McBride Commits To UA
McBride (6-foot-6, 190 pounds) was planning on taking visits to Kansas State and Pittsburgh, but after accepting the Razorbacks' offer, he will now cancel those trips.
"I prefer Arkansas out of the three schools," McBride said. "I like the coaching staff, I like the facilities and I have just really been humbled and honored that they are recruiting me with all their tradition and they have been really respectful to me.
"This is my first pick and where I want to go."
McBride averaged 21 points and nine rebounds this past season. Known for his long-range jumper, McBride should provide Arkansas with a needed sharpshooter from the outside.
"I was reading in Slam magazine that Ronnie Brewer could play the one to the four and I see they have big men," said McBride. "It looks like all they lack is a shooter and I hope I can come in and be that and help."
As a sophomore at Monterey, McBride — a two-time All-Coast Conference selection — shot 46 percent from the 3-point range. During his freshman year, he hit 53 percent from the behind the arc.
McBride is Arkansas' third commitment counted towards the 2005-06 class, joining 6-9 center Cyrus McGowan, of Meridian, Miss., and 6-1 point guard Sean McCurdy, of Jersey City, NJ.
