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.
