Dec. 20, before National Signing Day comes on Feb. 5, 2020.

Maybe this is just the beginning of the "Dearmon effect."

Very good news. Congrats and welcome to the Hill!

Also, glad he didn't imply that he's over 100% committed. That hasn't been a good sign.

He is 6’ 1”. We lost the 6’ 4” receiver. I’m glad for the commit, but we need some tall receivers. The tall receivers seem to win almost every pass that is thrown up in the air. Need to get a good quarterback too.

We are currently #37 in the top 40 recruiting classes for next year. The only other Big 12 teams in the top 40 are Texas and Oklahoma. If we hold on to most of these recruits, this will be the best recruiting class in 20years.

@Karen. I would like to see a study done on +100% commitments and their actual commitments. I do understand that >100% is a mathematical possibility, so it would be good to know whether or not there is a correlation between >100% commitment and 0% follow through.

Am I the only one whose noticing that we have a glaring lack of defensive lineman in the class? If we can't put pressure on the quarterback then we can have all the LB and all the offensive weapons in the world and it won't matter. I just hope that we start recruiting some D-lineman.

Brett McCabe 3 years, 1 month ago

Chris, if they are committed to the 3-4, then they will be recruiting fewer DLs. That’s my only guess.
